Abstract: The study sought to investigate whether sex and managerial status have any effect on occupational stress and organizational commitment in the Ghanaian banking sector. Using a cross-sectional survey design, 327 participants were conveniently selected for the study. Reliable questionnaires were used to collect a heterogeneous sample for the study. The hypotheses were tested with Multivariate statistical test (MANOVA). The analysis showed that males differed significantly in organizational commitment than their female counterparts. However, no statistically significant sex and managerial status difference was found in occupational stress and organizational commitment. This means that, in terms of occupational stress, males did not differ significantly from their female counterparts. Similarly, managers did not differ significantly in their level of occupational stress from non-managers. Further, managers did not demonstrate significantly higher level of organizational commitment than non-managers. The implications of the findings on occupational stress and organizational commitment research have been discussed.
