Abstract

The research was focused to the work-related stress among lower and middle line management in Saudi ARAMCO. It explored the significance of various factors contributing to job-related stress on unit heads, division heads, and department heads. To determine the job stress level in Saudi ARAMCO, 900 respondents were approached via online questionnaire. The target population included all Saudi ARAMCO employees holding positions as unit heads, division heads, and department heads. Only 392 employees responded to the questionnaire. A quantitative analysis was conducted using Variance, t-test, and multiple regressions as statistical analysis tool. The results support the hypothesis that there exists a relationship between job stress and three independent variables; organizational structure, managerial role and job satisfaction. The research study has revealed that managerial role, organizational structure and job satisfaction are contributors to employees’ work stress. Lower and middle line management should be satisfied, fully engaged in decision making, well familiar with managerial role and adherent to the published rules and guidelines. The top three stressors for unit heads include workload, centralization and job satisfaction. For division heads, they include workload, business role and job satisfaction, whereas they encompass workload, formalization and job satisfaction for the department heads. The correlation and the regression analysis results indicate that work stress at management level has a positive relationship with managerial role in terms of business role and workload. The research supported the conceptual development of work stress and organizational structure. The results revealed that centralization and decision-making greatly increase work stress if they are not properly handled.
