Canada’s workforce is bracing for a tense holiday season, with fewer people planning to take time off this year and a majority reporting work or job-hunt related stress.
LinkedIn’s latest Workforce Confidence Index report – based on a survey conducted between November 2nd and 15th – sheds a light on how LinkedIn members are spending the last couple months of the year of 2020, compared to the same period last year, as well as how men and women may be experiencing remote work differently.
Holiday plans and sentiment for the winter:
- Some 65% of employed workers said they’d been somewhat or very stressed about their work just entering the season, while 78% of jobseekers said the same about their jobseeking activity.
- 55% say they’re planning to take less time off overall than the same time last year, and just 13% are planning to take more time.
- About 31% say they will spend more time working this year, compared to just 17% planning to work less and 53% planning to keep the course.
