Work stress has been a serious issue for a long time, and has now augmented as a result of the impact of COVID-19. Employees started facing problems in visiting their worksites, thus increasing their work load. They had to work from home to complete work on time. This is quite common in employees in the private sectors in various fields. The paper focusses on developing a detailed knowledge of stress problems and the level of stress faced by identified private sector employees during the pandemic; the paper also evaluates stress management techniques and strategies adopted to cope up with the situation. The study pools data from private sector employees working from home for evaluating the effectiveness, based on a comparative study on working from home and working on-site, as the former is considered to be the new normal. The study also identifies various stress factors (stressors) that are a major source of creating stress among employees in these private sectors and exemplifies the impact of stress on work performance and productivity of workers.
