Introduction: The quality of work life is a relevant psychosocial variable, which has been studying in health organizations in recent years. This variable encompasses an intrinsic factor that links subjective experiences in work and an objective factor, which is associated with working content and working environment. Objectives: This study had two main aims. First, to determine whether quality of work life is correlated to job satisfaction and burnout syndrome; and second determine whether there is differences in terms of assessment of quality of work life in different organizational levels. Method: To achieve these goals, it collected 72 participants from a public health organization in Chile. Results: The quality of work life was significantly associated with job satisfaction and burnout syndrome. Additionally, it found that significant differences based on quality of work life’s assessment between manager and technical levels (p < 0.048). Conclusion: These results suggest that these three psychosocial variables are closely related in health organizational contexts and a general comprehension of quality of work life should consider a global approach
