Abstract: Burnout is a unique type of stress syndrome, characterised by emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation and diminished personal accomplishment. Much of the research on burnout has been confined to the helping professions, such as nursing, education and social work. In contrast, not much research has been done on the non-helping professions especially executive or managerial groups. The present study consists of executives (N= I 09) working in a local transport company. The purpose of the study is to examine the relationship between burnout and organisational commitment. In addition, the factor structure of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) was analysed to determine whether burnout is a multidimensional or an unidimensional syndrome for this group of executives. Burnout and organisational commitment showed a strong positive relationship with each other. Factor analysis of the MBI revealed a multidimensional syndrome of burnout comprising the three components of emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation and diminished personal accomplishment. This study has important implications, for instance, high levels of burnout can negate the benefits derived from having highly committed employees. Leaving burnout unchecked can cause serious problems such as increased absenteeism, turnover and reduced levels of productivity.
