However, current self-directed and boundaryless career trend brings unprecedented challenges for organizations to foster employee engagement using traditional means.

After conducting a two-wave study with a sample of 231 employees, we found that future work-self was positively related to work engagement; and both person-vocation fit and trust in supervisor… More >
