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, Malaysia, 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.
