Female employees are more highly stressed at work than men, and they’re more concerned about their health and place a higher priority on staying healthy than their male counterparts, a new survey finds.

Plus, women are more inclined than men to do something about it.

According to researchers at consulting firm Aon Hewitt, 58% of female employees say they experience high stress, compared to 44% of men.

Almost three-fourths (73%) of working women feel managing their stress is important to their overall health, compared to 57% of men.

Women are more likely to view personal stress, health care affordability and lack of employer support as obstacles to improving their personal health, Aon Hewitt found.

The survey was sponsored by the National Business Group on Health.
