ABSTRACT

The present study was conducted to investigate the gender difference in job stress, social anxiety and social skills between male and female IT executives. A total sample of 200 I.T. executives (100 males and 100 females) was taken from the private I.T. companies of Gurgaon and Faridabad. Job Stress Survey (Spielberger and Vagg, 1999), Social Skills Scale (Albert, 2005) and Social Anxiety Scale (Liebowitz, 2004) were administered to measure these variables. Data was analyzed by using t-test. Results clearly revealed the significant gender differences in the above measures. Job stress and social anxiety were found high in males while females had better social skills than male IT executives.
