Analysis of the professional burnout syndrome in selected groups

Dorota Lasota, Krzysztof Goniewicz, Mariusz Goniewicz, Robert Czerski


The research was to analyze representations of burnout syndrome in four groups of professionals, including sex, age and susceptibility to stressful factors. The research was conducted out among: teachers, banks’ employees, building administration employees, employees of renovation and construction companies. The highest rate of stress was observed among teachers and bank employees, but connected to the national sector, because of increased contact with multitudinous people. The stressful factors that were encountered: burden of work, conflicts with co-workers and superiors. Low income, fear from being judged were predominant causes in cases of teachers and bank employees; family issues were a stressful factor in a teacher’s profession. The main components of burnout syndrome were distinguished among teachers and employees of renovation and construction companies between the age of 31-40 and bank employees and building administration employees between the age of 41-50.
