You’re not alone – estate agents endure the most stress at work ahead of broadcasters and police officers, according to a new survey of UK professionals.86% of estate agents canvassed by the Boundless Happiness Survey recently said they experienced some sort of stress at work and 43% said they were ‘very stressed’.Next down the list, some 80% of broadcasters and 67% of police officers experience stress at work followed by 63% of chefs and 60 per cent of recruiters.This compares to a national figure of 47% for all professionals, although the survey found that on average public sector workers endured more pressure at work compared with private sector ones; 9% said they were ‘very stressed’ at work.Workplace stress“There is always going to be some level of stress in the workplace,” says Ian Holmes-Lewis, Director at events company Boundless.“It’s not surprising that estate agents, whose work revolves around high value assets, tough targets and a changing marketplace, feel the pressure.”The poll also found that employees on average get stressed 5.4 times a week and that the least stressed are those working in sport and leisure.Although the survey doesn’t point to why we’re all so stressed, a similar poll earlier this year by rewards firm Perkbox revealed that long hours of work were the most common cause, followed by concerns about performance, customer satisfaction and office politics.High earners – those paid over £40,000 – are the most likely to experience stress, it found.Ian Holmes-Lewis perkbox boundless stress estate agents November 20, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Powered by Firework 20th September 2018 was a sad day fro Cristiano Ronaldo. The former Real Madrid hit man had just joined Juventus, and on their first UEFA Champions League group stage face off against Valencia, the Portuguese striker faced a red card, on just 29 minutes into the game. Reduced to tears, the superstar left the pitch, while the Old Lady went onto win the match at the Mestalla Stadium. However, what happened next was crazy, as the sorrowful day for Ronaldo became a joyous day for the rest of the squad. Why? Because Ronaldo had to buy all of his teammates an iMac each!Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/ReutersThere was a thumping rule behind Ronaldo’s gesutre. Former Bianconeri manager Massimiliano Allegri, the in-charge of the club at that time, made a bizarre and hilarious rule, that if any player is sent off during a match, he would have to present all of his squad mates iMacs, as a ‘punishment’.The incident was revealed by none other than the club’s iconic goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. In his self-run podcast ‘Prosto w Szczenę’, the Polish international revealed the bizarre punishment Allegri had put Ronaldo through for that one red.Advertisement “Yes, we all have an iMac. It took a very long time because he (Ronaldo) couldn’t process that red card and insisted high and low that he was not doing anything wrong.” Szczesny said in the podcast.The 29 year old continued: “It took him a while, about two months of arguing, but we all have received an iMac.”Advertisement However, Szczesny also revealed that he himself once became the stooge of a similar punishment from the Italian gaffer. Similar to the red card, Allegri made another rule where any player coming late to training would have to buy all of his teammates headphones, and Szczesny himself had to do the same once.“I thought it was Tuesday, but it turned out to be Wednesday that day. Allegri called me and said everyone was already there. When I arrived half an hour late on the training field, everyone said: “oh, we’re getting presents!” I ended up buying headphones for the boys,” the Old Lady keeper added.Also read-Fan compares football players and managers to Indian mythological characters in hilarious Twitter thread!José Mourinho names his all time XI among players he’s coached – and Manchester United gets a cold shoulder!
