Workplace stress has an influence on sleep. People who are stressed sleep less. The Stress in the Workplace Study, conducted by the international Paylab.com portal, shows that employees who regularly sleep 6 hours or less during the work week are more likely to complain about stress at work. They suffer from an onslaught of duties and responsibilities, low salary, overtime work, and a lack of free time and rest. The survey was conducted at the start of 2017 and involved a sample of 58,508 employees in 11 European countries.
The pay gap between men and women endures and is a pressing issue almost worldwide. A comparison of salaries at the position level provides a relevant insight into fair financial compensation. Based on an analysis conducted by the international Paylab.com portal, women earn 2 to 11% less on average than men in the same positions in individual CEE countries.
The willingness of people from Central and Eastern Europe to travel abroad for work is quite high. Only three out of ten employees from this region completely rule-out the option of working abroad. Almost half the CEE region’s employees declared a willingness to travel abroad for work, either for several weeks or months, or a longer period. But they are more choosy about the job offers. Men are significantly more interested in working abroad than women.
