For some time organizations are committed with health promotion and workers welfare. Under this concern this study has been conducted; the aim was to describe and analyse the existing associations between emotional intelligence and engagement variables. The population were 150 workers from San Camilo Centre. The assessment instruments used were the scale of Emotional Intelligence (EIE-33), the scale of Emotional Intelligence (EIE-25), the Trait Meta-Mood Scale (TMMS-25) and the questionnaire of Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES). It is a descriptive correlational study. In San Camilo Centre workers there is association between emotional intelligence and engagement. Emotional intelligence, understood as the capacity to acquire skills or competencies for the adaptation to professional demands thus enhances a positive mental state work-related and this affects the quality of care and the assisted population health.
