The ultimate goal of this research undertaking was to identify the best fit model involving the following exogenous variables: transformational leadership, motivation, and human resource management practices to endogenous variable – work engagement. A survey questionnaire was issued to the various large retail employees in Region XII, Philippines with 425 respondents for the purpose of data collection. The research method used in the analysis was descriptive — correlation design was used to find the best fit model through structural equation modeling. The results revealed that the model presented positive relationship between transformational leadership, motivation and human resource management practices and work engagement. Nevertheless, the three established exogenous variables of transformational leadership, motivation, and human resource management practices emerged as the primary predictors of work engagement, taking into account their observed variables as depicted in the study's final and best fit model.
