Employee engagement is postulated as a holistic construct with cognitive, emotional and behavioural aspects. The study tries to determine the reliability and validity of two scales of engagement: the 9 – item Utrecht work engagement scale (UWES) and the 11-item Saks (2006) scale. To establish the predictive validity of the two scales, the incremental effect of engagement measured using Saks (2006) scale on OCB behavior is also measured, the establishment of convergent, discriminant and predictive validity of the scales will help clarity the conceptual status of engagement and can also help managers in their efforts to improve employee engagement levels. The paper proposes to explore the construction similarity in two scale and adaptation on Indian population and discusses the plan and methodology for the conduction on a study on the same.
