Abstract: The current study is amongst the first to delineate an empirical relationship between the human resource (HR) practices and employee engagement. Since HR practices are perceived as organisational intention, its influence on engagement, a much desired work attitude assumes great significance in the globalised business environment prevalent today. The study findings point to a positive and significant influence of high compensation and involvement in decision-making in propagating engagement amongst the workforce. However, gender was only found to moderate the relationship between involvement in decision-making and engagement. The study contributes towards enriching the existing literature available on employee engagement as well as on the influence of HR practices on employee work attitudes. Apart from that, it also recommends suitable managerial implications that can guide the information technology firms in India in gaining an engaged workforce.
