You can help the world prevent anxiety

In 2021, people around the world are feeling more anxious than ever.

To help, we are conducting a global study to help scientists, psychologists, and coaches find ways to prevent it.

How your answers will help

Together (with your help!) we can achieve the following:

  • Advance the global understanding of anxiety
  • Identify key correlations that may help contribute to the prevention and/or treatment of anxiety
  • Help us create an evidence-based program that will help people manage or even overcome their anxiety very quickly and affordably.

Your benefits for participating:

It will take only 15-25 minutes to answer the two surveys, and in return you’ll get:

  1. Immediate access to free coaching programs with our AI Coach Marlee
  2. Exclusive first access to the findings
  3. A free pass to the coaching program we develop to help treat anxiety

More about the study

Following Michelle Duval’s research in 2013 and 2018 asking the question can entrepreneurial success be predicted, Fingerprint for Success (F4S) has been committed to researching performance, wellbeing and human development in the future of work.

With the increasing levels of generalised anxiety and anxiety at work since the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, F4S has asked the question, can anxiety at work be predicted?

Emerging research suggests that work anxiety is a critical issue for global workplaces:

  • Just in the United Kingdom alone, 17.9 million work days were lost to workplace anxiety and stress in 2019-2020 [1].
  • More than 75% of employees who experience workplace anxiety and stress say it carries over to their personal life, and this is more true of men (83%) than women (72%) [2].
  • 34% of employees have not spoken to their supervisor about work anxiety or stress for fear of reprisal (or reduction in responsibilities) from the boss. [3]
  • $300 billion: That’s the loss to the U.S. economy from workplace anxiety and stress, annually. [4]
  • 55% of employees are stressed during the day [5].
  • $11.3 billion: That’s the value of the market for work anxiety reduction and stress reduction approaches, growing at about 8.5% per year. [6]
  • Work-related office politics’ (37%) are the most common cause of work-related stress, followed by ‘lack of interdepartmental communications’ (34%), and ‘the work performance of others’ (33%). [7]

The primary goal of our research is to explore if anxiety can be predicted in the workplace.

The first survey will collect data on the individual’s experience of anxiety before and during the pandemic. The 2nd survey inside F4S is a critical part, as it measures 48 cognitive biases (attitudes and motivations). Our research goal is to look for correlations between the experience of anxiety and these 48 cognitive biases.

If anxiety at work can be predicted, this research will form the basis for global changes in the workplace and the development of personalised human and AI interventions that help individual sufferers of anxiety and workplace leaders prevent and overcome anxiety at work.
