A study into work values and servant leadership as antecedents of employee engagement
I theorized that work values as individual differences will influence employee engagement and that servant leadership behavior can moderate this relation. The field of studies into employee engagement is growing rapidly, but apart from job characteristics and leadership styles, individual differences have not received much attention. Sixty-‐seven surveys for this cross sectional research design were eligible for analyses and findings showed a negative correlation between intrinsic work values and employee engagement. No other work values predicted engagement and servant leadership had no moderating relations. Nonetheless, servant leadership itself was positively related to employee engagement.
