In this report we consider ways in which we can reduce stress and boost workplace engagement to help improve UK productivity. We present new analysis of Understanding Society, a longitudinal survey of 40,000 households across the UK. We examine how stress affects workers, reducing productivity, and how low financial resilience is a substantial contributing factor.
