Abstract
Job satisfaction and psychological capital contribute to workers’ psychological well-being and may decrease burnout levels in the work environment. The goal of the present study was to assess the relationship between job satisfaction, psychological capital, and burnout syndrome. One hundred and eleven workers participated in the study. The results yielded an inverse relationship between the predictor variables (job satisfaction and psychological capital), and the dependent variable (the burnout syndrome). According to the analyses, the predictor variables included explain a considerable amount of variance (24%). Furthermore, the model accounted for 35% of the variance when the emotional exhaustion dimension of burnout syndrome was analysed as the dependent variable (i. e., after excluding the other 2 dimensions of the syndrome). These results highlight the potential benefits of programs aimed at promoting job satisfaction and psychological capital in organizational contexts.
