The poll, for The Best You magazine, revealed only 17.6 per cent of men and women in the capital were content in the workplace, with many blaming their unhappiness on bad management and bullying.
The survey also revealed 29 per cent of women and 25 per cent of men admitted to suffering from depression, with most men declining to seek professional help.
Bernardo Moya, CEO of The Best You magazine said: “It’s shocking that so many Londoners are unhappy in the place of work and need help. After all, it’s where most people spend the majority of their waking hours.
“Men and women of all ages need to know that it is possible to make a change.”“It’s a common story that men don’t express their feelings as much as women and I am concerned by the number of men who say they are doing nothing about their depression.
“Whilst depression can affect any of us, giving people – men and women – the tools to deal with life’s knocks is part of what The Best You is about.’he said.
The findings will be discussed at The Best You Expo at the ExCel in London next month, which will include seminars and workshops, as well as inspirational talks by speakers including Sir Clive Woodward.
