Burnout Among Greek Sport Centre Employees



The purpose of this study was to assess the presence of burnout and its relationship with demographic variables in Greek sport centre employees. The sample consisted of 116 employees from national sport centres in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece. The Maslach Burnout Inventory was used to measure burnout. Findings suggest that the burnout levels reported by the present sample were relatively low, but were accompanied by a low level of self-reported personal achievement. Findings in this study show no relationship between burnout and employees' gender or age. Employees who have 11-20 years work experience and who work shift work reported higher levels of depersonalisation. It is noted that findings in this study differ somewhat from findings with samples in other countries. It is suggested that future work should examine the effects of culture and work context on burnout.
