Abstract

Organizations are consistently looking ways to reduce occupational stress to improve the productivity of their employees. It is matter of great interest for them to find out potential causes of occupational stress. Mobbing is relatively new concept for behavioral scientists, which illustrates in the form of unfriendly behavior of employee at workplace. The current study finds out different causes of Mobbing and their relationship with mobbing behavior, stress and employee behavior at workplace. The study uses exploratory factor analysis to identify causes of the mobbing and structural equation modeling to test relationship between constructs. A convenient sample of 450 employees from Higher Education Institutions of Pakistan (Sindh, Punjab, Baluchistan and Khyber Pakhtoonkhawa province) was taken for empirical investigation. The empirical findings reveal that mobbing has a positive relationship with stress and leads to negative employee behavior at workplace.
