Abstract and Keywords

This chapter addresses the issue of the creation and maintenance of a climate for employee engagement in organizations. Employee engagement has been receiving increased attention in the past 5 to 10 years and is increasingly recognized as a crucial source of competitive advantage. This chapter offers a definition of “a climate for engagement,” locates climate for engagement in a taxonomy of “climates for something,” offers items by which to measure a climate for engagement, and offers an integrated model showing how climate for engagement mediates the influence of antecedents (e.g., organizational leadership, culture, human resource management systems, organizational climate) on psychological-motivational factors (e.g., need satisfaction, engagement) and downstream attitudes, behaviors and organizational level effectiveness outcomes.

Keywords: climate for engagement-definition and measure, employee engagement, organizational climate, taxonomy of climates
