Abstract

Studies have revealed that teaching is one of the stressful occupations worldwide. Competitive stature of globalized education market has been changing in a dynamic business environment. Private players are coming up rapidly to meet up the skills and knowledge gap being equipped with better physical infrastructure, corporate management structure and business intelligence system. In this context, an investigation is made on how do the educators involved in private management educational institutes experience work-stress with respect to few demographic and job factors. Survey for the study is conducted using a validated stress scale among the teachers and academic administrators of private educational institutes in West Bengal, India.  Results reveal that nearly one third of the respondents are exposed to high stress zone. Situation is alarming, not parlous though. ANOVA results show that age, experience and area of residence are most powerful endogenous factor in differentiating work-groups in respect to stress. Gender, income, job status and educational qualifications have comparatively lower influences. Interestingly, teachers and administrators do not differ themselves significantly so far work-related stress is concerned. Research findings will help the policy maker examining the existing pattern of work stress and its likely implications in designing institutional human resource policy and practices.
