January 2014

As people get stuck back into work after the Christmas break, January is a time when stress levels can be high and tensions fraught.

CareerCast.com have released their annual list of the top ten most, and least, taxing jobs – using criteria such as physical demands, competitiveness, deadlines and travel requirements. The military, emergency services, events co-ordinators and PR executives all featured in the top ten this year with their high stress scores, with audiologists, hair stylists and jewellers comprising the top three lowest scorers.

While this list uses specific criteria to score the stress levels of various careers, many factors can cause your work to be more stressful than it needs to be – whether you are an employer, facing a challenging employee situation, or an employee and think your rights are not being met.
