Perceived Supervisor Support, Work Engagement and Career-Related Self-Efficacy: An Empirical Study

Emre Burak EKMEKCIOGLU [1]


The purpose of this study is to examine the mediating effect of career-related self-efficacy in the relationship between the perceived supervisor support and work engagement. A cross-sectional research design was performed in the present study. Data were collected from a total of 184 participants employed full time in the manufacturing sector in Ankara. Structural equation modeling approach was used to estimate direct and indirect effects between variables. The results indicated that employees' perception of supervisor support is a positive predictor of their work engagement. Moreover, career-related self-efficacy was found to have a mediating role in the relationship between perception of supervisor support and work engagement. This study revealed that the perception of supervisor support is an important predictor in increasing employees' work engagement and the key importance of career-related self-efficacy in this relationship. In addition, the theoretical and practical contributions of this study, its limitations and implications for future research on the perception of supervisor support and work engagement were discussed.
