Tennakoon WDNSM, Lasanthika WJAJM
The power of the religiosity over employee engagement remain unaddressed in the academic context. The aim of this study was to test the association between the religiosity and employee engagement. A quantitative study was performed with the participation of a general sample extracted from the Sri Lankan institutions. The cross sectional study gathered data on religiosity and engagement using a 10 items-three component measurement and Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES) with 9 items respectively. The Pearson’s product movement correlation analysis and least square linear regression analysis analysed the data over which the hypothesis were tested. The results revealed a strong and positive relationship between religiosity and employee engagement. Future investigations are suggested to incorporate other possible influencers and alternative methodologies.
