Motivation of employees play a dual role, one it increases positive work-related outcomes second, it reduces level of stress, since motivated workforce conserve a healthy, competitive and congenial environment Thus, the study aimed to explore the hidden relationship of job stress, motivation and job performance in Higher Educational Institutions operating in Sindh, Pakistan.

Their job performance is not affected by the stress level at workplace. Moreover, the relationship between motivation and stress has been found negative, job stress and motivation factors are found significant to the performance of the faculty.
