The long established belief that stress and heart disease are linked and that the workplace can be a significant contributor to stress intuitively seems to make a lot of sense. A piece of research from UCL has just been released attempting to prove beyond reasonable doubt that workplace stress can really do some serious damage to the individual.
Then the hammer blow.
The researchers carried out their study amongst 10,000 Civil Servants. You would be very hard pressed to find a more indolent, ‘job for life’, ‘jobsworth’ and deeply unproductive ‘working’ group if you tried. This sector of the economy has to be by some considerable distance the least stressed working cohort in the UK.
One can only conclude therefore that the link between workplace stress and heart disease is now a fact.
