Abstract

An empirical study on rail engine drivers of Indian Railways was conducted to determine the relationship between their role efficacy and role stress. The study revealed role efficacy and role stress to be negatively related. The respondents were found to be suffering from the feeling of role overload, resource inadequacy and personal inadequacy. Education was found positively related with role stress and negatively with role efficacy. Advancement in experience was found to enhance probability of stress as also to have differential impact on drivers. The study emphasized the need for conducting role efficacy and role stress labs for the workers (drivers) if the Indian Railways want to reduce stress in the jobs of the drivers and want to increase their performance effectiveness.
