Emotional capital is defined as individual-specific emotional competencies that can increase social, economic and personal performance, including emotional intelligence. It is thought that the stress variable affecting both social and work life of the individual is related to emotional capital. It has been studied within the scope of the research that the perception of stress that can affect business outputs and employee performance can be reduced by increasing emotional capital. In this study, the relationship between emotional capital and its sub-dimensions and perceived stress was examined. The "Emotional Capital Scale" developed by Newman, Purse, Smith and Broderick (2015) and adapted into Turkish by Ay (2018) was used to measure the emotional capital of employees. The "Perceived Stress Scale" developed by Cohen, Kamarck and Mermelstein (1983) and adapted into Turkish by Eskin, Harlak, Demirk?ran ve Dereboy (2013) was used to measure the perceived stress levels of employees. A questionnaire was applied to 450 employees determined according to the quota sampling method. As a result of the research, it has been determined that emotional capital has a significant negative effect on perceived stress.
