Stress is an unavoidable concept of life and work. It clearly describes the physical, emotional and mental wear and tear caused by the incongruence between the requirement of job and capabilities, needs and other resources to cope up with the job demands. Whatsoever, howsoever the situations are, hence it’s the responsibility of everyone to resolve it and create new ways of handling new situations at each life stage. For better understanding of these concepts, the researcher has carried out a Workplace Stress Survey in the cities of Chennai and Mangaluru, with respondents of three hundred college teachers approximately. Chennai, a metropolitan city and Mangaluru, a developing city on its own; really contributes towards the impact of stress on various employees. The purpose of the study is to ensure there is a higher impact of stress on teachers at college level, which is prominent in Chennai comparatively. For this study, a questionnaire was circulated among these respondents and calculations of stress levels were made on certain weights assigned to specific stress-factors.
