The present research set out to examine the mediating role of emotional exhaustion (burnout) and moderating roles of two critical dimensions of hope that are namely waypower and willpower. Hope is the sum of mental willpower and waypower that one simply has for reaching one’s goals (in the process of reaching one’s goals). The actualization in hopeful thinking whereas on the other hand, waypower reflects the mental plans or the way that guide hopeful thought known as the Willpower. These empirical findings entail valuable lessons for human resource managers and organizational behavior researchers who are interested in reducing burnouts that are likely to reduce an organization’s productivity and threaten its competitiveness in the long term. The present project is positioned to contribute to the literature further to enhance policy practices that could eventually benefit employees’ wellbeing at both work and life in the future. How job characteristics exercise effectiveness on job burnout and how job burnout in turn affects job satisfaction among Vietnamese expatriates working in Taiwan and how the motivating psychological characteristics of employees may help reduce the effect of stress will be a central to this study.
