Workplace Depression Tied to How Boss Treats You: Study

You should think that a huge workload would cause depression but this is not necessarily the case. However, when the piles on the desk are accompanied by an unfair boss and unclear work procedures, things can go wrong.

This is the result of new research from Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus University, Bispebjerg Hospital, Regional Hospital West Jutland and the National Research Centre for the Working Environment.

A total of 4,500 Danish public employees participated in a comprehensive study of the connection between the psychosocial work environment and depression. The study was conducted between 2007 and 2009 and consisted of both questionnaires, personal interviews, and biological saliva samples measuring the stress hormone cortisol among participants.
