This research aims to examine the effects of Effort-Reward Imbalance on work engagement among women engineers in Malaysia. In this study we review the Effort-Reward Imbalance (ERI) model as the psychosocial work environment that consisted of three distinct dimensions, namely effort, reward and over-commitment. In this study, a total of 300 questionnaires were distributed to women engineers, but only 250 questionnaires have been completed by the respondents. The data were analyzed using correlation and multiple regression through SPSS version 22. The findings showed that all the three dimensions of ERI model (i.e. effort, rewards, and over commitment) are related to work engagement among women engineers. This study indicated that reward is the most dominant influence work engagement among women engineers. This paper discusses the implication of this study in the context of literature and suggests strategies to improve workplace engagement.
