|Abstract:||The aim of this study is to analyze the impact of occupational self efficacy and its factors on employee engagement. The survey was completed by 78 middle and senior level executives in select Indian organizations from both private and public sectors. The Utrecht Work Engagement Scale and Occupational Self-Efficacy Scale were used. The results clearly show that occupational self efficacy is correlated positively and is a significant predictor of employee engagement. The six factors of occupational self efficacy were all significantly related to employee engagement. Of the six factors of occupational self efficacy confidence was found to be most strong predictor of employee engagement. The small sample size of poses a limit to the extent, to which results can be generalized. This study has demonstrated the importance of occupational self efficacy in enhancing the engagement level of employees. Thus the managers can plan the interventions accordingly to enhance the employee engagement. This paper enhances one's knowledge of factors linked to employee engagement. © Journal of the Indian Academy of Applied Psychology.|
