Abstract

In every aspect of an individuals life, Stress is an integral part. Due to the growing competition at the workplace the stress level has also increased. At workplace, as in other areas stress can play a positive role by increasing alertness among staff and mobilizing their adaptive capabilities. Therefore, to some extent, a certain level of stress has the potential to actually contribute to organizational effectiveness. But stress can become counterproductive once the excessive levels of unresolved stress begin to affect the health and productivity of work force. In fact, occupational stress has been defined as a global epidemic by the United Nations International Labor Organization. The present research paper is an attempt to examine the sources and effects of work place stress among the Management and Technical faculty members of different academic institutions in Agra-Mathura region. For this purpose the data was collected by convenience random sampling of Management and Technical faculty members. The analysis has been done using different Statistical tools with the help of SPSS. The research suggests that there is no correlation between gender and the other demographic factors (age, designation, income, Change in personal habits etc). It was also found that most of the factors related to the measurement of stress level equally effect the stress level of technical and management faculty such as absenteeism due to stress and difficulty taking vacation/holiday/time etc. Keywords: Stress, Management and Technical Faculty.
