When the economy is in such bad shape, any of us who has a job is fortunate. Human resource managers and practitioners are concerned with whether employees are contributing to the organization’s Strategy, goals, and priorities or not, as well as how to proceed with the recruiting and selection process, employee engagement, and training and development programs, as a consequence of the pandemic of Covid-19. Organizations all over the world are in a difficult situation; for the first time in history, the value of a barrel of oil dropped to less than zero on April 20, 2020; the only explanation for this is the ongoing global lockdown. The actual workplace has been transformed into a virtual workplace, and HR managers are now pondering how to effectively involve workers. The aim of this paper was to clarify how employee engagement affects organizational efficiency within Covid-19 pandemic and shed the light on all the factors and provide a set of managerial implications to the professionals.
