The research sample was 120 employees of four manufacturing companies located in Bantul, Yogyakarta. Research findings suggest that burnout mediates the influence of ambiguity and role conflict on commitment. The study produced an interesting finding that role ambiguity had a negative effect on burnout and role conflict had a positive effect on commitment.
