Urbanization, industrialization, competition, modernization and increasing scale of operations in the society are causing increasing stresses. People notice stress when they cannot meet up to the environmental expectations and feel a character within themselves. Consistently increasing rate of psychosomatic and psychological disorders and feeling of prevention and dissatisfaction with life in general reflect the high stress being experienced by the people in the present day world. During last two-decade frequency, strictness and span of psycho-social stress have extremely increased. The basic reason being the extremely changed physical and socio-cultural environment of the fashionable society and lifestyle of people. People’s life in modern societies has become more demanding, complicated, mechanical and dependent, and running by the clock. Ever increasing need and aspirations, hard competition, pressures of meeting deadlines and uncertainty of future and weakened social support system have made the life of majority of people highly stressful in modern societies. The term stress has been derived from the Latin word stringer which means to draw tight. The term used to refer to hardship, strain, adversity or affliction. It was used in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to denote force, pressure, strain, or strong efforts with reference to an object or person. Various terms have been synonymously used with stress, viz., anxiety, frustration, conflict, pressure, strain and the like.Theoretical Background of Stress Management:Occupational stress is stress involving work related. It occurs when people have responsibilities and demands at work with which they cannot handle, for a variety of reasons. It occurs when there is a mismatch between job expectations and reality. Occupational stress is related to the job place. Stress is a characteristic factor in any type of vocation or career. At its best, the presence of stress can be a motivator that urges the individual to strive for excellence. However, excess stress can lead to a lack of productivity, a loss of confidence, and the ability to perform routine tasks.Classification of stress:There are four type of stress that occur: Eustress, distress, under stress and over stress.Eustress is a positive form of stress. This is a motivating type of stress to enable someone to complete a job.Distress is a bad type of stress that affects people through fear, prevention and sometimes anger.Under stress occurs when someone is not experience positive stress and it can lead to more problems and products bourdon and hopelessness.Over stress is the outcome of stress and occurs when someone is being pushed too hard to meet deadlines.Hyper stress:When a person is pushed beyond what he or she can handle, they are supposed to be experiencing hyper stress situation. Hyper stress results from being overloaded or overworked. It’s like being stressed out. When someone is hyper stressed, even little things can trigger a strong emotional response. People who are most likely to suffer from hyper stress may be working mothers who have a multi-task, juggling between work and family constraints or may be people under constant financial strains or people working in fast pace environment and the like.Hypo stress:Hypo stress stands in direct opposite to hyper stress. This is because hypo stress is one of those types of stress experienced by person who is constantly bored. Someone in an unchallenging job, such as a factory worker performing the same task over and over will often experience hypo stress. The effect of hypo stress is feelings of restlessness and a lack of inspirationEffect of Stress:Excessive stress proves to be harmful for an individual. It ultimately leads to compromised health and loss of productivity. Absenteeism, shirking work responsibilities, arriving late, leaving early, etc., loss of productivity, increase in employee turnover, more of error prone work, memory loss, etc., cribbing, various psychological and psychometric problems, over reacting, arguing, getting irritated, frustration, suicides, deteriorating health, more of accidents, etc., eating disorders, excessive smoking and drinking, insomnias, depression, improper work, delay in completion of job etc. are the outcomes of stress. Stress experienced by one employee can affect the security of other employees also. Productivity is directly related with the health of an employee. Healthy an employee, higher the productivity and vice-versa. Workplace stress has a significant impact on team performance, employees wellbeing and overall performance of an organization.Stress Management Programmes: Banks are amongst the top ten stressed workplaces in India. To increase the productivity and efficiency of the banks, banks have come forward with a number of solutions. Banks are employing Human Resource practitioners to solve these issues. Human Resource Department has become an integral part of Bank. Human Resource Practitioners are being involved in planning decisions. Banks are implementing various strategies at all the levels so that workplace stress can be eliminated.Sources of Occupational Stress:Though occupational stress initially arises from fundamental factors of job and its psycho-physical environment, these factors are not naturally stressors. In fact, personal characteristics of the employee and his cognitive appraisal of the job factors in the framework of his capacity and resources determine the extent of stress he would experience from a job factor or situation. However, some factors like job insecurity, work overload, demotion, loss of job, extreme heat or cold etc. are likely to cause stress to the majority of employees. The various sources of stress can be classified into four broad categories environmental, organizational, group and individual. Causes of Stress:Job stress results from various interactions of the worker and the environment of the work they perform their duties, location, gender, environment, and many other factors contribute to the build-up of stress. Job stress results from the interaction of the worker and the conditions of work. Views differ on the importance of worker characteristics versus workingconditions as the primary cause of job stress. The differing viewpoints suggest different ways to prevent stress at work. Differences in individual characteristics such as personality and coping skills can be very important in predicting whether certain job conditions will result in stress. In other words, what is stressful for one person may not be a problem for someone else. This viewpoint underlies prevention strategies that focus on workers and ways to help them cope with demanding job conditions. In general, occupational stress is caused by a mismatch between perceived effort and perceived reward, and a sense of low control in a job with high demands. Low social support at work and job insecurity can also increase occupational stress. Psychosocial stressors are a major cause of occupational stress.Occupational Group:Lower occupational groups are at higher risk of work-related ill health than higher occupational groups. This is in part due to adverse work and employment conditions. Furthermore, such conditions have greater effects on ill-health to those in lower socio-economic positions. Other Sources of Occupational StressMcGrath has suggested the following six sources of occupational stressTask-based stress (difficulty, ambiguity, load, and the like)Role-based stress (conflict, ambiguity, load, and the like)Stress intrinsic to behaviour setting (e.g., effect of crowding or under manning and the like)Stress arising from the physical environment itself (e.g., extreme hot/cold, hostile forces and the like)Stress arising from social environment in sense of interpersonal relations (e.g., interpersonal disagreement, privacy, isolation, and the like)stress within the person system which the focal person brings with him to the situation (e.g., anxiety, perceptual style, motivation, experience and the like)Cooper and Marshall have described following seven categories of the sources of managerial stressFactors intrinsic to the job Work overload under load, poor physical working conditions, time pressure, having too many decisions to make.Career development over promotion, under promotion, lack of job security, fear of redundancy, thwarted ambition.Role in the organization Role ambiguity, role conflict, responsibility for people.Relationship at work Poor relations with boss, colleagues and subordinates, lack of trust and supportiveness, difficulties in delegating responsibilities.Organizational structure and climate Lack of effective consultation, restrictions on behaviour, poor communication, no sense of belonging and little or no participation in decision making.Extra-organizational sources Family problems, conflict of personal belief with that of company, conflict of company with family demands, marriage patterns, relocation and mobility. Characteristics of the individual Type A personality, extremes of competitiveness, striving for achievement, impatience, haste, hyper alertness, low self-esteem, lack of ability to cope or adapt to stress situation and the like. Srivastava and Singh identified twelve factors which cause occupational stress such as role overload, role ambiguity, role conflict, group pressures, low profitability, under participation, low status, responsibility for people, intrinsic impoverishment, strenuous working conditions, poor relations and powerlessness.Working conditions:Although the importance of individual differences cannot be ignored, scientific evidence suggests that certain working conditions are stressful to most people. Such evidence argues for a greater emphasis on working conditions as the key source of job stress, and for job redesign as a primary prevention strategy. Large surveys of working conditions, including conditions recognized as risk factors for job stress, were conducted in member states of the European Union in 1990, 1995, and 2000. Results showed a time trend suggesting an increase in work intensity. In 1990, the percentage of workers reporting that they worked at high speeds at least one-quarter of their working time was 48%, increasing to 54% in 1995 and to 56% in 2000. Similarly, 50% of workers reported they work against tight deadlines at least one-fourth of their working time in 1990, increasing to 56% in 1995 and 60% in 2000. However, no change was noted from the period 1995 to 2000 (data not collected in 1990) in the percentage of workers reporting sufficient time to complete tasks.Workload:In an occupational setting, dealing with workload can be stressful and serve as a stressor for employees. There are three aspects of workload that can be stressful. Quantitative workload or overload Having more work to do than can be accomplished comfortably.Qualitative workload:Having work that is too difficult.Underload:Having work that fails to use a worker’s skills and abilities. Workload has been linked to a number of strains, including anxiety, physiological reactions such as cortisol, fatigue, backache, headache, and gastrointestinal problems. Workload as a work demand is a major component of the Demand- Control Model of Stress. This model suggests that jobs with high demands can be stressful, especially when the individual has low control over the job.In other words, control serves as a buffer or protective factor when demands or workload is high. This model was expanded into the Demand, Control and Support Model that suggests that the combination of high control and high social support at work buffers the effects of high demands. As a work demand, workload is also relevant to the job demands and resources model of stress that suggests that jobs are stressful when demands (e.g., workload) exceed the individual’s resources to deal with them.Workplace Conflict:Interpersonal conflict among people at work has been shown to be one of the most frequently noted stressors for employees. Conflict has been noted to be an indicator of the broader concept of workplace harassment. It relates to other stressors that might co-occur, such as role conflict, role ambiguity, and workload. It also relates to strains such as anxiety, depression, physical symptoms, and low levels of job satisfaction.Techniques for Managing the Stress:High demand levels load the person with extra effort and work. A new time schedule is worked up, and until the period of abnormally high, personal demand has passed, the normal frequency and duration of former schedules is limited. Many techniques cope with the stresses life brings. Some of the following ways induce a lower than usual stress level, 104 temporarily, to compensate the biological tissues involved; others face the stressor at a higher level of abstraction.Autogenic trainingSocial activityCognitive therapyConflict resolutionCranial release techniqueGetting a hobbyMeditationMindfulness (psychology)Music as a coping strategyDeep breathingYoga NidraNootropicsReading novelsPrayerRelaxation techniquesArtistic expressionFractional relaxationHumourPhysical exerciseProgressive relaxationSpasSomatic trainingSpending time in natureStress ballsNatural medicineClinically validated alternative treatmentsTime managementPlanning and decision makingListening to certain types of relaxing musicSpending quality time with pets2.2 LITERATURE REVIEW:Literature review which covers way for an understanding of the areas of research which is already undertaken on the potential areas which are yet to be covered. In this way an attempt has made to a brief survey of the work already undertaken on the field of stress management and employee performance in banking sector. Mrs. Caral Lopes, Ms. Dhara Kachalia, (2017) they have conducted a study in private and public banks. They have shown that the technological growth has revolutionized the way banking sector works and the competition is globalised now way days because of the economic condition. The level of stress faced by the employees in banking sector is also growing rapidly. The study found that there is a significant relationship between type of the banks, age, gender and education, job, role, interpersonal relationship and Impact of occupational stress. So the banking sector employee should adopt new coping strategies for maintaining good physical and mental condition to improve productivity. B. kishori ; B. vinothini (2016) the authors have found that productivity of the work force is decisive factor for the success of an organization is concerned. In an age of highly dynamic and competitive world, an employee is exposed to all kinds of stressors that can affect them on all realms of life. The research intended to study the impact of occupational stress on Nationalized Bank employees. Priyanka Das1, Alok Kumar Srivastav (2015) they have identified that banks must manage people at work to improve physical work environment, If the organizations enhance the psychological well-being and health of the employees, the organizational revenue will increase and there will be employee retention as well. Because of “A Healthy Employee is a Productive Employee”. they concluded that the level of stress among the select public sector banks are found to be limited and if the necessary action taken by the management that will help to relieve the stress of the employees and also help to impact more productive employees that will help the banks to achieve greater heights. Ementa, Christiana Ngozi (2015) the study looked into the bank secretaries’ perceived causes of stress, its effect on their performance and effective strategies for coping with stress. The study showed that bank secretaries consider most of the work functions as causes of stress in the workplace, and these stressors has great effect on their performance, and have considered a number of factors as effective strategies for coping with occupational stress. This study concluded that bank secretaries experience a lot of work stress as they carry out their administrative and clerical functions in the bank. The study further revealed that gender; work experience and marital status do not significantly affect respondents’ mean rating on causes of stress, effect of the stressors to performance and effective coping strategies. Since stress is unavoidable in work life, it is obvious that bank secretaries must go through a form of stress to accomplish office tasks, efforts towards effective management of stress is paramount. Dr. P. Kannan ;Suma.U (2015) in order to manage stress the organization has to encourage employee development and embark on training interventions for employees. Training specifically related to policies and policy implementation is a key priority. Stress in banking sector is mostly due to excess of work pressure and work life imbalance the organization should support and encourage taking up roles that help them to balance work and family. RADHA.G (2014), in the study entitled Occupational Stress among the bank Employees in Tivarurar District of Tamil Nadu, expresses the level of occupational stress among public sector bank employers. The result of the study reveals that the officers and clerical staff experience high level of stress and sub-staff face moderate occupational stress. This study defines that occupational stress to be harmful physical and emotional responses that occur when the requirements of the job do not match the capabilities resources, or needs of the workers.Dr. Vishal Samartha ;Dr. Mushtiary Begum, et al. (2014) the stress is unavoidable in any occupation and banking is no exception. This study found that factors such as performance pressure; inadequate planning at workplace, change to adaptability; family demands and lack of efficient manpower caused more stress among the bank employees. Enekwe, Chinedu Innocent ; Agu, Charles Ikechukwu, et al. (2014) they have conducted study based on the statistical calculation, male and female bankers not to differ significantly on their stress management technique. It can be concluded that stress management is not gender sensitive or gender- centric. This means that the problem of stress is both genders sensitive. Furthermore, section of a banker has a significant influence on stress management technique among bank employees in Nigeria banking industry. ANBAZHAGAN.A ET.AL (2013) Work Stress of Hotel Industry employees in Pondicherry have identified the causes of stress. The type of research is descriptive opinions are qualitative in nature. Most of the respondents have not cleared about their organizational goals and hence there have role conflict. They have found that unachievable deadline is one of the areas where the employee faces stress. Most of the employees feel that the organization is not utilizing their ability properly.SHUKLA HARISH ; GARG RACHITA (2013) have conducted a study on stress management among the employees of nationalised banks in Indore, observed that most of the employees fear with the point that lack quality in their work sets stress on them. The researchers have explained that this study has exploratory in nature and maximum number of employees in bank has remained in stress. The main causes of stress overloaded, non-achievement of their target of work, family problem, the order of their boss by sacrificing their important home function.Md. Hasebur Rahman ; Md. Kamruzzaman, et al. (2013) the commercial bank as one the occupational group functions under of high stress. The variables such as long working hour, workload, family sympathy, management pressure, mental depression, and job insecurity perceived stress stressors of commercial bank. Employees wellbeing psychologically and mentally depress if stress prolong over the period of time. Effective job design, healthy working environment, remuneration should be offered to employees to motivate in competitive jobs of commercial bank. Tatheer Yawar Ali ;Atif Hassan et al. (2013) the bankers are facing high stress in their job and the reasons for this is stress include long working hours, improper reward system, lack of job autonomy, organizational culture, role conflict etc. and the main reason is lack of management support to employees. They can notice a number of symptoms indicating high level stress. If these symptoms are not noticed in early stage, they can cause serious health problems among employees such as depression, heart problems, diabetes etc. A. Sharmila and J. Poornima (2012) in their study on “employee stress management in selected private banks in Salem” A majority of the employees face severe stress related ailments and a lot of psychological problems. The management must take initiatives in helping employees to overcome its disastrous effect. In an age of highly dynamic and competitive world, employees are exposed to all kinds of stressors that can affect them on all realms of life. The growing importance of interventional strategies is felt more at organizational level. Khurram Zafar Awan and Faisal Jamil (2012) in their research titled “A comparative analysis: Differences in overall job stress level of permanent employees in Private and Public sector banks. Some variables of public sector employees are more affected whereas for other variable of private sector is more affected, but overall public sector is found to be more stressful.PATHAK DEEPTI (2012) has examined the understanding between organizational stress, job satisfaction and Perceived Organizational Support in the study Role of perceived organizational support on stress-satisfaction relationship: An empirical study The result of the study shows that Perceived Organizational Support has moderated relationship between both. The study has done on a sample of 200 managers belonging to Private Sector Organizations of Delhi/NCR region. The result has showed that Organizational Role Stress has negatively related with job satisfaction. Dayo Akintayo (2012) found that working environment is significantly related to worker’s morale and also working environment is significantly correlated with perceived worker’s productivity. Dr. K. Chandrasekar (2011) found that environmental factors are conducive to work and he also found that factors that affect attitude of employees to work are- interpersonal relationships control over environment, shift, emotionalS. Katyal M. Jain and B. Dhanda (2011) “A Comparative Study of Job Stress and Type of Personality of Employees Working in Nationalized and Non-nationalized Banks” The employees have to face stress and strain at workplace which is responsible for higher neurotic symptoms among them like emotional instability, depressive mood, nervous breakdown, hyper reactivity, over anxiousness, etc. Nadeem Malik, (2011) the growing importance of interventional strategies is felt more at organizational level. This research intended to study the impact of occupational stress on public and private Bank employees. Alina Hy (2010) the surveys show that there is no correlation between the demographic characteristics the level of satisfaction. Bashi.usman et.al (2010) they have analysed the relationship between job stress and job performance. The result has indicated that job stress has negatively correlated with job performance and the researchers find out that job stress significantly reduce the performance of employees. The stress in work environment reduces the intention of employees to perform better in jobs. It can be concluded that stress management is not gender sensitive or gender- centric.RESEARCH DESIGN3.1 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM:Stress management are tools, procedures and methods that allows us to take control of problems and make sure that don’t affect the daily routine.Problem that leads to stress that are specific in nature have different stress management techniques that can be applied to keep in balance and co-ordination.Beyond a certain point, stress stops being helpful and starts causing major damage to health, mood, productivity, relationships and quality of life.3.2 NEED FOR THE STUDY:Improper recognition of work done by employee in the BCC bankNon availability support from the superiors Bank employees should not be affect by the work environmentTo reduce Communication gap between the employees and managersStress has become in today work life.

Once when all the suggestion is taken into account the employee will be more satisfied person at their work.CONCLUSION:Stress is something that happens in our daily lives and is usually associated with a particular event such as work, family or other responsibilities. There are many situations that we can’t control but there are ways to control how we deal with certain situations. Effective stress management is something that our lives can go a little more smoothly. Stress management is as simple as taking a walk. It was being proven that physical activities would improve a person’s mental health, help with depression, and relieve the side effects of stress. This makes a person’s heart rate increase and will be more likely to be affected by stress. It is vital that stress management techniques are implemented into our daily lives. Coping with stress is an individualized task and one method over another may not be superior. A person that is stressed takes so much away from his or her health and performance levels.Employees at bank are too much stressed with their job with heavy workload, so the employees expect some refreshing events to add up in their work place like entertainment, trips, tea breaks, intervals once in a while during lumps of work. Accordingly, the employees expect hike in their salary from their worth performance. But even then the employees are very co-operative and have a very good high regard and respect towards the bank’s image and its future.Finally, I would like to conclude by saying that this project worked has given immense knowledge about the functioning of government sectors. It’s a great advantage to have good insight about such bank before the end of the course. My suggestions are properly honoured and accepted by bank. This has satisfied me to a greater extent and at the same time I am motivated to carry out such projects in future which would enhance my career and the bank as well.BIBLIOGRAPHY:IJIRSTV2112133- A study on work stress among bank employees in state bank of India with reference to TiruchirappalliSushma Rani PhD scholar -Effects of job stress on employee retention: A study in context of Indian Industries Sharmila et al./Elixir Inter.
