Abstract Nowadays religious organizations play a leading role in the third\n sector, contributing to maintaining the welfare state in a large number\n of countries in sectors such as health, education or social services,\n among others. These organizations provide a service to their users,\n aiming to transmit the predominant values in their mission statement and\n simultaneously promote both authenticity and work engagement in their\n employees. Indeed, the purpose of this article is to evaluate the link\n between human values and work engagement, as well as the mediating role\n of authenticity in this relationship. To this end, 938 workers of a\n Catholic religious organization, which constitutes a relatively\n unexplored context, is employed. To test the research model and\n hypotheses, this investigation uses PLS (Partial Least Squares). It\n covers two notable research gaps. First, the results confirm the direct\n links between human values, authenticity and work engagement within the\n context of religious organizations. Second, they provide evidence of the\n mediating role exercised by authenticity in the relationship between\n human values and work engagement.
