ABSTRACT
Engagement continues to play an important role in many organizations. The construct has been associated with various organizational benefits and, as such, has the potential for being an organization development (O.D.) tool. Contrary to the portrayal of engagement in several studies, this article contends that there is a cooperative relationship between the climatic conditions for engagement and organization-provided tactical tools. The establishment of this relationship will 1) enhance goal achievement and 2) provide support for a continued state of engagement.
