Social Structure, Burnout, and Job Satisfaction.
Arches, Joan
Social Work, v36 n3 p202-06 May 1991
Surveyed 275 social workers concerning job satisfaction and burnout. Findings revealed that perceived lack of autonomy and influence of funding sources were major contributors to burnout, and perceived autonomy and bureaucratization were major contributors to job satisfaction. Results challenge assumption that bureaucracy is most efficient form of organization and question ideological and social control functions of organizations. (Author/NB)
