Clinical Significance: This research provides occupational health specialists with useful suggestions for promoting workers’ mental health. More specifically, our findings suggest that organizational policies should systematically address the different forms that recognition at work can take (esteem, respect, and care) and the sources from which it can originate (coworkers and supervisors) as a key factor in protecting against burnout.
