Abstract: Employee commitment (EC) literature has grown very broad, and
there is a need to understand the current issues in this body of literature. This
systematic review aimed to examine current issues in EC. The research search
in several databases, including EBSCO Business Source Premier (BSP),
Business Source Complete (BSC), Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ),
Academic Search Complete (ASC), Science Direct (SD), Sage Journals (SJ),
Taylor and Francis Online (T&FO), Emerald Insight (EI), Wiley Online Library
(WOL) and ProQuest. The search in online databases found 86 studies and
through vigorous eight studies was selected for review. After analysing the
material, “human resource (HR) policies”, “wages/salaries”,
“management/supervisory and subordinates relationships”, “language
proficiency”, “quality service and units’ delivery”, “continuous improvement
organisations”, “emotional empowerment”, “job satisfaction” and “leadership
dimensions” emerged as important current issues. Also, the review found that
there is no relationship between EC and the economic crisis. The researcher
concludes that the literature on EC has grown very broad, and the researcher
should conduct regular reviews to update future researchers. However,
besides the limitation of a systematic process, the current reviewer
recommends that more studies should be done to establish the results of this
