Abstract: Team work engagement is one of the key factors to promote team effectiveness. Using job demand-control theory and multilevel method, this study aims to clarify two questions in team engagement literature. First, this study will examine the mediating role of job resource and emotion contagious between the actor’s engagement and partner’s engagement. Second, this study will investigate the boundary conditions of engagement crossover from multilevel perspective. We expect these findings will help to improve our understanding about the mechnism of work engagement crossover in teams and make contributions to managerial pracitice.

Key words: Work engagement, Crossover, Job resource, Emotion contagious
