The major purpose of this study was to examine the extent to which two job resources, autonomy and supervisor support, and two personality traits, openness to experience and extraversion, were related to job engagement and whether they interact with each other to influence job engagement. In particular, this study examined whether personality traits moderate the relationship between job resources and job engagement.
Using a sample of 162 full-time employees, the results showed that only autonomy and supervisor support related significantly to job engagement even when personality traits were taken into consideration. However, the personality traits did not relate to job engagement once job resources were taken into account, nor did they interact with the job resources to influence job engagement. These findings, in part, confirm a proposition of the Job Demands-Resources model that job resources are positively related to job engagement. Implications of the findings are discussed.
