This paper proposes a conceptual model in the domain of employee engagement by examining the research undertaken in the same area. A literature-based analysis is carried-out for proposing the conceptual model. The main aim of this study is to elucidate linkages between perceived organizational support (POS), Job characteristics (JC) and employee engagement through motivation while applying exchange ideology (EI) as a moderator in the context of public sector universities of developing countries. Employee engagement, especially faculty engagement, appears to be a missing link in Public sector universities of developing countries, which results in students’ disengagement in the class. Hence, affecting the overall quality of education. Correspondingly, it has the direct implications for the university graduates. The proposed conceptual model can help the public universities leadership to retain, accommodate and engage the most important assets of the university i.e. Faculty, for achieving organization success, growth and sustainability.
