Abstract

Seventy-two employees working in an engineering firm completed a series of surveys assessing their level of job burnout, number of recent stressful life and work events experienced, level or aerobic fitness, and the degree to which each was overweight. A significant and positive relationship was found between the number of stressful work events experienced and job burnout. Multiple regression analysis showed that the number of stressful work events experienced, level of aerobic fitness, and percentage of pounds overweight jointly and significantly contributed to the relationship with job burnout. A discussion of these results and their implications for future research is included.
