Utilizing the Maslach Burnout Inventory in Cross-Cultural Research
International Journal of Management
Over the last twenty years more than 100 studies have been conducted to test substantive hypotheses related to burnout in a variety of occupations. Parallel to this line of research have been tests of the factorial stability of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) in different cultures and languages. In the current study we reviewed measurement equivalency of the MBI. We found that, in general, the dimensionality of the instrument was similar across multiple languages and countries. Recommendations are provided to enhance the effectiveness of using the MBI in cross-cultural research.
