This paper will focus on the idea of leveraging athletic team characteristics within the workplace in an attempt to alleviate disengagement amongst males. In order to understand what this disengagement is and how to alleviate it, three central themes, motivation and its relationship with engagement, engagement itself, and the power of identification in organizational engagement, will be discussed. Lastly, recommendations developed from a synthesis of engagement and athletic research will be presented.
