Abstract: This study presents an overview of quantitative research investigating relationships between dimensions of occupational justice and burnout as antecedents to competency in staff from small and medium sized businesses. 350 Bangkok, Thailand, respondents were selected using purposive sampling. They represent a broad demographic from the human service industry in Thailand’s growing middle class population of professionals that experience both high levels of occupational justice and burnout. Study instruments include a questionnaire developed to measure competency alongside previously tested measures in burnout and in human capabilities to gauge occupational justice. Occupational justice was measured against competency with job burnout serving as a moderator. Moderated multiple regression (MMR) analysis tested factor interaction and hypotheses at greater than .05 statistically significant levels. Research findings show significant correlation between high levels of occupational justice and competency while reduced levels of burnout reduced competency. However, high levels in either competency or occupational justice did not reduce levels of burnout, especially if both were present in an individual. This study seeks to improve how businesses should evaluate their workforce with environmental scans to identify and prevent faults that may hinder their organization. It aims to initiate dialogue on workplace dissonance from continuous negative spillover propagated by occupational injustices. The scope of the study focuses on safeguarding human capital to maintain workforce wellbeing. Such methodology will assist in developing worker dependent systems and businesses that promote optimal work behavior.
