In modern life stress is a common problem. The negative effects of stress affect individuals’health and performance. As a result, individuals have their own stress perceptions and they develop different kinds of strategies in order to manage stressful situations. A study of how
stressful job events and task interest are associated with quality of work life was conducted through interviews and questionnaire assessment of 37 members of the laboratories staff at Malaysian hospitals. Factors analyses of the nature of stress revealed five separable factors; one that accounted for the community, family problem, financial
problem, health problem, and that identified level of satisfaction with the work context is work allocation. As predicted by a five-factor model, the number of stressful work events correlated with dissatisfactions with the work context but not with satisfaction with the work itself. Level of task interest was associated with higher ratings of satisfaction with the work itself and was uncorrelated with level of work context satisfaction.
