Abstract: To survive and excel in the new economy, the HRD climate is a matter of serious concern in Indian public sector organisations. The present study followed a 2x2 factorial design of research. The two factors were types of organisation (Old/New) and role positions in the organisational hierarchy (executive/non-executive). The sample consists of 800 employees from two public sector organisations. The objectives were to discover the differences, if any, between the sub groups with regard to organisational role stress (ORS) and perception of quality of work life (QWL). It also aimed to ascertain the relative importance of QWL variables in explaining ORS. The findings reveal that there are significant differences between the executives of the old and new public sector organisations on a number of ORS as well as QWL dimensions. Based on the findings, HR solutions have been suggested.
