Abstract: Stress can happen to all of us even when we are awake or asleep. Stress can be experienced at night when we try to sleep or having a nightmare, in the traffic on the way home, or even at work. Stress is related between the employee and the employer as the performance of the employee is affected by the stress level which intern affects the company’s productivity. Therefore, this study aimed to examine the occurrence of stress among staff and the individual factors that contribute to stress. The sample of 50 respondents was randomly selected among staff in University A. The data of this study had been evaluated descriptively using SPSS version 2.0. The descriptive analysis was done on six sub domains, i.e personal problem, lack of personal appreciation, personal financial, work environment, personal support, and personal beliefs. The results showed that the personal problem has a higher magnitude of stress compared to other sub domains which is like personal finance, health problems, personal conflict, and unstable emotional controls have an influence on the personal problems that contribute to stress. The dual approaches involving both supervisors and co-workers are recommended in alleviating individual stress in their own workplace. Therefore stress management is vital for both. A creative and energetic working environment can be a mechanism for employee feel happy and belonging.
