Common Concepts, Propositions, or Theories in Literature Review

Institutional negotiations are one of the common concepts that appear in the literature review. As noted by Keune, and Marginson (2013), negotiations that move away from principal intercultural themes are seen to lack characterization. The theme also appears in (Walker, 2015). Successful communication and negotiation is noted as one of the resource’s central aim (Walker, 2015).

Employee well-being is also a common concept in the literature review of the article based on the impact of recession on employees. This literature review also highlights the rates of unemployment as a consequent of economic depression and lastly job pressure (Helen Russell and Frances McGinnity, 2013). This is comparable to industrial relations which as a concept emerges from the literature review and is tied international industrial relations (Geppert et al., 2014).

Employee relations additionally features as a concept in industrial relations and focuses on relationships among employees, the government and employers (Geppert et al., 2014). The concept can be compared to multinational corporations that also emerge in evaluating the influences of home and host countries and the factors that affect the market economies (Geppert et al., 2014).

Work conditions in relation to trade unions are also a concept advanced in the review. Work conditions are tied to factors such as wages and employee rights among other factors (Geppert et al., 2014). Work conditions as an idea can be tied income inequality in(Cobb, 2016). Income inequality is evaluated to be among the key problems in the world today. The review also examines wages, unionization, and employee relations. The decrease in unionization is noted as a contributing factor to the inequality that characterizes the labor market today. It also notes to contribute to a diminished bargaining power for employees (Cobb, 2016). The review also examines organizational governance mechanism and the subsequent approaches aimed at dealing with income inequality or wage difference among employees(Cobb, 2016).
