MUMBAI: Four of every 10 working in India Inc. are showing high levels of burnout, distress, anxiety, and depression, according to a study conducted by global consulting firm McKinsey. As per the report, a toxic workplace is the biggest reason behind these.

"Indian respondents expressed elevated rates of every outcome - burnout, distress, anxiety, and depression. For each outcome factor, around four in ten respondents reported symptoms," said the report -'Employee mental health and burnout-a time to act'.

The study, conducted across geographies, showed that in India toxic workplace behaviour is dominant, accounting for approximately 90% of explained variance for every outcome. 

"Such behavior also accounts for 90% of explained variance in intent to leave, with employees reporting a desire to leave their job at a level approximately 60% greater than the global average," said the McKinsey note.

The study was conducted from February to April 2022 by the McKinsey Health Institute. 

They surveyed 15,000 employees and 1,000 human-resource (HR) decision-makers in 15 countries, with India, Japan, Australia, and China representing the Asian region.
