oa Journal of Contemporary Management - The employee wellness and employee engagement relationship in a parastatal

This article reports on an ethically cleared investigation into the relationship between employee wellness and employee engagement in the context of a parastatal organisation in South Africa. "Employee wellness" and "employee engagement" are fundamental concepts for organisations seeking optimum performance and wishing to remain sustainable and competitive in highly demanding environments. A cross-sectional, quantitative research approach was used in which data were collected from a random probability sample through an electronic questionnaire. Significant correlations were observed between the work engagement scales and the wellness scales, indicating the existence of a significant direct positive relationship between employee wellness and employee engagement. The results of the empirical study could practically influence behaviours at an organisational level and may make a positive contribution to existing literature on employee wellness and employee engagement within a parastatal.
