A target sample of 258 respondents drawn from a sampling comprising top, supervisory, and lower cadre employees was obtained using stratified and simple random sampling techniques. From the top management, a census was used to obtain all the 30 respondents. From the supervisory and lower cadre employees’ strata, a proportionate allocation was used to select a 61 middle managers and 167 lower cadre employees (representative sample from each) and the data collected by use of questionnaires. Data was analysed using descriptive, correlation and multiple linear regression analyses. Findings of the study indicated that the civil service employees at Kakamega regional Headquarters experience high physical engagement from their superiors. As a results, it was found that their job performance had increased considerably. Further, the study also revealed a strong positive and significant correlation between physical engagement and job performance.
