This study explores the relationship between multidimensional perception of organizational politics (POP) and employee engagement (EE), and how multidimensional political skill (PSKILL) moderates the relationship. 800 employees, drawn from three private sector organizations in Lagos, Nigeria, participated in the cross-sectional study. Two dimensions of POP were negatively related to EE while one was not. Three dimensions of PSKILL interacted with the significant POP dimensions to reduce the negative effects of POP on EE. The results highlight the need to utilize multidimensional POP and PSKILL in studies, and the need for engaged employees to possess political skill if they must be effective. Hence, organizations must encourage the development of PSKILL by engaged employees.
