... scatter plot in Figure II shows that job anxiety experienced by the respondents is negatively correlated with their attitude towards their management. But the scatter plot also reveals that the relationship is insignificant (r=-.14, p<.05; r crit =.14). The inference derived from this is that anxiety after at the workplace after a certain level does not influence the respondents' perception about their managers or organization. Even though the influence is negatively correlated, it being insignificant, any increase or decrease in job anxiety will have a minimal impact on their ...

The scatter plot in Figure III shows that the occupational stress experienced by the respondents is negatively correlated with their attitude towards their management. It also depicts that the relationship between the variables is significant (r=-.47, p<.05; r crit =.14). Workplace stress does strongly influence the perception of the employees about their management and shape their onjob attitude. One big fallout of high stress has been found to be job satisfaction (George & Zakaria, 2015). The relationship being negatively correlated and significant, any increase or decrease in occupational stress ...

[13] From this specific viewpoint, reward plays a vital role in current job content, which is influenced significantly by unfair or inadequate salaries, lack of esteem, poor promotion prospects, or job insecurity. [7] Consistent with the theoretical assumption of the ERI model, our study showed that ERI was more likely to explain burnout and poor sleep quality among IT workers. ...

Background: Work in informational technology (IT) professionals is highly competitive and stressful, leading to job stress. This can lead to burnout, effort-reward imbalance (ERI), and poor sleep quality. Materials and methods: The present study examined associations of ERI, burnout, and poor sleep quality among IT professionals using data from 200 software engineers (mean age of 29.3 ± 4 years, 32% women). ERI and overcommitment were assessed using Siegrist's "effort-reward" questionnaire. The Oldenburg Burnout Inventory (OLBI) was used to assess burnout and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) to assess sleep quality. Results: ERI, burnout and poor sleep quality were present in 72%, 60%, and 70%, respectively. Females had higher ERI, burnout, and poor sleep quality compared to males. ERI is significantly associated with burnout (r = 0.45, P < 0.01) and poor sleep quality (r = 0.31, P < 0.01). Linear regression to assess the ability of ERI to predict levels of burnout yielded a statistically significant (R 2 = 0.206, P < 0.01) indicating ERI to be a unique incremental predictor of burnout (b = 0.454, t = 7.16, P < 0.01). ERI tends to be a predictive factor of poor sleep quality with Odd's ratio = 3.5, 95%CI (1.81-6.73), P < 0.01. Conclusion: In summary, Intervention programs both at the individual and at the organization level have to be designed to combat ERI, burnout, and poor sleep quality among IT professionals.

This study was conducted to examine the marital status, role of gender and organizational ownership in occupational stress in the employees of different manufacturing industries. Occupational Role Questionnaire was used to collect the information from the participants. Sample was comprised of one twenty participants from POF Wah Cantt, Taxila and different industries of Haripur Hattar. Data was collected through purposive sampling technique and hypotheses were analyzed by using t test and Regression. Hypotheses of this study were supported. The findings shows that female employees significantly scored high as compared to their male counterparts. On occupational stress scores of married workers were signiϐicantly high as compared to unmarried workers. On occupational stress scores of private sector workers significantly high as compared to public sector workers. Marital status was the most prominent, gender was the secondary important, and organizational ownership was the third important predictor of occupational stress among the employees in the industrial units. The understanding of marital status, role of gender and organizational ownership in occupational stress in industries made this study valuable. Stress management programs in the workplace can be conducted for helping female employees to cope with occupational stress. Private organizations also needed to increase incentives so that they can get rid from occupational stress.
