To test the hypothesis that will be proposed in this study, the model fit analysis technique used is SEM (Structural Equation Modeling) which is operated using the SMARTPLS 3.0 program. The results of the study prove that there is a positive and significant influence between Social Pressure, Communication Load, fear of being left behind on Perceived Stress. The results of this study are expected to be used as library materials and information in the development of science, especially in the field of human resource management and especially in developing theories in overcoming digital stress for both lecturers and other readers.
