Abstract [en]

Work engagement is important as it contributes performance. Previous studies have shown that blue-collar workers are less engaged than white-collar workers, which highlights the need to focus on ways to improve the work engagement of blue-collar workers. This paper tests whether different perceptions of job resources is an important driver of the differences in work engagement between white and blue-collar workers. Using a survey of 153 workers in a medium-sized manufacturing firm, the paper shows that job resources, especially work environment and career opportunities, have a great potential to increase the work engagement of blue-collar workers.
