Abstract

The trust relationships that exist in an organisation and their impact on employee engagement have been explored during this research that was conducted in an Irish private organisation. The researcher used qualitative research methods in the form of semi structured interviews to gain an in depth and personal perspective of this complex and intimate topic.

To achieve this objective, the researcher must first express the various facets of trust, employee engagement and organisational culture and commitment. The researcher concluded that whilst levels of trust with management can be low employees had high levels of trust with their colleagues and were proud of the company and the work they achieve. Half of the participants expressed that they felt engaged with the remainder expressing the opposite, the factors that lead to these various engagement levels are discussed throughout the research.
