Ashraf Elsafty, Nabil A. Hanafi


The literature widely covered engagement from different perspectives and how it is affected by different job resources and job demands. This study tackles the effect of job resources including the hybrid-working model, manager coaching, and other resources on engagement. Even though job resources were extensively examined in the literature; this paper introduces the hybrid working model as a job resource and the long-term assignment as a job demand affecting employee engagement.

This study aimed to investigate the effect of the hybrid working model, manager coaching and development plans under long-term assignment conditions on engagement using a cross-sectional questionnaire. Respondents were engineers involved in a long-term assignment (long duration in the same project). The results revealed that job resources had a statistical significance as well as a positive relationship with engagement, while LTA had a statistical significance as well as a negative moderating effect on the relationship between job resources and engagement.

The study findings suggested that the relationship between job resources and engagement is negatively moderated by working on long-term assignments.
