Effects of Occupational Stress on Spiritual Quotient Among Executives

T. Kumar and S. Pragadeeswaran
Abstract—This paper is aimed at exploring the experiences of executives in coping with occupations related stress using spiritual quotient. The perceived status of occupational stress and spiritual quotient are evaluated based on the responses from employees in executive cadres in NLC. From the frequency distribution and chi-square analysis, it was found that occupational stress had less influenced among executives. From one-way ANOVA comparing the spiritual quotient among the executives with low, moderate and high level occupational stress; it was evident that the executives with low stress level tend to have high spiritual quotient level. Moreover, spiritual quotient tends to decline significantly when there was an increase in the level of stress among executives. The results of the correlation analysis strongly supported the negative relationship between spiritual quotient and occupational stress among executives at their workplace.
