Abstract

Work plays a central role in the lives of many people, and thus the impact of occupational stress is an important issue both for individual employees or professionals and the organizations in which they work. Stress experienced at work can have adverse outcomes for the well-being of individuals and organization as whole. Stressors have a major influence upon mood, our sense of well-being, behaviour, and health. The present study focuses on measuring the effect of physical, psychological and behavioural stress outcome on job performance of women doctors. Primary data were collected for the study from 231 women doctors working at various government hospitals and private hospitals in Coimbatore through a structured questionnaire. Hierarchical regression analysis was used to analyse the effect of stress outcomes on job performance of women doctors. The study found that psychological and behavioural stress outcomes have a significant direct effect on the job performance, whereas physical stress outcome does not have a direct effect but it has an indirect effect through psychological and behavioural stress outcomes on women doctors’ performance.
