Abstract

With the changes in the business world along with changes in the personal life, family type, education level giving rise to higher expectations from oneself; individual roles are also changing giving birth to higher levels of stress. In the past few decades employees have become more vulnerable to diseases caused by stress at workplace. There were times when an employee used to have fixed schedules of work along with fixed roles in organisation. But now changing roles and long work hours are common in every work place may it be academics or any bank. There is a general thought that education industry is not very stressful while when it comes to banking jobs the general perception is that it is very challenging as well as stressful. This study has been designed to check if there is statistically significant difference between the stress levels of academicians and bank employees of Rajkot City. A sample of 50 units from each stratum has been taken for research. Mean scores have been checked for the differences. The analysis shows that there is not any significant difference between the levels of stress of the two categories of employees.
