Individuals in high-stress jobs die younger, according to new study


Those in high-stress jobs with little control over their workflow are dying younger, according to new research.

The Indiana University Kelley School of Business sampled 2,363 Wisconsin residents in their 60s over a seven-year period.

Their findings showed that those with high job demands are associated with a 15.4 percent increase in the likelihood of death, compared to low job demands who have more flexibility and discretion in their jobs.

The study suggests that employers restructure some jobs to provide employees with more say about how the work gets done.
