The article is devoted to the problem of work engagement, it provides the literature review on this issue.

The analysis of the literature reveals the discrepancy between a large number of different theories of motivation for the needs of modern organizations, the absence of a single universal theoretical model of work motivation, and a methodology that can measure the degree of work motivation for a particular activity in an organization.

All this would allow the employer to create organizational mechanisms stimulating high labor efficiency.

The concept of work engagement as a factor of high productivity of workers is introduced.

The article presents the results of the study of work engagement of the employees of the pharmaceutical company LLC “NPF “Materia Medica Holding”. According to the results of the study there is a discussion of the patterns of the work engagement factors, subjective perception of the engagement of colleagues and objective engagement in different functional groups, as well as the relationship of engagement with the effectiveness of the employees and turnover in different divisions in the period before and after the research.


Keywords: engagement; work motivation; satisfaction; labor efficiency; turnover; business indicators; organizational loyalty; effectiveness.
