In this paper, the researcher used a relational approach to investigate how employee perceptions of performance management practices, their relationships with two types of managers—line and senior managers—are related to employees’ job engagement and their intention to stay or quit. Based on an employee survey (n = 86) in a multinational organization operating in the Republic of Ireland, the study found that the employees’ perceptions of performance management practices was positively related to the both outcome variables. The study also found that relationships with senior managers and line management were positively related to these outcome variables. In addition, this study found that employee engagement was observed to be stronger among newer employees.
