Shortly, organizational policies, the structure and the climate of the organization, physical conditions and process are the basic factors of stress in the organization (Luthans, 1994).
In addition, cultural and geographical factors such as climate and religion may shape factors of stress. Stress in working people results in various feelings such as worry, fear and depression.

There were significant differences in the work values of the Adventist secondary school teachers in Luzon by gender, civil status, type of college graduated from, church attendance, and religious beliefs and practices.
