How has COVID-19 affected employee well-being?


Almost two in three workers in Singapore are feeling more anxious and stressed


There has been a marked increase in anxiety and stress among employees in Singapore since the COVID-19 outbreak.

Almost two-thirds (65%) of employees said they are feeling more anxious in the current environment and 64% are saying they are feeling more stressed.

Fortunately, a third (35%) of workers reported that their mental health has improved over the last few weeks. The main reasons for this included working from home (27%) and feeling less stressed (17%) or being busy at work (15%).

However, 26% said their mental health has declined in this time, according to a new study by Qualtrics.

Employees said the decline in health has been due to:

  • Stress (25%)

  • Anxiety (22%)

  • Being worried about their job (19%)

  • Feeling fatigued (7%)

  • Working from home (6%)

Additionally, 68% of employees surveyed said they are at least somewhat worried about losing their jobs. About 13% are not worried at all.
