Gender Responses To Stress Outcomes
Gender differences have been highlighted by the researchers in discussing the stress outcomes. Stress studies consistently show that females report significantly higher levels of psychological and physical stress than their male counterparts. The literature has shown that rarely have there been any studies conducted which are able to look at the gender responses to stress outcomes among supporting staff. The main objective of this paper is to compare the stress outcomes experienced by male and female employees who are working as supporting staff. The population of this study is 1,056,410.6 million support staff and 1,668 were selected as the sample. The data for this research were obtained by administrating a Likert-scaled Malay language questionnaire. From the analysis, majority of them were female and have worked with the organizations for 3 – 5 years. T-test analysis was conducted and confirms that there is no significant difference in the stress outcomes experienced by male and female employees. It is argued that the nature of work as a supporting staff doesn’t shows any gender differences in psychological responses to a stressor
