Red, White and Mostly Blue: Monster Data Shows that the US Continues to Suffer the Most from Sunday Night Blues
A global poll conducted by Monster reveals that, 76% of respondents in the US report having “really bad” Sunday night blues. This differs greatly from the rest of the world, where only 45% report experiencing “really bad” Sunday night blues. Despite positive economic news, there has been no significant change in either the US or the rest of the world for those experiencing the Sunday night blues since 2013, when 73% of US respondents had “really bad” Sunday night blues and 47% from the rest of the world felt that way at the time.
“The level of anxiety Americans feel heading into the workweek remains significantly high and is counterproductive,” said Monster Career Expert, Vicki Salemi. “While this could be due to residual stress of the economic downturn or the pressure of doing more with less in the workplace, there’s always an opportunity for people to identify and proactively address the things about their jobs that make them unhappy.”
Monster, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW) asked visitors to their site the question, “Are your ‘Sunday Night Blues’ bad enough to make you want a new job?” and received over 2,200 responses.
Key results from the latest poll, excluding the 20% of respondents who do not have Sunday blues, include:
