This study investigates the role of coworker and supervisor support on three aspects of burnout: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and lack of personal accomplishment. In particular, the authors argue that different sources of social support at work can influence these three aspects of burnout differently. Data collected from personnel at a university in South Texas was used to test the authors’ hypotheses. The results from partial least square regression show that coworker support strongly and negatively associates with emotional exhaustion and depersonalization, while supervisor support strongly and negatively associates with lack of personal accomplishment.
