Abstract

A little more than 50 million Indians are reported to have the ill effects of depression, and another 38 million, reported anxiety. Despite this, it is crippling to see that India's emotional well-being is hardly examined. Besides, with a boom in the service industry, the working environment conditions assume a significant role in the Indian workforce's mental health. Our research explored job satisfaction with mental health, demographic factors, and organizational stressors of those working in the IT/ITeS industry. This study tries to address the gap in the research done on this theme for the Indian workforce. An advanced cross-sectional study was directed to around 220 people presently working or involved in the IT/ITeS industry utilizing approved instruments like the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire. An individual regression model was utilized to examine each satisfaction factor's relationship with the individual's mental health, demographic factors, and organizational stressors. Study discoveries demonstrate that a considerable association is present between job satisfaction and mental health; Age, sex, educational background, marital status did not have a strong association with job satisfaction. In contrast, individual yearly earnings and yearly household earnings had a positive association. This research even discovered that emotional stress is a strong attribute to all the facets of an individual’s job satisfaction. This study may cause to notice a superior comprehension of this relationship and assist organizations with structuring and executing employee assistance programs and different tools to enhance job satisfaction and reduce stress.
