Introduction: These days, there is a consensus that emotional intelligence plays an important role in the success of individuals in different areas of life. Persons with higher emotional intelligence had lower stress in dealing with demands and pressures in the workplace. The purpose of this study was to use artificial neural network to predict job stress and to compare the performance of this model with the multivariate regression model.
Material and Methods: In order to do that, 892 participants were selected randomly in different job categories. Then, 15 dimensions of Bar-On questionnaire, 10 job categories, age and education were considered as input variables and 7 dimensions of health and safety executive HSE were determined as output variables in models.
Results: The results revealed that an artificial neural network with hyperbolic tangent and sigmoid transfer functions respectively in hidden and output layers with 375 hidden neurons had significantly better performance than multivariate regression. So that, correlation of predicted values and job stress were only between 0.192-0.364 in regression model, but neural network had at least correlation 0.527 in all dimensions of job stress.
Conclusion: In predicting job stress using emotional intelligence, artificial neural network method was much better than multivariate regression model.
