A total of 355 respondents interviewed form six pharmaceutical companies. After data screening 340 useable questionnaires received and proceeded for further analysis of the study. This study confirm that employees perceive good training opportunities from the organization, they are more engaged at work. The study also found that support from co- workers, more specifically from the supervisor is higher, the employee is obliged to pay back to the organization by engaging more at work. This is the proper implementation of the social exchange theory. The study revealed that emotional support was also a significant predictor of employee engagement in the context of the pharmaceutical industry in Thailand though the effects are comparatively lower than other two factors such as training and supervisor support.
