||This study introduces a short measure for burnout (the Bergen Burnout Inventory, BBI) and examines its validity and reliability among managers in Finland and Estonia by means of confirmatory factor analysis. Burnout comprises three dimensions: exhaustion at work (emotional component); cynicism toward the meaning of work (cognitive component); sense of inadequacy at work (behavioral component). A total of 742 young Finnish managers and 414 Estonian managers responded to burnout and effort-reward imbalance scales. Findings are discussed. It is concluded that the BBI can be used for the measurement of burnout in both research and occupational health contexts.
