Abstract:

Transformational leadership is needed today to facilitate employee engagement and increase productivity. This quantitative survey study aimed to determine the connection concerning transformational leadership and engagement among personnel in the branch- banking sector in Bangladesh. The independent variable was transformational leadership, which relates to the capability of the leader to provide an environment that engages their employees. The dependent variable was work engagement, which pertains to the level of commitment among employees in the organization. The main research question examined the correlation between the study variables among employees in the branch- banking sector in Bangladesh. The outcomes of this study revealed that in a work environment, applying transformational leadership style does not assure that the employees will be fully engaged. However, the results of the current study are not aligned with the existing body of literature on transformational leadership and employee engagement.
