Abstract: This research has two pronged aims. The first aim is to develop life Event Inventory after collection of stressful life events from 800 sample of professionals (N=700) and students (N=100). The Nepalese life stress Inventory was administered on 10.18% employees (N=250) sample from all (six) five star hotels. Systematic random sampling technique was used to represent the population universe of 2455. The sample (N=250) consisted of males (N=208) and females (N=42). Methods of study usedwere Standardized Questionnaire: Locus of Control Inventory (Rao, 1985), General Health Questionnaire (Goldberg and Williams, 1988), Life Satisfaction Scale (Warr, 1989), informal interview and participatory observation. The second aim is to compute analysis of variables, showed that married employees were less stressed, enjoyed good health and showed more satisfaction in life than unmarried. Married were found to be more internal than the unmarried. Married were high risk takers. Employees from terai were high internality oriented than the employees from Hill and Mountain. Urban employees showed high internality than the rural employees. Similarly Sino- Tibetan employees showed high internality. Female employees also showed high internality, good health andhigh life satisfaction. Further attempts were made to test hypotheses. The difference of stress score in males and females were not found significant (null hypothesis was retained). There was positive and significant relation between life satisfaction and locus of control. The difference of stress due to gender (biological) was not significant. Employees scoring high in internality showed high life satisfaction. The mean score of life events at hill region was greater than mean score of life events at mountain and terai. Pearson correlation between life satisfaction and general health was significant. Stress has negative effect on the well-being. In covariate analysis age has significant effect on life satisfaction, and religion has effect on health. The interaction effect of work experience and salary together has the significant relation to life satisfaction.
