the worker have high/low levels of engagement/burnout/PSC?
Discuss your findings within the context of the previous research in this area. Did your subject’s results align
with previous research in their field of work? Address any qualifications or reservations that you have about
your results and some areas for future research in this area. The discussion should end with a concise and clear
summary about what you found and what your findings may imply. Relate your findings back to the literature
