Choo Ling Suan and Aizzat Mohd. Nasurdin

However, little research has been conducted on the predictors of work engagement in the hotel industry. Therefore, the objective of this study is to present a proposed model linking emotional intelligence and work engagement among customer-contact employees.

A review of the literature to support the proposed linkage within the Malaysian hotel industry is provided.
