Abstract

This study examined the dimensions of organisational stress. Data were gathered from 161 managers through  a questionnaire. These managers represented five different organisations. Seven dimensions of stress were  extracted through varimax rotated factor analysis. Experience of inequity, role overload, and inadequacy of role authority emerged as strong dimensions, whereas job difficulty and lack of group cohesiveness were weak  dimensions of stress. Public sector employees experience inequity and job difficulty with higher intensity while middle and lower level employees experience more stress due to lack of supervisory support.
