Despite a rapidly growing body of work on the nature of stress and burnout in organizations, relatively little research has been conducted in development of a tool for investigating burnout in different work context. Toward a cross-validation procedure the dataset, a sample of healthcare service employees (N = 814), was randomly split in order to assess the questionnaire structure toward explorative and confirmatory factorial analysis. In this paper we present creation and development of a new and short tool, the Burnout Indicator Tool (BIT), analysing dimensionality, reliability and validity. The BIT consists of 9 items and three scales measuring exhaustion, cynicism, and sense of professional efficacy. All three scales were found to have very high internal reliability. Keywords: burnout, confirmatory factor analysis, factorial validity, reliability, organizational well-being.
