Employee engagement is an important part of human resource management that offers conducive platform for business to cope with uncertain conditions and as well provide opportunity for business to grow. Employee engagement is new practice in human resources that is used by organizations as a panacea for survival through uncertain and challenging industrial environments. Notwithstanding, studies over employee engagement and the predicting factors of employee engagement (i.e., core self-evaluation and psychological climate) are few in the academic realm of hospitality and tourism. Therefore, this study examines the effect of core self-evaluation and psychological climate on employee engagement among hotel employees in Lagos, Nigeria. A survey research was distributed among 150 hotel employees. However only 145 questionnaires were returned and usable which made up 96.7% of response rate. The findings of this study revealed that, both core self-evaluation and psychological climate have significant effects on employee engagement. The findings of this study imply that, the hotel environment must be made conducive for employees to help them evaluate themselves positively so that employees can be effectively engaged with their work in the hotels. Conclusions and discussions were inferred in details in the study.
