The present research purported to explore the level of burnout in the organizational setting. Three types of banking sectors; public, private, and multinational banks were selected. It was hypothesized that there is likely to be a difference of job burnout level among the employees of public, private and multinational organizations. A sample consisting of N = 180 bank employees (public, private and multinational banks) was carefully chosen for the present study. The scale “Are You Showing the Signs of Burnout” (Headington Institute, 2011) was used to assess burnout in the employees of different sectors. Psychometric properties of the scale were determined for the present sample. ANOVA was used to find out the level of burnout in employees and post-hoc analysis was applied to see the difference. Results revealed that there is a difference in the level of job burnout in the employees of public, private and multinational banks.
