Abstract:

This study has been conducted to identify the effect of employees’ engagement, physical fitness including their style (behaviour) on job performance and absenteeism from work in Saudi Arabia. This is a significant study due to the fact that absenteeism from the work has a direct effect on productivity and organisations’ performance. Absenteeism is a continuous pattern of absence from duty without a reasonable excuse and leads to poor performance. The study encompasses an investigation on the impact of the above three independent variables through empirical research and data analysis. This study is carried out by the survey method and is empirical in nature. The tool used in this study for analysis is the regression model developed by Sir Francis Galton. The results show a positive relationship between independent variables (employee engagement and healthy behaviour) and the dependent variables (job performance). However, there is not a strong relationship between the third independent variable (physical health) and job performance. The second dependent variable which is absenteeism and result shows no relationship with any independent variables (employee engagement, physical fitness and healthy behaviour).

Keywords: Management Performance, Employee Engagement, Physical Fitness, Healthy Behaviour
