Sažetak
Managing prisons is one of the tough tasks for the criminal justice professionals. Especially, prison management takes the toll of time and energy of many of the prison staff. There may be a tough routine, difficult prisoners, unsupportive higher-ups, critical governments etc, which may cause physical and mental exhaustion of the prison staff. This exhaustion leads to burn out which is though common to any other type of employees working in other organizations, but in a different magnitude and dimension. The issue of job burnout among prison staff is intensely studied by various researchers in several countries around the world. There were many correlative studies on job burnout. However, there are no comparative studies on this issue. There is a need to fill the gap in the literature on the comparative aspect of job burnout among prison staff and this paper tries to compare job burnout between American and Croatian prison staff. The Maslach Burnout Inventory was used to collect data from 480 respondents in the U.S., and 442 respondents in Croatia. Results indicate severe job burnout among prison staff in both the countries.
