Maslach Burnout Inventory

What is the Maslach Burnout Inventory(MBI)?

The MBI measures burnout as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO). Designed for use with occupational groups other than human services and education, including customer service, maintenance, manufacturing, management, and most other professions.

What are the benefits of using your MBI?

Uses of the MBI help in assessing professional burnout in human service, education, business, and government professions. It is assessed in the three-dimensional structure namely occupational exhaustion(EE), depersonalization/loss of empathy (DP), and personal accomplishment assessment (PA). Understanding burnout helps in remediation and creating better work and organizational culture. This leads to a productive and engaged workforce when burnout is resolved.

What is burnout?

There are three aspects to burnout: physical, psychological, and emotional. A person suffering from burnout describes themselves as feeling exhausted and disinterested in the activities they once found appealing or satisfying.

How is the score calculated for MBI?
