Young people in the workplace: every day at the tipping point
Many young people are under pressure to be eliminated at any time. Zhao Ran is an employee of China Netcom Beijing Branch.
There are 18 employees in his department, 60% of whom are 26 or 7 years old.
He told reporters: “The network communications industry is undergoing transformation every year. The name of our company and the project operator have also been changing. Our work experience has increased, but the relatively low salary has not risen but has fallen. This makes us a little bitConfused.
“Lan Fen, a media reporter, is under pressure to be eliminated at any time.
Her department has tailored half of its employees.
“I have almost no personal time, I give it all to work, I have no friends, and I often talk to someone.
When I’m too tired to work, I have no appetite for food. I sleep and dream at night. I write interviews.
“Lan Fen said.
Surveys have shown that young people in their 20s and 30s are most stressed.
Song Guoping, a counselor at the Institute of Psychology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said: “Young people who have not worked long after graduating from college often have high expectations for work and think that they can use their monotonous university life to achieve their own success.
But after a while, when they found that they were just a screw, they easily felt that the work was meaningless and worthless, leaving them idle or repeating job slack.
“Because college students have long used test scores as their own evaluation system and are overly attached to this system, once they leave school, they are at a loss.
“Song Guoping said,” If you give up vanity and accept your own social evaluation, you can smoothly go through this transition period. ”
Song Guoping believes that some companies are short-sighted when making decisions, and are prone to conflicts of interest with employees, which brings many psychological problems to employees.
The Chinese generally lack better emotional education and are more vulnerable to stress when it comes to regulating emotional ability.
Worry is only the initial manifestation of professional pressure. 61% of white-collar workers have professional confusion. Last year, 30-year-old Dr. Liu jumped to a large state-owned enterprise as an overseas project manager. This was his first time abroad.
On National Day, he returned home and jumped to commit suicide.
Song Guoping later realized that the overseas employees of this state-owned enterprise are generally not allowed to bring their families, and will be dismissed soon if they fail to complete the task. Even if the performance is outstanding, there are not many opportunities to return to China.
Mr. Liu is an introvert and a perfectionist.
“After he went abroad for half a month, he began to become particularly easy to lose his temper, especially wanted to succeed, and there was no time to suffocate.
There are more than a dozen employees in his branch. They work in the office and work in the staff apartment. There is no private space, and there are often fierce arguments between colleagues.
Experts said that psychological stress in the workplace is divided into three stages, showing different symptoms: the first stage is physical symptoms, which can cause insomnia, doubt, doubt, poor appetite, etc .; the second stage will produce withdrawal behavior, which is notWilling to go to work, asking for leave without a reason, unwilling to participate in various social activities, etc .; the last stage will produce offensive behaviors, such as angry, conflicting, destructive, and even self-harm, self-abuse or suicidal tendencies.
A recent survey by Xiangyang Career Consulting in Shanghai showed that 61% of white-collar workers admit that they have a lot of career troubles, often feel “heart-wrenched”, feel that work is meaningless and can be done for survival.
