Drawing on seminal theory in each area as well as current literature a link is established between them concerning how to best implement policies for greater employee productivity. Commitment is examined in terms of benefits of commitment, classification tests, and classification systems, culminating in the Meyer and Allen (1991) model. Employee retention is examined in terms of benefits, conceptual models, and strategies to help increase retention. Group dynamics is discussed in terms of concept of the team, characteristics, and influence of power dynamics on groups.
