As per a report by CPSU, women enjoy the work which they do in corporate and value their right to work, but it is being increasingly witnessed, that the job pressure and associated stress takes a toll on their health (Pocock, 2005). Stressors include – job cuts, budget cuts and the chronic understaffing etc (CPSU, 2017). This acts as the backdrop for the research paper on business, as the purpose of this paper is to identify and explore the concept of job pressure faced by women in Australia’s workforce.
