Employee engagement covers almost all parts of human resource management areas ever know.

In this paper, we have focused on this gap in the literature and have tried to establish a relationship between organisational culture and employee engagement. The emphasis of this research is to conjoint organisation culture and its components such as values, beliefs, ethics, communication with employee engagement.
