University of Manchester's curator insight, August 20, 2015 12:02 PM

Professor Tarani Chandola, a Medical Sociology specialist in the School of Social Sciences at The University of Manchester, has been examining workplace stress for more than 15 years. He said there is a common-held misconception about work stress - that it’s tougher at the top.

 

He added: “There is a strong impression that people at the top of the occupational hierarchy - bosses in charge - have the most stress.

 

“However, most of my research is actually showing that it’s those lower down the social and occupational ladder that have higher levels of stress.”
