Abstract: Work is central to the modern lifestyle and most people spend long hours at work. Bank employees face tough times today, as they need to work round the clock in order to deal with the demand of customers and top management. In this process, they might feel miserable and dejected which leads to stress and which in turn paves way for poor performance. Therefore, it is important for employees to overpower stress, which has become a routine for the employees in banking and financial organisations. This study addresses specific workplace issues of bank employees related to their levels of stress and discusses pathogenesis of various problems related to levels of stress. The study will be helpful to draw future policies on the employee stress and work related perspectives and would serve as a data pool for future research.

Keywords: dimensions of stress; bank employees; stress in male bank employees; stress in female bank employees; stress management techniques.
