Abstract: This thesis examined the nuanced relations between work engagement and organisational justice and its underlying mechanisms. In Study 1, a sample of 306 full-time employees completed a survey. Results from structural equation modelling showed that employees’ perceptions of procedural and distributive justice predicted their emotional engagement indirectly through perceived organisational justice, while their perceptions of interpersonal and informational justice predicted all dimensions of work engagement indirectly through trust in immediate supervisor. In Study 2, participants completed 2 surveys daily over 10 working days. Using multi-level analyses, data from 153 full-time employees showed that the proposed framework was not applicable at the within-person level. However, findings at the between-person level largely replicated that of Study 1. Findings from both studies suggested that supervisor-specific factors may be better predictors of employees’ work engagement and that intra- and inter-individual differences in work engagement may be predicted by different sets of predictors.
