The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between transformational and transactional leadership styles on employee engagement at lntel Malaysia. This study examines the predictive ability to gauge the ability of leadership styles to positively predict aspects of employee
engagement. However, it would also want to predict if it's transformational or transactional leadership as the more effective style as it will have more predictive power. This study is critical to lntel Malaysia as we would like future
steps to be taken to ensure that appropriate future action will be taken to ensure that employees are kept engaged at a high level. Hence, two research questions were developed to achieve the objective of this study. Quantitative study using a structured questionnaire was used to collect the
data for the hypothesis testing. The population for this study was the exempt level of the FES Organization at lntel Penang. A hardcopy questionnaire was distributed to the sample of employees in various FES Organizations after the
face validity was conducted. The analysis found that both transformational and transactional leadership positively portrayed employee engagement, where transactional show more
effect on employee engagement as compared to transformational leadership. Implications, limitations and future directions for leadership research were discussed.
