Women Face More Stress At Work Because They Are Better At Keeping To Deadlines Than Men, Study Says

Article here. Excerpt:

'A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that women face more stress at work because they are better at keeping to deadlines than men. The study defines “time stress” as “having too many things to do and not enough time to do them.” According to the study, women experience disproportionately higher time stress than men.
On an individual level: if a deadline is flexible and you might need more time, ask for it. Managers should check in regularly with stressed out team members to ask if a deadline extension would help, where possible.

On a company level: Organizations can implement formal policies to facilitate deadline extension requests, making it easier for employees to ask for more time to get work done.'
