Abstract

This article endeavors to study the various factors of stress relation to late sitting at workplace among different commercial bankers in Lahore and highlight the findings by performing statistical techniques like regression and correlation to gauge level of significance for the factor. Job Stress usually relates to the emotional responses which cause mental headache and at times lead towards other disease causation. This primary study serves as basis for finding causes that lead toward job stress among employees and assesses primary factors behind late sittings at work. Satisfied employees are more likely to be friendly and responsive which not only attracts customers but also help in achieving the common goals set by the organization. The data used for this study has been collected through convenient random sampling of 100 subjects from commercial banks of Lahore, Pakistan. Short unstructured interviews were taken to create an understanding with the subjects about the research purpose and then the instrument was used for data collection. Several options have been proposed to the management personnel for considering possible interventions to control and reduce the stress level in the banking industry through reward based incentives, appreciation of employees, and other motivating factors such training through H.D personnel and practitioners, etc.
