The misconception that promoting fear among employees will produce better discipline and performances of the worker is now proved to be reciprocal since such fearful working environments lead to poor interpersonal skills that affect directly the confidence of the employee. Unhealthy work environments not only reduce the competitive advantage of the organization it grimly devastates staff mental health and physical performance. The employee is generally fearful of losing the job and bears the stress that affects the people skills of an individual.This study is aimed to determine factors about the fear that are affecting the self-confidence of the employees who are working at any particular organization. It is a qualitative study based on framework analysis which is concluded through structured interviews. Thirty employees randomly selected from five different industries (Pharmaceutical, Education, Telecommunication, Airlines, and Software houses) have been selected for this research. 50 % of the population is male and the rest female. Inclusion criteria included 8 working hours and direct reporting to the heads of the department. A job description that involves target or sales were excluded from the sample. It is observed that fear in employees and their thoughts in an organization has a major impact that is reflected in staff as psychologically revoke, depression and anxiety, demotivation and apathy, autocrat leaders, and distrust environment. All these factors affect the interpersonal skills of the employee, especially self-confidence leading to unhealthy human resource culture. It is concluded that there is a direct relationship between autocratic leadership and fright in employees of the organization that results in loss of buoyancy. Such organizations promote unwholesome human resource culture creating psychosocial problems in the workers.
