The findings, however, will not only be of value to the organization. It is hoped that they will also contribute to the existing literature on employee engagement. The literature has pointed to a large number of studies on employee engagement conducted in the UK and the US. However, there has been little research conducted in Oman. Therefore, it is timely to conduct this study to see whether the factors that have been identified in previous research can be generalised to the context of the proposed study. Apart from attempting to test and validate existing theories on factors related to employee engagement, the study will also attempt to uncover factors that may be unique to the context of study. This will perhaps contribute to a better understanding of how different situational factors relate to different levels of engagement.

In return, managers are able to use bureaucratic rules to stifle self-management and compel employees to follow their direction (Mullins, 2007).
