Author: Frost, Leah

School/Discipline: School of Psychology
Abstract: In recent times, there has been an increased focus on engagement and enablement research and their association with employee wellbeing, performance and productivity outcomes. Despite mounting evidence on the positive outcomes of a highly engaged and enabled workforce, there is limited knowledge about the extent to which sociodemographic factors are associated with engagement outcomes, and even more limited, is how these factors impact employee enablement outcomes. Research continues to emphasise the importance of increasing evidence-based knowledge of the antecedents to work stress and burnout, particularly in high risk industries. This review analyses the literature on employee engagement and enablement in the workplace and the sociodemographic factors associated with them in the high-risk industry of farming and agriculture. Recommendations are presented for future research into how sociodemographic factors associated with employee engagement and enablement may aid in the development of workplace interventions to improve wellbeing and productivity outcomes.
