It has been estimated that stress costs the US up to $300 billion annually as a result of productivity deficits and healthcare costs.
In 2019/20 there were an estimated 828,000 workers in the UK affected by work-related stress, depression or anxiety. This represents 2,440 per 100,000 workers and results in an estimated 17.9 million working days lost.
