Why working women are more stressed than ever & how to manage it

A survey of over 26,000 Australian professionals shows that over a quarter of women experience chronic stress symptoms as opposed to less than an eighth of men.

Springfox’s Chief Knowledge Officer, Peta Sigley, says this is due, in part, to the unique challenges that women face, particularly when they are the primary caregiver in the family, and also in the workforce. The fact that 82% of Australia’s single parent families are headed by women is relevant, as is the fact that, according to Sigley, an inadequate number of workplace measures address the needs of this group.
