Working under pressure

A recent Eurostat (2019) study confirmed that one in every 10 employees always worked under time pressure (11%) whilst one in four (35%) often did.

At country level, Malta registered the highest share of employed persons who always worked under time pressure, with 21% in 2019. In contrast, this share was lowest in Slovakia (4%). For the group of persons who often worked under time pressure, Czech Republic was at the highest end of the scale with 39%, while Spain was at the lowest end with 15%. In Lithuania, more than half of employed persons sometimes worked under time pressure (56%), compared with less than one in three in Malta (29%). The highest rate of employed persons who never experienced time pressure at work was observed in Spain, with 39%. In comparison, only 8% of employed persons in Finland were in that situation.
