The influx of remote and hybrid work arrangements has led researchers to explore whether recovery differs between remote and hybrid workers and how organizations can best facilitate worker recovery in these contexts. Using the stressor-detachment model as a theoretical framework, the present study investigated whether an individual’s work arrangement and levels of emotional stability influenced the relationship between workload and personal burnout via psychological detachment. Cross-sectional and time-lagged analyses using self-report data from 167 working individuals revealed that detachment fully mediated the workload-burnout relationship in the time-lagged sample; however, no support was found for the mediating effect of psychological detachment in the cross-sectional sample. Primary moderation hypotheses were not supported. Supplemental analyses found a significant interaction between workload and work segmentation in the cross-sectional sample, such that the workload-detachment relationship was positive for those in low segmentation work arrangements and negative for those in high segmentation work arrangements.
