Abstract

This study examines the direct effect of perceived organisational support (POS), work place environment (WPE) on job engagement (JE) and moderating role of employee job attitude (JA) on the relationship between organisational supports (POS), work place environment (WPE) and job engagement (JE). In this study survey method was conducted with a sample size of 226 respondents across the total population of journalists, which were analysed using PLS-SEM version 4.0.9.6. The findings of this study established that, the relationship between POS and JE was supported, while that of WPE reported an insignificant relationship, hence, rejected. Furthermore, the results revealed that job attitude moderate the relationship between POS and JE. However, job attitude does not moderate the association between WPE and job engagement. The findings offered interesting and significant avenues for future research for academics as well as useful managerial implications for managers and decision-makers in the Nigerian journalism industry. Therefore, in order to encourage journalistic engagement, corporate policies and strategies should prioritize WPE features such as culture and other additional organizational settings. These should be evaluated, while also taking the job attitude into consideration as well.
