The Concept of Employee Engagement: A Comprehensive Review from a Positive Organizational Behavior Perspective
Jeung, Chang-Wook
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v24 n2 p49-69 2011
Employee engagement has been understood from various academic and practical perspectives, mainly due to its recent popularity. This study explores not only positive movements--positive psychology, positive organizational scholarship (POS), and positive organizational behavior (POB)--as a background of engagement but also the conceptualization, instrumentation, and empirically proven antecedents and consequences of engagement. Based on the findings, this study examines how engagement can be included as a POB construct, considering the five criteria of POB: positivity criterion, theory- and research-based criterion, valid measurement criterion, state-like criterion, and performance impact criterion.
