Apart from elaborating the concept of occupational stress, the research had two objectives: (1) to measure occupational stress levels among different categories of employees working in Croatian enterprises, and (2) to study and analyze stress in Croatia in relation to individual differences. The greatest level of stress is perceived by respondents with three or more children, older than 50 years of age, and employed in marketing, at middle levels or in procurement, while the lowest level of stress perceive employees younger than 30 years of age, employed in HR, finances and production, and parents of one child. As well, findings suggest that, although the cross-sectional design of the study does not allow for causal interpretation of relationships found, there is a connection between age, marital status, parenthood, number of children and hierarchical level, and the way stress is perceived, while gender, department and working hours are not connected to it.
