The Extent of Job Stress among Employees in Selected Social Occupations

Auther : Ali Askar , Ahmad A. Abdullah

The purpose of this study is to determine and compare the extent of job stress among employees in special education teaching, nursing, social work and the psychological service.

Factors such as experience, marital status, sex, and nationality were considered. A questionnaire was given to 353 individuals working in these occupations, and information was obtained on work load, role ambiguity, task routine, social support, participation in decision making, performance evaluation and job security.

The results indicate a general low level of stress, although the nurses showed a higher degree of stress compared to other occupations. There was also a higher degree of stress among married males, and employees with 5 to 9 years experience. Job insecurity was experienced by both nurses and teachers, and the nurses also complained of exhaustion. In view of the importance of the relationship between employees and organizations, this study can be considered a starting point for further investigation.
