The aim of this study is to understand how work engagement and team cohesion contribute to organizational performance in Philippine Health Insurance Corporation – Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (PhilHealth-BARMM) regional office. One hundred staff members, supervisors, and administrators of PhilHealth-BARMM, were given a measure of work engagement scale, team cohesion scale, and organizational performance. The results revealed that the respondents have moderate work engagement and moderate cohesion with the team. The PhilHealth-BARMM regional office yielded an average performance for the year 2020-2021. Correlation analysis reported that work engagement and team cohesion are positively related to organizational performance. An important implication of the study is that employees of PhilHealth-BARMM should assume the relevance of developing adequate and challenging work conditions, human resources practices and atmosphere in order to improve the overall efficiency of the organization.
