The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the impact of the work related stress and job burnout & low level of motivation, which resulted in low performance of a faculty member at Private Universities and educational institutions in Pakistan. A survey research was employed in order to carry out this research. For this purpose, 82 respondents were taken from the Private Universities and educational institutions in Karachi City. A quantitative research method was used and a multiple regression model has been applied for the results. Results indicate that there is a meaningful impact of Job Stress & Burnout, which leads to an employee’s low level of motivation and, finally, it turns into the low performance of Private Universities and educational institutions. Taken alone, Stress & Burnout is an independent factor, which makes the faculty member demoralised and depressed and, consequently, the overall performance of teacher would be hampered and, in result, the performance of the institution will also be dejected. Moreover, as it is further concluded, due to Stress & Burnout, the employee will be tuned out into the depressive mood and it will express itself in the form of a low motivation level, which will also hamper the faculty member’s performance at private institutions & Universities. It is recommended on the basis of the of this research results that there should be a congenial, conducive and independent working environment created, thus providing the conditions for the eradication of the unnecessary pressures burden. Moreover, the Government should take necessary steps in order to ensure the Job security and fringe benefits for a teacher in private institutions and universities.
