Recognized as the leading measure of burnout, the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) is validated by the extensive research that has been conducted in the more than 25 years since its initial publication.
The Areas of Worklife Survey (AWS) was created to assess employees' perceptions of worksetting qualities that play a role in whether they experience work engagement or burnout. It is a companion piece to the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI). The AWS is a short questionnaire with demonstrated reliability and validity across a variety of occupational settings. It produces a profile of scores that permit users to identify key areas of strength or weakness in their organizational settings. It applies to small workgroups or summary profiles across large organizations.
The combined AWS and MBI has three forms:
AWS + MBI-HSS:
This form includes the AWS form and the MBI-Human Services Survey (MBI-HSS). The MBI-HSS is the original measure designed for professionals in the human services. MBI-HSS Copyright © 1981 by Christina Maslach & Susan E. Jackson
