Century has beencalled the age of Anxiety and Stress.Thus It is not Surprising that interest in Stress has been rising with the Advancement of presentcentury. In the past, men were mainly concerned for their Physical Survival. They worried about thesources of their next Meal , Shelter & about not being Killed today. The modern man worriesabout the problems of a more psychosocial Nature. But all individual do not undergo the experienceof Stress even if they undertake Tension producing activities.Stress is becoming an increasingly global phenomenon affecting all countries , all professions andall categories of workers , families and society in general.Stress takes heavy toll of the person’s health and his capacity to adjust with others. The modernlife is full of stressors. The job life contains many stressors. Some of the stressors are intrinsic tothe job life; some relate to the structure of the job and so on. There are stressors in the personaland the social life of an individual. In a nut shell stress is ubiquitous these days.Stress has become chronic. As a result an individual faces many psychological as well as psychosomatic disorders. In the last few years’ evidence has accumulated from around the worldto show that the most common cause of destructive ill health is stress at work. Researchers havenot only built up evidence showing links between industrial stresses in general and ill health buthave even accumulated evidence showing that it is possible to link specific occupations withspecific types of stress induced disease. No one is immune. The man or women on the shop floor is just vulnerable as the man or women on the board of directors.It is these environmental changes that have made stress more pronounced.

Theconcept of Human Resource Management (HRM) is increasingly becoming a most vital functionof modern manager. Human Resources take active role in the modern economic scenario of any

Or else it can bethree. It is therefore necessary for the manager not only to understand human behavior properly but also to harness that understanding for the good of the organization.Managerial behavior includes not only the tasks of getting things done through others but alsowhy and how an individual behaves as he does. The specific questions that are from the subjectmatter of O.B. are related to individual, interpersonal, small group & inter group behavior,interaction of formal organization and the informal groups and organization as a system.In the modern competitive world of industry, trade finance, banking management andinformation technology where breath tacking changes are taking place, tension stalks everyindividual worth his adrenalin. Business and executive life becomes a never-ending race againsttime, technology and target; this rate race creates tension, which leads to dissatisfaction andfrustration. Eventually it manifests itself as psychological, Physiological stress and mental andemotional drain.Most of us are aware that employee stress is an increasing problem in organizations. We hear about postal workers killing co-worker and supervisors and then we learn job related tensionswere a major cause. Friends tells us they are stressed out from greater workloads and having towork longer hours because of downsizing at their company.We read surveys where employees complain about the stress created in trying to balance work and family responsibilities.Factor such as increasing competition corporate restructuring and Downsizings have compelledemployees to work longer hours to meet their deadlines. Organization also tries to generate moreoutput from fewer people in a shorter span of time. This trend pressurizes employees leading tonegative consequences such a burnout, high turnover, aggregation and stress. Work stress has become the latest corporate catchword and is a reason for genuine concern. Forbes magazine
