This global outbreak has formed new norms in economic activities, which led to the changes in employees' expectations and work engagement in the new paradigm. The study of expectations which include job autonomy, social support, policies & procedures, compensation, and job security for work engagement are relevant subjects to be explored in the pandemic setting. The study analyses the relationship between employee expectations, work engagement, and moderating role of job satisfaction amongst employees in the banking sector. There were forty-eight respondents from the selected bank were participated in the online questionnaire. The result of this study showed that job autonomy, social support, policies and procedures, compensation, and job security have been found to be positively associated with work engagement among bank employees.
