Abstract: The advent of liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation has made it indispensable for the organizations to focus on using their human resources in a way that would be in the best interest of the individual as well as the organization. One such issue that is seriously being looked into by the organizations to steer through the cut-throat competition is the levels of engagement of the employees and the way elevated engagement levels contribute towards the increased organization commitment. The same holds true for educational institutions as well. The educational institutions in any country have a societal responsibility along with the responsibility of creating young intellectual minds capable of contributing towards economic growth and development. This research paper aims at investigating into the relationship of engagement of employee with commitment as is measured from three dimensions namely-commitment towards the organization, commitment towards teaching and commitment towards the workgroup they are associated with. The current research focuses on the teachers of 10 engineering colleges in Hyderabad, Telangana State. Employee engagement was taken to be the independent variable and employee commitment is taken to be the dependent variable. The researcher made use of descriptive research design and a structured questionnaire was administered to 250 teachers of the above said engineering colleges. Chi-square tests were used to examine the association between the variables in question and T-test and F-test and MANOVA were resorted to for examining the extent of relationship between engagement and various dimensions of commitment. The research findings indicate notable association between gender, marital status and present experience on employee engagement. However, it is found that there is no association between the level of functioning and engagement and commitment of teachers. The output of MANOVA indicate a positive connection between engagement and commitment of teachers in the educational institutions.
