Ninety-four full-time employees were surveyed for their work engagement in Macau, China. A newly created work engagement measure with three dimensions, i.e., Cognitive, Emotional, and Physical Work Engagement, was tested for its validity and reliability. Divergent validity was tested with burnout, and convergent validity was tested with another work engagement scale. Significant correlations in the expected directions supported the validity of the new scales. Concurrent validity was established by the “known-groups” method, in which the two groups’ mean scores were significantly different in the predicted directions. The new scales also had very good reliabilities, which ranged from .85 to .88.
