MetadataShow full item record
There is an increasing fear by employers due to the transformational leadership expressed among employees in the organisation. This may be attributed to perceptions of leadership which do no align with employee‟s engagement thus creating disparity. Thus this results into job satisfaction among employees. The problem this brings for organizations lies in identifying how they could create the type of working environment in their organizations that fosters the psychological mechanisms that deliver excellent performance and mitigate employee intentions to quit. Much of the research on turnover has been focused on developing conceptual models of the turnover process and on identifying variables associated therewith, such as satisfaction, commitment and intention to quit (Elangoven, 2001). However, there is little evidence in the literature on the relationship between employee engagement, transformational leadership, and job satisfaction. This study therefore aims to explore this relationship with the aim of providing valuable information on the type of practices that an organization could focus on to foster an environment that enables optimal performance and mitigates the harboring of satisfaction among its employees. 4 Purpose of the study To examine the relationship among transformational leadership, employee engagement and job satisfaction among workers of National Water and Sewage Corporation.
