This study focuses on four knowledge fields (Human Resources Management, Employee Outcomes, Governmental Support, and Organizational Performance) which have been the center and attraction for many researches and studies. The growing awareness of the crucial role of human capital as the engine of organizations to sustain the competitive advantage, and the management of this worthy resource can lead to success.
