Job involvement in simple terms refers to the commitment that a person shows to his job or work. An employee needs to have mental and physical healthiness along with optimum level of occupational stress to give his full worth to the work. In an organization, on one hand, there are family oriented persons with focus on welfare of their family members and on the other hand, there are individuals who are career concious and look for rewarding career keping in mind the stress factors on tight lease. Bray, Campbell and Grant (1974) identified two distinct patterns of life orientations: the one associated with career/job success was called enlarging style while the other, associated with less success, was called enfolding style. In this study 400 (140 females, 260 males) steel industry executive’s life-orientation, gender and occupational stress were empirically treated to explore their impact on their work involvement. Results of 2x2 ANOVA show significant interaction effect of life-orientation and gender on job-involvement F-77.3(P<.001), whereas life-orientation, sex and occupational stress in 2x2x3 ANOVA was not significant, F-2.66(P<.05). Results support reconceptualizing the major determinants of healthy work life in terms of various mental aspects.
