Most employees occasionally feel stressed out at work. In fact, the majority of American workers are stressed on any given workday.
But when analyzed by generation, a particular segment of the American population feels significantly more stressed at work than their counterparts: millennials.
That's according to a new study from Deloitte Greenhouse, a professional service firm. Through an online survey, Deloitte asked a sample of 2,725 people a series of questions about their stress levels, how stressful they find various workplace events and circumstances to be, how effective they are under stress and how often they use a variety of coping strategies.
The research found that millennials, which Deloitte defines as born between 1981-1997, are the most stressed generation followed by Gen-Xers and Baby Boomers.
The study also found that millennial professionals with certain workstyles are more likely to be stressed out.
