Objective: The study surveyed burnout, job satisfaction and years in employment for healthcare workers. A substantial amount of research suggests that burnout, job satisfaction and psychosocial health are important issues that healthcare workers experience globally.

Methodology: 194 healthcare workers (185 females and 9 males), respondents participated in answering demographic questions followed by two questionnaires; the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) and the Work-Related Quality of Life (WRQoL) via an online social media platform. The data was analysed using a statistical software SPSS which was used to a compute Pearson and Spearman correlation coefficient.

Results: The analysis resulted showed that a significantly, strong negative correlation was found between the two variables, burnout, and Job satisfaction. A non-statistically significant relationship was shown between burnout and years in employment.

Discussion: These findings can be used by healthcare organisations to further knowledge to address appropriate initiatives to improve quality of working life with the objective to reduce burnout of healthcare workers.
