Acquiring international attention, employee engagement is gaining momentum and popularity. According to Thayer (2008), the concept of employee engagement is speedily gaining importance in the workplace; and within their orgainization, employers can create a positive psychological environment by identifying the factors that can boost employee engagement. As defined by Right Management (2006), true engagement is every person in the organisation being understanding and committed to the success of the business, creating job satisfaction and developing aspects of commitment, pride and advocacy about the organisation's products and brand. Although the organization is blamed for not making a process work, it is essential to manage effective communication and involve the employees and align them with the organisation. According to Konrad (2006), employee engagement can lead to a win-win situation for both employees and managers.

METHODS/STATISTICAL ANALYSIS Data on demographic information about the participants collected through a survey. A well-established survey instrument called Gallup's Q12 is used to measure employee engagement.

FINDINGS IT sector organizations should ensure a dynamic work place relationship which will allow the employees to express themselves physically, cognitively and emotionally during their role performance. This study aims to measure the engagement level of employees and to identify the factors that need to be improved to increase the level of engagement. The relationship between internal communication and employee engagement within the workplace provides quantifiable evidence. The importance and prominence of organization-employee and supervisor-employee relationships within the work place is unveiled from the results of the study. From the results of the data analysis, we can conclude that the employees know what is expected of them at work and the organization encourages the sharing of information, knowledge and resources.
