Nearly three-quarters (72.9%) of the individuals surveyed said that they would look for a new job in order to secure a better work-life balance.
Of the respondents, 50.2% said that they had experienced financial difficulties, since the onset of COVID-19. While, four in 10 or 42.9% of employees said their mental health is worse than it was a year ago.
Meanwhile, 36.3% of those surveyed said that worrying about the health and wellbeing of friends and/or family members has caused them to experience poor mental health.
Additionally, 26% named worrying about the spread of coronavirus as their biggest concern.
Interestingly, these worries remain the same across all genders and age groups with the exception of workers aged 35-44, who felt that experiencing financial difficulties (54.5%) had the biggest impact on their mental health.
Founder and CEO of CV-Library, Lee Biggins, said: "The last seven months has been filled with a great amount of uncertainty and it's understandable that so many professionals feel their mental health is suffering. What's more, it's understandable that worrying about finding a new job is one of the biggest concerns for UK workers, as many individuals have been made redundant and employment opportunities have been scarce.
"It's only natural to feel anxious during such challenging times. And, while the UK job market may take some time to fully recover, it's important to remember that the situation is already improving. In fact, as time goes on, we're seeing more job postings being added to our site every week.
"The government has once again recommended that professionals should work from home where possible. While this may be good news for some, those who struggle to find a healthy work-life balance will be dreading the next few months. If you feel this way – don't panic.
"Start by identifying a clear working pattern with a well-defined break for lunch. This will force you to step away from work without feeling guilty. If possible, try to keep your work physically separate from your home life. Whether you do this by working in a different room, or by keeping your work laptop and documents out of sight in the evening, getting some separation is key."
