The study examined the influence of job demand and job status on job involvement of non-burnout employees. From the 347 randomly selected respondents, 158 non-burnout employees were extracted (male=106; females= 52), with ages ranging between 17 and 50 years (mean=28.85; SD=7.97). They responded to validated measure of occupational burnout (α=.71), job demand (α=.74) and job involvement (α=.68). Using 2X3 ANOVA to test hypotheses, findings revealed that job involvement of non-burnout employees decreases with increase in their job demand [F(1, 152) =26.51,p <.01]. Senior level non-burnout employees significantly showed higher involvement compared to intermediate and junior level employees [F(2, 152)=6.86, p <.01]. By implication, the inevitable course for increasing demands and job level via circumstances like promotion for organizational growth should be done with caution. This is not just to avoid the negative effects of stress, but building on its advantages of creating innovative, challenging and achievable task oriented jobroles.
