Abstract
Engagement is a concept that is hard to define and easy to realize. Engagement is motivational, and this motivation helps individuals to allocate their resources for their job performance and use those resources intensively and consistently. So, one can say that employee engagement should have been correlated with some variables related with work and organization. In the academic literature, engagement is a relatively high focused area, and it is said to be related to but distinct from other constructs in organizational behavior. Engagement's casual and correlational relationships with the various concepts such as burnout, job demands and resources, organizational commitment, job involvement, workaholism, job satisfaction, for example, are much researched. However, researches indicate different results. This chapter aims to systematically review the aforementioned concepts relationship to engagement and eventually put forward, if any, conflicts and resemblances among previous researches.
