Studying the prevalence of workaholism and employee burnout in the banking industry was the focus of this study. Data on workaholism, burnout, and associated traits was gathered from a sample of bankers using validated questionnaires. Workaholism and burnout were positively correlated indicating that those who engaged in more workaholism were also more likely to become burnout by their occupations. The importance of workaholic tendencies in encouraging the development of burnout symptoms was further highlighted by the results of the regression analysis, which demonstrated a significant effect of workaholism on burnout. This study employed a quantitative research approach to investigate the relationship between workaholism, and occupational burnout. The sample included 200 male and female bank workers. Participants were selected using a convenience sample technique, meaning that they were chosen because they were both available and interested in taking part in the study. These findings underscore the importance of recognizing workaholism as a risk factor for burnout and the necessity for programs in the banking industry to address work-life balance and promote well-being. Banks may improve their ability to recruit and retain top talent by implementing strategies that lessen workaholism and foster a more positive work environment, all of which have been shown to minimize burnout and boost job satisfaction. The findings are the addition to the existing theory as well has practical implication for the managers and future researchers.</p> Wardah Ayub, Muhammad Fiaz Copyright (c) 2023 Open Access Organization and Management Review Sun, 31 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Comparative Study of the Impact of Authentic Leadership on Organizational Commitment of Public and Private Secondary School Teachers <p>This comparative study was conducted to investigate the influence of authentic leadership on the organizational commitment of secondary school teachers. The study focuses on both public and private secondary schools, recognizing the distinct contextual factors that may shape the relationship between authentic leadership and organizational commitment in these two sectors. This study aimed to bridge the gap by exploring the potential impact of authentic leadership behaviors exhibited by school principals on the organizational commitment of teachers, while considering potential variations between the public and private school contexts. A mixed method was employed. Data collection involved surveys, interviews, and document analysis. The findings suggest that authentic leadership plays a crucial role in influencing teachers' affective and normative commitment levels in both public and private secondary schools in the KP region. The implications of these findings are significant for educational policymakers, school administrators, and leadership development programs. Strengthening authentic leadership behaviors among school principals could foster higher levels of organizational commitment among teachers, contributing to improved educational outcomes and teacher well-being. The study underscores the need for tailored approaches in enhancing authentic leadership practices based on the specific sector; thereby promoting a more committed and engaged teaching workforce in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Further research avenues and recommendations are discussed in light of the study's outcomes.</p> Muti Ullah Khan, Asif Jamil Copyright (c) 2023 Open Access Organization and Management Review Sun, 31 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Ethics and Organizational Performance: Exploring the Impact of Leadership in Higher Education <p>It is impossible to overstate the role that ethical leadership plays in driving higher education institutions (HEIs) success in light of the rapid pace of change in the sector.
