Commuters blame journey for stress at work

Two
thirds of London commuters blame the transport system for high stress levels on
arrival at work.

Eighty-three
per cent of women and 63 per cent men claim that if commuting got any worse
they would consider changing jobs, according to research by recruitment firm
Jonathan Wren.

Despite
this only 11 per cent of those questioned have the option of flexible working
as a way to avoiding peak travelling periods.

“Seminars
for HR professionals and employers on how to deal with stress amongst employees
can benefit companies and individuals,” said Shaun McCarthy, chief executive of
Jonathan Wren.

He
continued, “It is up to employers to look at alternatives, such as flexi-time,
for those who face an unbearable journey to the workplace.”

Over
1 million commuters enter central London every morning between 7am and 10am.
