Wellbeing, stress and burnout: a national survey of managers in alcohol and other drug treatment services

21 Aug 2007
Description

A survey of alcohol and other drug treatment services found that a majority of managers were satisfied with their jobs and committed to their organisations. But 8 per cent of managers indicated experiencing high levels of burnout and one in five expressed an intention to look for a new job outside the field. The key predictors of managers’ wellbeing were perceived reciprocity, adequate managerial skills and training, high levels of workplace support, high levels of autonomy, manageable workloads, adequate rewards for performance, and a safe and pleasant physical work environment. This report highlights key study findings and implications for workforce development workplace policy and practice.
