Abstract

The purpose of this study was to discover the relationship between employee engagement with chosen engagement drivers (quality of life, company practices, total rewards, work, people, and opportunities) along with the consequence of intention to turnover and job satisfaction. An experimental survey was carefully designed to examine employee engagement, job satisfaction, and intention to turnover for full-time university employees across the United States. This study sought to identify the definitive relationship between the selected engagement drivers (quality of life, company practices, total rewards, work, people, and opportunities) from Aon Hewitt’s global research study for employees, job satisfaction within the university for a specific role, along with an employee’s intention to turnover. The study found that employees with higher levels of employee engagement had low turnover intentions and were satisfied with their jobs.
