Authors : Sanad A. Alajmi, Jarrah F. Al-Mansour and Zuhair Ebranim Alabbad

Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between the quality of work life and job burnout among working women in the Kuwaiti public sector. Five hundred questionnaires were administered to women working in two pre-selected public sector organizations in Kuwait out of which 412 questionnaires were returned fully and appropriately filled. The results indicate that there is a negative relationship between quality of work life and job burnout among working women. The findings indicate that the quality of work life explains 28.5% of the variations that occur in job burnouts. The study concludes with implications of job burnout for both individuals and organizations. It also provides some suggestions on future research in job burnout in public and private sector organizations in Kuwait.
