The main objective of this research was to determine the relationship between corporate citizenship, organizational justice and work engagement mediated by organizational trust among the employees in commercial banks in Malaysia. This study was motivated by the increase in the number of employees being terminated by their employers in the Malaysian commercial banks due to absenteeism, lack of integrity, missing from the workplace, unpunctuality, failure to complete assignments, frequent medical leave and absent without leave which signal the lack of work engagement among the employees. In times of stiff competition, work engagement is vital for ensuring performance and profit for commercial banks. Seven main hypotheses and 14 sub-hypotheses were developed. Corporate citizenship had four dimensions: perceived economic, legal, ethical and discretionary. Organizational justice had three dimensions: distributional, procedural and interactional; and work engagement had three dimensions: vigor, absorption and dedication. The study’s sample comprised of commercial bank employees and out of the 411 responses received, only 396 were accepted and used for analysis. This study found that corporate citizenship and organizational justice have significant effects on work engagement, and organizational trust plays an important mediating role in the corporate citizenship-organizational justice-work engagement relationship. However, organizational trust has an insignificant effect on work engagement. It is suggested to the management of commercial banks to increase activities in corporate citizenship, and practice fairness, which can increase the level of organizational trust in enhancing work engagement. Future researchers can include a new variable such as job satisfaction, and expand the research area to other industries.
