Employees with high spirit and positive work behaviours are key assets to a corporation. Attracting and retaining such employees builds strong image of an organization. This study focuses on examining the link between IWE and OCBs and the mediation role of employee engagement among the female academic staff of Pakistani universities. A total of 212 respondents participated in this research. The findings suggest that IWE has a positive and significant impact on the citizenship behaviours of employees. The study also investigated the link between IWE and employee engagement and found a positive link between both of these variables. The mediation role of employee engagement between IWE and OCBs was examined and found to be significant. Employee engagement (provided with organisational psychological support and physical resources) acts as a liaison between IWE and OCBs.
