Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine how work ability, health-related organizational climate, and work health management interference (WHMI) contributed to burnout, with a particular interest in those with lower levels of work ability as a result of chronic illness/disease. The overall research objective was to examine whether healthrelated organizational climate moderated the mediating effect of work-health management interference on the relationship between work ability and job burnout. A convenience sample of 2,056 adults living and working in the United States who responded to a recruitment message participated in this study. Participants accessed a survey in Qualtrics via a link provided in an email or accessible via electronic posting and completed a survey that included sociodemographic and job-related items, as well as measures to evaluate levels of work ability, burnout, WHMI, and health-oriented organizational climate. Results showed that work ability had a significant predictive effect on burnout, WHMI played a mediating role in the relationship between work ability and burnout, and organizational health-related climate was found to play a moderating role in the relationship between work ability and WHMI. These findings add to research on the relationship between work ability and burnout and serve as a foundation for organizations to adapt and develop strategies to better support employees with lowered work ability due to chronic disease/health conditions in order to reduce job burnout and improve well-being and productivity.
