Content: To harness the full potential of workforce and increase organizational performance, organizations need to promote positive psychological health. The newly emerging field of Positive Psychology has emphasized the development of Positive Psychological Capital (i.e. Hope, Optimism, Self- Efficacy and Resilience) to increase employee engagement and Job Satisfaction among the employees. It is vital that organizations develop these positive Psychological Capital factors among their employees (Luthans, Avey & Patera,2008). The presence of Psychological factors can lead to increase in employee engagement and also lead to Job-Satisfaction among employees.
The aim of the present study was to study the relationship between Psychological Capital, Employee Engagement and Job Satisfaction, as well as to determine whether Psychological Capital and Employee Engagement hold predictive value for job satisfaction. The study was conducted for call centre employees from the metropolitan area in Mumbai. The measuring instruments included a demographic questionnaire, the Psychological capital questionnaire, the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale and the Job Satisfaction Scale.
The data processing is yet in progress, however it is speculated that there will be a positive relationship between Psychological Capital and Employee Engagement and Psychological Capital and Job Satisfaction.
