Work culture and family support has the least priority in contributing to jobs stress, because work culture is measured through data where professionals are visiting foreign countries and having stress due to new environment and culture, where most of the workers have not reported any foreign experience. Similarly, family support is not found as stressor because 75% respondents are unmarried and 76% are under the age of 28 years.

4.4Correlation Analysis

The correlation matrix reveals that the highest correlation is found in ‘workload’ and ‘work family interaction’ i.e. .624, and ‘client interaction’ and ‘work overload’ are also highly correlated. Hence, this suggests that staff interacting with clients have multiple roles in the organizations and this mounts stress among the professionals at senior positions. On the other hand, there is weak correlation between fear of obsolescence with work culture and workload. Similarly, there is an obvious weak correlation of client interaction with family support. One factor ‘role overload’ has very high correlation with almost all other factors. Hence, this seems to be a greater source of stress or at least the cause of creating stress through other sources as well.
