The role of passion and support perceptions in changing burnout: a Johnson-Neyman approach

International Journal of Stress Management, 25(2), s. 163- 180. Doi: 10.1037/str0000057 - Fulltekst i vitenarkiv

This study explored the relationship between obsessive and harmonious passion for work and burnout, as well as the moderating roles of perceived supervisor support and perceived coworker support. A longitudinal, 3-wave study was conducted among 1,263 members of a large Norwegian workers’ union across a 10-month time span. Harmonious passion for work was related to a decrease in exhaustion and cynicism over time, whereas obsessive passion for work was stably and positively related to exhaustion and cynicism. Furthermore, we suggested that a situational contingency in the form of support perceptions may reduce the negative outcome of obsessive passion but found that this attenuation may depend on the level of the obsessive passion. By applying the Johnson-Neyman statistical technique, we showed that the level of obsessive passion is important in understanding when a supporting environment is actually helpful in protecting against burnout. We still recommend careful selection of coworkers who are genuinely caring and considerate of others, as well as facilitating good relationships at work. However, we also discuss how high levels of obsessive passion might prevent certain employees from gaining from the effects of coworker support

Air traffic controller burnout: Survey responses regarding job demands, job resources, and health

Aviation, Space and Environmental Medicine, 77, s. 422- 428.

Introduction: There are currently many changes taking place in the aviation system affecting the work of air traffic controllers (ATCOs), and thus it was considered important to assess work-related demands and stress responses among ATCOs. The purpose of this study was to assess the level of burnout among ATCOs compared with other professions; to examine the relationship between job demands, job resources, and burnout; and to examine if burnout could predict both work- and health-related outcomes. Method: The participants were 209 Norwegian ATCOs and data were collected using a questionnaire distributed to 500 ATCOs. The study was part of a national survey of both health care and non-health care professions. Results: ATCOs did not score high on burnout compared with the three comparisons groups (police, journalists, and building constructors); in fact, ATCOs scored significantly lower on exhaustion compared with journalists (Hedges g = 65) and building constructors (Hedges g = 63), and not significantly different from police officers. Both job demands and job resources were related to burnout; work conflict especially was an important predictor for all of the three burnout dimensions. Burnout predicted psychosomatic complaints (r(2) = 0.48), satisfaction with life (r(2) = 0.25), and other work outcomes. Discussion: The overall level of burnout was not high among ATCOs compared with other professions, which may be related to selection procedures for the profession. Burnout was related to important outcome variables such as psychosomatic complaints and attitudes toward work.
