As part of the ongoing psychological and sociological investigation with respect to wellbeing in the workplace and stress management, exploring the combination of the variables of resilience, emotional intelligence and perfectionism adds a different perspective to our understanding of wellbeing on the job. Clarifying predictors of occupational stress and identifying correlates of resilience to stress are instrumental as bases for increasing personal and organizational well-being and reducing costs. This study surveyed 80 employees in an Australian workforce sample via convenience and snowball sampling, using the Occupational Stress Inventory Revised, the Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale, the Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire, and the Stress Resilience scale from the Apollo Profile. Results showed that lower scores on the Emotional Intelligence (EI) trait independently accounted for 11% of perceived stress in Occupational Role and 10% in Personal Resources.
