Project #70331 - Work Engagement

2 page paper, post (No. 1) and respond (No. 2)

Work Engagement

All organizations seek employees who are enthusiastic and energetic as well as intelligent and focused. Employees who are highly engaged with their work are found to be more productive and are less likely to exhibit withdrawal behaviors such as absenteeism and burnout. The term engagement can describe psychological states, and behaviors, which together can be challenging to define and measure. Work engagement may be a unique concept or simply other constructs recombined, with both attitudinal and behavioral components, but it is considered to be an asset for organizations that can foster engaged employees and reap the benefits.

For this Discussion, consider work engagement in relation to job attitudes, job involvement, and job burnout.

With these thoughts in mind:

No. 1 - Post an explanation of whether work engagement is a job attitude or a consequence of job attitudes and why. Then explain whether work engagement is the same as or different from job involvement and why. Finally, explain whether work engagement is the opposite of job burnout or something distinct from job burnout and why.
