Job involvement

Job involvement is the degree to which an employee identifies with his or her job, actively participates in it, and considers his or her job performance to be important to his or her self-worth. Employees with a high level of job involvement strongly identify with and really care about the kind of work they do. Their positive attitude leads them to contribute to their work in positive ways. High levels of job involvement have been found to be related to fewer absences, lower resignation rates, and higher employee engagement with work.
