—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.
