Abstract

The current study aims to investigate the extent of job satisfaction contribution to employee engagement. Employee engagement has been found as being important to employee productivity and organization performance. Participants were 110 employees of a private property company in Makassar, Indonesia. A self-administered questionnaire was used to measure job satisfaction and employee engagement. Simple multiple regression showed that Job satisfaction was significantly predicted employee engagement (R 2 = .561, p<.05) Additionally, multiple regression highlighted factors of job satisfaction such as operating conditions, co-workers, nature of works, and communication significantly contributed to employee engagement whereas promotion, pay benefit, and reward were found to be insignificant. These results suggest that increasing job satisfaction can potentially leverage employee engagement. However, only three out of seven factors of job satisfaction contributed significant effect to the employee engagement. Future research is needed to test whether these findings can be found in other company with the same type of business and other types of business.
