Predictors of Burnout Among Supply Chain Management Professionals

Purpose The competitive market for supply chain management (SCM) talent has increased the importance of retaining SCM employees. This paper examines burnout among supply chain management professionals, focusing specifically on remote work, overtime and nontradtional hours (OT/NT), satisfaction with pay, and transformational leadership.Design/methodology/approachThis study utilizes a survey of 104 U.S. employees working in SCM roles and applies the data through a moderated regression analysis of a theoretical model and a series of hypotheses.FindingsUsing person-environment fit as a theoretical background, this study found that burnout is increased when workers perceive a deficit in the amount of remote work permitted and when working OT/NT, whereas burnout is reduced by pay satisfaction and a perception of transformational leadership. There is also an interaction between pay satisfaction and OT/NT, with OT/NT taking precedence over pay satisfaction in driving feelings of burnout.OriginalityVery few studies have addressed talent management in SCM. This study has identified some insights that are relevant to managers and to future research on this subject.
