The past decade has witnessed a global and national surge in concerns surrounding work stress and its detrimental effect on organizational well-being. This trend is unsurprising considering the centrality of work in modern society, the increasing amount of time people dedicate to their jobs, and the ongoing transformations that are fundamentally altering the nature of work itself. Research suggests a clear link between repetitive tasks and dehumanizing work environments, such as those found on traditional assembly lines, and a decline in physical health. Stress can also stem from feelings of isolation or conflict within the workplace. This conflict can arise from disagreements with colleagues, or even more serious issues like harassment or discrimination. To gain a deeper understanding of this phenomenon, a pilot study was conducted within multinational IT companies located in Telangana, India. The study employed a simple random sampling technique to gather data from a sample size of 100 IT employees. A structured questionnaire was utilized to collect data from the sample population. The results revealed a key demographic trend: the majority of the surveyed employees belonged to the 20-25 year old age group. Furthermore, the study indicated that roughly two-thirds of these IT professionals fell within the monthly income bracket of Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000. Interestingly, the data also showed that the majority of the surveyed employees were single. In terms of experience, one-third of the IT professionals had been working in the industry for 1-2 years. The study also aimed to identify the key factors contributing to work stress among these IT employees. The findings highlighted several prominent stressors, including Inadequate Salary , Overtime, Time Pressure , Workload , Insufficient Holidays , Night Shifts.
