This research aims to contribute to the area of Employee Voice and its relevance and impact on Employee Engagement during COVID-19 global pandemic taking an employee-centric approach for expatriates, specifically Spanish nationals, working remotely for multinationals companies based in Dublin (Ireland). The epistemology orientation taken is mainly a constructive interpretivism focused on the thinking and feeling that underpins people’s behaviour and the subjective ways in which they experience their world. This approach considers an online questionnaire with a mixture of closed-ended and open-ended questions following a mixed method research methodology. The questionnaire is broken down into three sections. The first part is to understand the current employee engagement level. The second part is defined to measure the six key management functions that are impacting the employee engagement and the third part is created to understand directly how the employee voice is impacting Spanish employees’ engagement during the COVID-19 period.
