Table 4 Pearson correlation (Significance; N) of background measures with the Approaches to Work Questionnaire. Correlations significant at p < 0.05 are in bold, and those with an absolute value of greater than 0.2 are underlined. Variables that are significant in the multiple regression (see text) are indicated in italics.
