This paper examines the antecedents and consequences of job involvement using a sample of 339 participants out of which 228 were females, with an average age of 28 years, working in Romanian companies specialized in commerce, service delivery and IT. The various definitions of the term are identified and integrated along with the analysis of the two most frequently used measurements. Our research aimed to investigate job characteristics, extraversion, neuroticism, family to work conflict, perceived organizational support and ownership as antecedents of job involvement and burnout, professional satisfaction, general mental health, organizational commitment, work to family, professional performance and turnover intent, as its consequences. The findings of the study indicated that job involvement is influenced by job characteristics, neuroticism, family to work conflict, perceived organizational support and ownership and has a significant impact on burnout, professional satisfaction, general mental health, organizational commitment, work to family and professional performance. The data did not show any significant relationship between job involvement and extraversion, position in the company or turnover intent.
