The global survey on wellbeing found that the most stressed and disengaged employees were in the U.S. and Canada, with the region climbing to No. 2 in the world. Women are also the most stressed, and working women in the U.S. and Canada were among the most stressed out workers worldwide. The COVID-19 waves that hit Europe and South Asia in 2021 caused a decrease in the well-being of workers. No matter how disruptive the workplace is, women and people of color will still feel the effects.
