Workplace Stress & Burnout in the Philippines:
The Eye-Opening Numbers

According to a Deloitte study, 70% of Gen Zs and 63% of millennials in the Philippines are experiencing burnout because of the “demands of their workload.” What’s more alarming is that this number is a far cry from the global average of 45%. This means that the majority of the Philippines’ workforce has experienced or will be experiencing burnout due to work-related

Unfortunately, this national prevalence of burnout also translates to higher incidences of anxiety and stress, with 48% of millennials and 68% of Gen Z in the Philippines claiming to be anxious and stressed out all or most of the time – higher than the global average of 46% for Gen Z, and 38% for millennials.

Due to the prevalence of both burnout and work-related stress in the Philippines, statistics regarding resignations are also increasing. 58% of respondents state that many of their colleagues resigned due to “work pressure,” 15 points higher than the global average.

To address the rising statistics regarding burnout and workplace stress in the Philippines, enterprises and institutions have put in place support measures to better assist their employees. 80% of Gen Z and Millennial Filipinos have said that their employers have paid more attention to
them during the pandemic.

However, while these measures have been productive, 70% still state that such initiatives have not resulted in any meaningful impact for them.
