We investigated the relationship between workplace fun and work engagement as well as the mediating role of workplace guanxi. Participants were 272 Master of Business Administration students at a Chinese university who were working in various enterprises. The results of structural equation modeling revealed that workplace fun was positively related to work engagement and that this direct relationship was mediated by workplace guanxi. Our study is the first to empirically test the role of workplace guanxi as a mediator of the workplace fun–work engagement link. Implications of the findings and suggestions for future research are discussed.
