Employee engagement is a very vast field and a very important area of study in the field of Human Resource Management. There is considerable confusion between the two concept job satisfaction and employee engagement as people consider them as the same. But the fact is that concepts like job satisfaction, employee commitment and organizational citizenship behavior are the pillars on which the concept of employee engagement is based. Employee engagement is the level of commitment and involvement an employee has towards his organization and its values. The concept of employee engagement is relatively new to the business and academic world. However, research to a considerable extent has been made to link engagement and organizational processes and outcomes. The paper intends to highlight the concept of employee engagement and its correlation with organizational performance.
