Abstract

This study aims to examine the role of work engagement as a mediator in the relationship between future time perspective (FTP) and lateness attitude. We draw on Conservation of Resource theory to explain the relationship. Data were collected from civil servants working in two health facilities owned by one local government. Results showed that work engagement partially mediated the relationship between future time perspective and lateness attitude. The results of this study can be used as an input for companies to increase work engagement level, specifically by enabling supervisors to coach their subordinates to focus on plans and future goals and to keep rehearsing the goals and plans to enhance their future time perspective. The theoretical and practical implications of the findings are then discussed.
