Abstract: Despite being known to the public ever since it had been introduced by human resources consulting firms, the concept of employee involvement is fairly new among academic research community. It is agreed by both groups of human resource management academics and practitioners that employees’ behavior at work can be explained by the fundamental concept. However, there are various concepts and meanings of employee involvement being applied nowadays. The interesting employee involvement concept, however, is still vaguely defined. Its definition introduced by western academics has to be modified before being applied in Malaysia, to suit the local religion and culture. The purpose of this literature review is to come up with an employee involvement concept that is suitable for local engineers with diverse cultural background, by studying and examining the empirical and conceptual differences in defining employee involvement concept.
