work under minimal stress.  However, organizations are designing their job roles to get that extra 
punch from the human resources; and those who capable of handling such complexities will be 
rewarded.  As  such,  this  study  was  carried  out  in  the  Northern  region  of  Sri  Lanka,  with  the

organizational and individual factors and their relationships over performance.
