It is through role that an individual interacts and gets integrated with the system. The study uses a descriptive research design. The instrument used for collecting data is 'Organizational Role Stress Scale' (ORS Scale). The ORS scale is a comprehensive tool to elicit data about the different role stressors afflicting a respondent. It covers a range of the stressors that may be experienced by an occupational group. The study finds the similar level of stress for male and female employees on the overall organizational role stress.
