EXAMINING THE GENDER INFLUENCE ON EMPLOYEES’ WORK ENGAGEMENT WITHIN A SOUTH AFRICAN UNIVERSITYDownload This Article
Organisations should prioritize and promote employees’ work engagement if they are to effectively realise their goals and objectives. This study seeks to examine the influence of gender on employees’ levels of work engagement within a South African university. A quantitative non-experimental cross-sectional survey design was used to collect data from 154 university employees who were purposefully selected to participate in this study. Data were analysed using SPSS software (version 23.0) and the findings show no statistically significant gender differences amongst employees with regard to their levels of work engagement. The findings provide scope for further research in South Africa which should examine ethnic and cultural connotations related to gender and further investigate how these influence employees’ work engagement.
