ABSTRACT A exaustão emocional é considerada como o fator central do burnout. Diversas pesquisas mostram que características do ambiente de trabalho e do trabalhador estão associadas ao desenvolvimento da exaustão emocional. Este trabalho apresenta os resultados de uma investigação sobre dois aspectos importantes para o estudo da exaustão emocional: a percepção de suporte organizacional (PSO) e o coping no trabalho. 369 trabalhadores responderam uma escala de exaustão emocional, uma de PSO e outra de coping no trabalho. Os fatores gestão de desempenho, sobrecarga, suporte social e ascensão e salários da escala de PSO e o fator escape da escala de coping revelaram-se preditores significativos da dimensão exaustão psicológica da escala de exaustão emocional. A segunda dimensão desta escala, percepção de desgaste, só foi predita significativamente pelos fatores suporte social e sobrecarga da escala de PSO. Recomendações para lidar com a exaustão emocional são apresentadas.

    ABSTRACT: The study of employee confidence in the organization contributes to understanding the entailment formation with the employing organization. Therefore, this study shows the results of an investigation about a theorical model that includes the following preditors variables: perception of organizational support, affects and resilience, with respect to the employee confidence in the organization. The sample consisted of 160 employees who answered to the valid and reliable instruments. For data analysis we used descriptive statistics, reliability calculation of the measurements and stepwise regression analysis. The results indicated that the main predictor of employee confidence is the perception of organizational support which explained the highest percentage of variance in the criterion variables. Affection was eliminated from all models, while resilience explains a small percentage of confidence in ethical standards. These results are discussed from the perspective of the literature and a research agenda is proposed.

    ABSTRACT: This study aimed to analyze the mediational power of the affective organizational commitment in the relation among the perceptions of distributive, procedural, and interactional justice and burnout. Participants were 233 university professors. The following instruments were used: Maslach Burnout Inventory, Organizational Justice Perception Scale, and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire. We analyzed the mediational power of commitment in the relation between perception of justice and burnout, from a hierarchical regression. The mediational power of commitment was confirmed in the relationship between the perceptions of distributive justice and exhaustion. It can be concluded that the perceptions of injustice in the form of resource distribution may lead university professors to exhaustion, which might be more likely to happen if there is lack of commitment.
