Posted by temasektimes on September 14, 2012
Polling some 2,281 respondents, 83.3 percent said that their work stress has also increased in the last six months.
Two-thirds of Singapore workers said their workload has increased when compared with six months ago, according to a survey by online job portal JobsCentral.
Sixty per cent of the respondents reported that they stay in the office for at least an hour after work hours at least three days a week while one in three said they bring their work home to complete.
The second part of the survey reveals that one in four Singapore workers feel bullied at work.
Seventy-four per cent of the respondents who said they were bullied indicated that colleagues are the biggest bully. Sixty-two per cent of them said that they were bullied by their superiors and 21 per cent said they were bullied by their clients.
Common bullying behaviours reported by respondents include unfair and biased allocation of workload, verbal abuse and personal attacks, ostracising, wrongful accusation, abuse of seniority or power, and gossip.
