2020 Stress Survey Results

Stress was already an issue in American culture before COVID-19 but we all know the pandemic took it to new levels previously unimaginable to our generation.

Understanding this, we wanted to take a closer look and measure its impact on our members and their employees. On October 28, 2020, we emailed our members a survey asking them about stress since COVID-19. To view the results, click here.
