Abstract: Workplace stress is on the rise as a result of a variety of internal and external variables. Nowadays, whether one is in a higher or lower position, one will be under a lot of stress. These types of job stress can be either positive (viewed as an opportunity) or negative (viewed as a threat as it effects physical and mental health). Poor mental health can lead to employee burnout, which has a significant impact on their capacity to contribute meaningfully in both their personal and professional life. Teaching is one such profession where now-a-days high amount of stress is noticed. Not just delivery of lecture but also students' continuous evaluation, research work and other works at workplace are causing stress among the faculties. Hence, this study is an attempt to understand the reasons causing stress among teaching fraternity at their workplace and the consequences of the same on their job performance.
