The aim of this study was to test whether there are differences in work engagement between white-collar and blue-collar workers, and if there is a difference in predictors structure for two groups. Predictors were core self-evaluations and three critical psychological states from Job characteristic model (Hackman and Oldham, 1980). The data was collected from 82 workers for each group. As expected, white-collar workers reported higher leves of work engagement, in total result and on each of the component, respectively vigor, dedication and aborption, than blue-collar workers. Multiple hierarchical analyses showed difference between predictors structure for two groups. Significant predictors for white-collar workers are core self-evaluations, experienced meaningfulness and experienced responsibility, and only experienced meaningfulness for blue-collar workers.
