IT industry has become one of the fastest growing industries in India. Strong demand over the past few years has placed India among the fastest growing IT markets in Asia-Pacific region.

Any kind of a job has targets, and an employee becomes stressed when he or she is allotted with unachievable targets and are unable to manage a given situation.

Job stress can be defined as the harmful physical and emotional responses that occur when the requirements of the job do not match the capabilities, resources or needs of the worker. Job stress can lead to poor health and even injury.

The various types of stress are :

  • Eustress is a type of short-term stress that provides immediate strength. It is a positive stress that arises when motivation and inspiration are needed.
  • Distress, on the other hand, is a negative stress brought about by constant readjustments and alternatives in a routine. Distress creates feelings of discomfort and unfamiliarity
  • Hyper stress occurs when an individual is pushed beyond what he or she can handle. It results from being overloaded or overworked
  • Hypo stress occurs when an individual is bored or unchallenged. People who experience hypo stress are often restless.

Prolonged exposure to work stress may affect the autonomic nervous system and neuroendocrine activity directly, contributing to the development of the metabolic syndrome.
