Questionnaires were completed by 87 managers from different industries. Regression analyses provide support to certain empirical support for some correlation between stress coping styles and the independent variables such as: demographic variables, occupational environment, and stressor episodes. It was found that in this exploratory study, the various determinants for both the stress coping styles and the level of occupational stress did shown meaningful pattern and foundation for further research in local context.
