Abstract Introduction: International literature highlights the relationship between work engagement and burnout, especially in particularly stressful occupations, such as health care. Although there is a study in the population of doctors, nurses and other health professionals, there are no strong indications for the administrators of these services. Aim: The present study attempted to study the population of administrators of Primary Health Care (PHC) structures in Crete and asked two key research questions. What is the relationship between work engagement and burnout in the administrative employees of the PHC structures of the 7th Health Region? Which characteristics of the employees affect work engagement and burnout levels and in what direction? Methods: A synchronous study was conducted in the period 2020-2021 on a sample of 81 administrative employees of Healthcare Centers (HC) and Local Healthcare Units (LHU) in Crete (7th Health Region) (response rate> 90%). For the needs of the study, we used the Greek validated versions of two psychometric tools, the UWES-15 psychometric tool for the assessment of work engagement and its three dimensions (vigor, dedication & absorption) and the OLBI psychometric tool for the measurement of burnout and its two dimensions (exhaustion & disengagement). In UWES-15, the scores per dimension are obtained by calculating the average value of all answers, and the final score is obtained by adding the scores of the three dimensions. The scores of the total scale and each dimension separately range from 0 to 6 indicating increased levels of engagement the higher the score, as described above (0: never - 6: always). The final score of OLBI is obtained by adding the scores of the two dimensions, which derives from the average value of the answers. The analysis was conducted by parametric two-sided tests, at significance level α = 0.05 in IBM SPSS 26.00. Two- Samples Independent T-Test and Pearson’s correlation coefficient rho tests were applied. Results: Work engagement was measured at medium-high levels (score 3.76). The dimension of vigor was measured at higher levels (score 3.86), with the dimensions of absorption and dedication following with a score of 3.73 and 3.67 respectively (0-2: low levels, 2-3: medium levels, 3-5: high levels, 5-6: very high levels). Also, the levels of burnout were found at high-very high levels (34.96), with the dimension of disengagement being at lower levels than the dimension of exhaustion (16.8 vs. 18.1 Public Health-Primary Health Care-Health Services School of Medicine – University of Crete vi respectively) (the higher the score -especially above 25- the higher the levels, there are no specific limits/cut-offs). The relationship between work engagement and burnout was found to be statistically significant and negative (rho = -0.78, Pvalue<0.001), while work engagement seems to explain over 60% of burnout trends. Statistically significant differences between demographic characteristics and burnout don’t appear in our study population, except for the employer (HC and LCH) which is not considered essential due to the inequality of the sample between the two types of PHC structures. However, in terms of work engagement, it was found that it differs based on age and marital status. In particular, older people and those who are married seem to have higher levels of engagement. Conclusion: The degree of work engagement seems to reduce the levels of burnout and the relationship between the two is reciprocal to the administrative staff of PHC. Further study is needed to identify causative correlations and other risk factors, but we can already make some suggestions for controlling burnout in this area as well.
