Abstract

The fundamental goal of this research was to develop a model of employee engagement from the perspective of private sector employees in Melaka, Malaysia, which can be added to the body of knowledge. It was carried out to determine the relationships between employee participation, job security, performance feedback, as well as rewards and recognition on employee engagement. This study found that all tested variables are positively related to employee engagement. Based on the findings, it is recommended that the private sector should prioritise efforts that enhance employee participation, provide robust career package and constant feedback. Employees’ contributions also need to be adequately recognised at all levels to ensure organisations are able to enhance its performance.
