Title

Sustainable HRM and well-being: systematic review and future research agenda

Abstract/Description

Sustainable HRM and workplace well-being have gained increased attention from researchers recently. Given this, the present paper attempts to undertake a systematic literature review to identify ways and means by which sustainable HRM and well-being are linked for better individual and organizational outcomes. The primary focus of this paper is to study the relationship between sustainable HRM and well-being, i.e., whether sustainable HRM predicts well-being at work? If yes, how and when this prediction takes place? Systematic computerized search and review were conducted for articles published until September 2021. One-twenty-one research articles were finally selected based on the set criteria and their relevance concerning the above-stated research objectives. Based on the selected research articles, it was found that sustainable HRM predicts well-being at work and can also negatively affect ill-being. However, our findings suggest that the area is largely underexplored despite a considerable gap for studying the relationship and its importance for solving 21st-century sustainability issues. Empirical work for investigating the said nexus is too rare. The present review identifies the significance of moving forward in the area with stronger research designs for determining causality of workplace well-being through sustainable HRM practices by considering various boundary conditions and intervening mechanisms.
