Work engagement continues to capture considerable attention due to the strong links established between engagement and performance. However, the role religiosity plays in enhancing work engagement is neglected in the current literature. Our study addresses this important gap by demonstrating the role religiosity plays in facilitating engagement. Theoretically underpinned by the job demands-resources theory, our study investigates the relationship between religiosity, work engagement, and turnover intention. In doing so, it explores the interaction effect between religiosity as a personal resource and workload in the prediction of work engagement. Drawing on a sample of 383 employees from the telecom sector in Jordan, our findings support the research model and confirm the importance of this new consideration. The results of this study contribute to the engagement literature and suggest that both HR practitioners and line managers can recognise religiosity as an important personal resource to enhance engagement at work and employee well-being.
