Keywords:Occupational Stress, Work Motivation, and Loco Pilots
AbstractThe current study was designed to examine the correlation between Work Motivation and Occupational Stress among Railway Loco Pilots with particular reference to Age and Experience. To assess work motivation, the WMQ (Work Motivation Questionnaire) by K. G. Agarwal was used while Occupational Stress was assessed through the OSI (Occupational Stress Index) questionnaire created by Dr. A. K. Srivastava and Dr. A. P Singh. The study’s sample was collected by the Random Sampling method. A sample of 500 Loco Pilots was selected from the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR). The gathered data were statistically examined using mean, S.D, and correlation techniques. The results of this analysis show that Occupational Stress and Work Motivation are significantly correlated. Regarding variable, age and experience it is established by the study that while age levels is not a determining factor of work motivation of the Loco Pilots, experience levels play a significant role in the determination of their work motivation.
