Abstract

Employee engagement is a workplace approach designed to ensure that employees are committed to their organization’s goals and values, motivated to contribute to organizational success, and are able at the same time to enhance their own sense of well-being. Engaged organizations have strong and authentic values, with clear evidence of trust and fairness based on mutual respect, where two way promises and commitments –between employers and staff –are understood, and are fulfilled. Although improved performance and productivity is at the heart of engagement, it cannot be achieved by a mechanistic approach which tries to extract discretionary effort by manipulating employees’ commitment and emotions. An engaged employee experiences a blend of job satisfaction, organizational commitment, job involvement and feelings of empowerment. Sivakasi is an industrial town which is noted for its industrious work nature of the people. This paper analyses the practices of employees’ engagement in printing industries in the study area.
