The aim of the article is to reveal the employees' professional burnout in the context of their organizational commitment. Analysis of scientific literature, questionnaire survey, statistical data analysis including correlation analysis were used for achieving the aim. In this article we aim to answer the question: is there a relationship between employees’ professional burnout and their organizational commitment? The results of the study showed that the respondents have an average level of commitment, the strongest commitment is affective, the weakest commitment is normative. Older, long-tenured workers and women have been found to be more committed to their workplace and have stronger emotional commitment than young employees, employees with short work experience and men. The obtained research results did not reveal strong signs of professional burnout although workers with less work experience were found to experience the highest levels of burnout. Nevertheless, it has been observed that there is a statistically significant and moderately negative correlation between employee commitment and professional burnout. The study results showed that affective commitment correlates most strongly with two dimensions of burnout: the dimension of depersonalization and the dimension of decrease in personal aspirations. As a result of the research, it has been stated that as employee professional burnout strengthens, their commitment diminishes.
