Over a quarter (28%) of employers believe stress levels within their workplace are high or very high.
This was despite over three quarters of employers (85%) believing they were responsible for promoting mental wellbeing.
The survey report by Buck Consultants at Xerox entitled Promoting Mental Wellbeing: Addressing Worker Stress and Psychosocial Risks, showed just 12% believed their workplace had low or very low stress levels.
Xerox head of health and productivity Anne-Marie Ayre said: "Employee wellness can be a challenging proposition for employers to think about, but it's encouraging to see so many acknowledging and addressing the importance of mental wellbeing in the workplace.
"A good employee programme will not only address the more obvious physical wellbeing, but tackle a wide range of issues, including the perhaps less obvious areas, such as mental health and financial wellbeing.
"The available wellness techniques and technologies continue to diversify, so businesses need to regularly review and update their programmes to keep employees happy, healthy and engaged."
