Thesis Title

Understanding Work Engagement from an Employee Perspective: A Qualitative Exploration

Current Research

My main research interest and the focus of my doctoral study is the concept of employee engagement. In particular, I am interested in understanding the nature of this phenomenon, and the reasons for people to dedicate themselves to and engage with their work. In order to gain this deep understanding, I focus on exploring the ways in which engagement is perceived and experienced by employees in organisations.
