Working hard for little reward? Research shows that it can increase the risk of heart disease
If you're working hard for little reward, it's not just dissatisfaction you may have to worry about.
New research suggests that men who work hard at stressful jobs, while not getting enough rewards for their efforts, may be at risk for heart disease compared to men who don't have those stresses.
"Our study highlights the urgent need to proactively address stressful work conditions to create healthier work environments that benefit both employees and employers," said lead study author Mathilde Lavigne-Robichaud, from the University of Quebec in Canada. .
The most recent data available from the European Heart Network show that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in men in all countries.
