Abstract: The objective of this study is to investigate the relationship between satisfaction and performance, when preceded by employee engagement. Specifically, it examines the relation of job satisfaction and company perceived performance after the influence of the three dimensional concept of employee engagement (vigour, dedication and absorption) on job satisfaction. In order to accomplish this goal, a literature review was undertaken to support the conceptual model and hypotheses. Data was collected from a sample of line managers of several major companies in Portugal. Results show, on the one hand, that vigour and dedication are related with job satisfaction, but absorption does not make a significant contribution. On the other, job satisfaction influences company perceived performance. Some theoretical and empirical implications are discussed.
