My research project
Linkage between employee wellbeing and productivity in North-west China's Cashmere industry
The literature on employee well-being and productivity has generally assumed that employee well-being as an organisational asset is among the crucial factors that could affect manufacturing production within industry. The in-depth relationship between employee well-being and productivity performance in labour intensive industries has not been sufficiently investigated, especially in the cashmere market. My research attempts to fill this gap by exploring and understanding the correlation coefficient between productivity and employee well-being in the Chinese cashmere market, developing and applying large data sets consistent of both productivity and labour well- being.
This study will supplement and extend prior knowledge in the area of labour-intensive industries’ employee well-being and productivity, especially in the Chinese cashmere industry market. Contributions of possible ways to improve productivity through enhancing employee well-being will be provided to both scholars and industries.
