Business Consulting Agreement

I was given a non-competition agreement by my new employer and in
many parts of the document, it says, ‘I agree to do XYZ during all
times of my ENGAGEMENT with Company ABC.’

What does the term ‘engagement’ mean specifically? Does this refer to
just time spent working for the company or with company resources?

Thanks for the help

Engagement in this context generally means the period of time you are employed by them--the entire period of time, not just work hours. If you are employed from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017, for example, your engagement is that entire 12 month span.
