Maritime is one of the sectors where conflicts from work to the family are

experienced the most. It is vital to examine the results of behavioral

outputs in an area where staying away from the family is so effective

that burnout is accompanied by severe difficulty. The primary purpose of

the study is to examine the role of burnout in the impact of work-family

conflicts (WFC) experienced by key players in the maritime industry on job

satisfaction. Data gathered from 372 participants working in the maritime

sector were analyzed using structural equation modeling (SEM). The

results show that burnout has a partial mediating effect on job satisfaction.

After the literature review and results, the applications that motivate

and keep key players engaged are discussed. In this context, for those

working in the maritime industry, from work to family conflict has been

shown to play a critical role in burnout and job satisfaction modeling.
