A munkaerő-megtartás és a well-being kapcsolatának elemzése nemzetközi kutatásokban

Szisztematikus irodalmi áttekintés





employee well-being, workforce retention, commitment, systematic literature review


The COVID-19 pandemic has radically reshaped traditional human resource management practices. As a result of the changes, the role of employees’ physical and mental well-being in corporate strategies has increased. The study of employee well-being has a long history at the academic level, but so far only a few studies have been published in the context of labour retention. The practical significance of the topic is unquestionable. In this study, the authors examined the international literature on the topic through a systematic literature review. In their research, they sought answers to the questions of employee well-being on which a company-level workforce retention strategy can be built. The results draw attention to the need for further investigation of the topic, which is supported by the low number of hits closely related to the research question and the lack of a complex approach to the topic.
