Abstract: This study aims to focus on the relationship between organisational justice, trust, and work engagement by testing the impact of organisational justice on work engagement through the mediating role of trust. Data from this study were collected from 396 employees working in different sectors in Turkey. Results showed that: 1) organisational justice has impact on the work engagement; 2) trust has impact on the work engagement; 3) organisational justice influences the level of trust; 4) trust has a partial mediation role between organisational justice and work engagement. The results bring theoretical and practical implications for organisation theory and behaviour research by broadening the scope of research from understanding basic dimensions to designing an extended framework that connects justice, trust and engagement. Accordingly, organisations need to reconsider or revise their managerial approaches in order to achieve increased organisational justice, trust, and work engagement.
