Abstract

This study aims to examine the effect of job autonomy on proactive work behavior and to investigate the mediating role of work engagement in the relationship of job autonomy and proactive work behavior. This study involved 208 employees working in the private sector, public sectors, and government in Indonesia. Participants were taken using convenience sampling techniques through the distribution of questionnaires online. Data were analyzed using Structural Equation Model (SEM). This research shows that job autonomy directly influences work engagement and indirectly affects proactive work behavior through work engagement mediation. Our results found different results from previous studies, where job autonomy directly impacted proactive work behavior. Our results reveal the full mediation role of work engagement in the relationship between job autonomy and proactive work behavior.
