Resumen


The study aimed to determine the type of relationships that could exist between work design, engagement, and life satisfaction. This research was carried out in Madrid, Spain, where a random sample of 305 people answered a survey. All those constructs were assessed with the following instruments: Work Design Questionnaire (WDQ); Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES) in its short version of 9 items; and Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS). The Structural Equation Model (SEM) was decided on in order to determine how work design, engagement and life satisfaction are related. Results from SEM showed that work design indirectly affects life satisfaction and also can serve as a predictor of engagement. In other words, work design fully mediates the relationship between engagement and life satisfaction.
