Mapping review on well-being research in the temporary work context by S. Imhof and Prof. Dr. M. Andresen
Susanne Imhof and Prof. Dr. Maike Andresen recently published a mapping review on well-being research in the temporary work context and propose an agenda for future research. They show that analyses considering country-specific circumstances and employment-specific characteristics of particular atypical employment situations are needed. Secondly, a more comprehensive portfolio of employment-specific and individual antecedents would help with gaining deeper insights into temporary workers' well-being situation. In addition, effects of well-being on attitudinal and behavioural outcomes should be analysed to demonstrate the return on investment of organizations' well-being enhancing activities. Finally, well-being oriented HR practices and their implementation in the temporary work context are part of the proposed research agenda. The study will soon be published in The International Journal of Human Resource Management and is already available online via: http://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/9Phv5U5C2UW3JuX3CP8T/full
