Mentally exhausted Singapore workers

A survey has found Singapore workers to be mentally exhausted. 

The Jobstreet.com survey of 250 Singaporean employees found 60 per cent of them saying that stress, depression, and other factors have increased their mental fatigue. 

Most employees surveyed took between one and 10 days of sick leave annually. 

70 per cent of workers claimed they will not apply for sick leave when feeling unwell but are still fit for work. 

A separate JobStreet.com survey on employee health was given to 50 Singaporean companies in June. 

According to the survey, 60 per cent of the companies organized wellness programs to improve employees' health. 

The most popular wellness program was shown to be free or subsidized health screening. 

On-site fitness programs and subsidized gym memberships are other popular wellness programs offered by companies. 

However, only a minority of employees said they utilised the programme. 

Most cited the lack of time and an overwhelming workload.
