Abstract [en]

Technology has changed the relationship between work and life and allowed work to engage in our home lives. It is no longer the case that when the working day is over people switch off, rather it is when people go home and remain connected. In a culture where people are always connected via information and communication technology (ICT) the line between work and life has blurred. The present study investigated the relationship between ICT and occupational burnout with the mediating role of recovery experiences and their importance in the relationship. The study was conducted in Southern Sweden in Växjö.The study included 101 participants both male (N=53) and female (N=48) from public and private sectors where participants used ICT on a regular basis to perform job-related tasks. Data was collected using a self-reported web-based questionnaire. Results of the study revealed that there is no significant correlation between ICT and occupational burnout. However, it was found that there is a significant negative correlation between ICT and recovery experiences and a strong significant negative correlation between and recovery experiences and occupational burnout. It was concluded that occupational burnout results from insufficient recovery from work-related stressors and not the stress itself.
