Abstract


Long-term productivity of a company relies on its diligent human resources. But the diligence beyond a limit pressurises the performer. So, strainful careers though lucrative are not without their negative outcomes such as, unpleasant state of mind, physical and emotional imbalance and threat to the well being of the performers. Hence, an analysis has been made in this paper to identify the role stress [1] and the sources/causes of the same among employees working in the IT companies in Bangalore city. The study has divulged the fact that the role stress [1] acquainted by the employees is not identical but diverse, which affirms the findings of Srivastav [1].
