Employee voice (EV) and employee commitment (EC) are critical concepts in
people management in organizations across the world. There are various definitions
of EV and many types of EC in literature. Even though there is no agreed one
definition of EV and there are many different forms of EC, both concepts are
extremely important to the success of any business. This chapter aimed at exploring
the challenges associated with EV and EC across nations; therefore, a systematic
review of recent primary studies was adopted to meet the objectives of the chapter.
A total of 14 most relevant studies published in 2020 in English, 7 EV and 7 EC
studies, were vigorously selected for review across the world through Business
Source Complete, Science Direct, Emerald Insight, Oxford Brookes University Library Search, and Google Scholar databases. The search terms that were used to
gather relevant studies are “employee voice” and “employee commitment.” The
studies were picked from America, Australia, China, Germany, Indonesia, Malay�sia, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, South Korea, and Thailand because many scholars
have presented their interests in EV and EC and considered these countries more.
Nevertheless, the first debate that emerged from literature was about the definitions
of EVand EC in recent studies, given these concepts are considered across different
cultures. After content analysis, the results indicated that there are many factors in
recent studies, and these were discussed in this book chapter. Nevertheless, despite
the limitations associated with the study selection process that includes bias in
selecting the material to consider, the recent studies that were involved in this work
exposed EV and EC as a global emergency across industries.
