A total of six hypotheses was developed for our study, three of the hypotheses to test job demands, emotional demands and living a calling and their effects on work related burnout; while the other three hypotheses test job demands, emotional demands and living a calling on work engagement. Our survey conducted provided the empirical support for our hypotheses. Our study found close relationship of job and emotional demands having a positive relationship to work related burnout which is aligned with JD-R model. We also found that both emotional demand and living a calling are psychological aspect for the employee which has direct relationship to work engagement.
