Abstract:
The main aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between drivers of engagement and work engagement within X and Y generations. Work engagement is conceptualized through Schaufeli et al. (2002) approach with vigor, dedication, and absorption. As a work engagement predictors, we observed supervisory support, supervisory feedback, and perceived autonomy (drawing on the Job Demand - Resource model). Research conducted among employees of private sector indicates that supervisory support and perceived autonomy are significant predictors of work engagement. Results suggest that Gen X show higher levels of work engagement in general and with particular emphasis on the dimension of dedication.
