Since individuals are the cornerstones of every innovation, this research focuses on employees innovative work behaviours (IWB). HRM has proven to influence employees' attitudes and behaviours, thus becomes of utmost important in the context of IWB. This systematic literature review seeks to detect all possible HRM practices that significantly influence IWB and in which way. Eight HRM practices and their level of influence on IWB could be identified and reviewed in the context of various theories and perspectives: (1) autonomy, (2) task composition, (3) training & development, (4) reward, (5) job demand, (6) feedback (7) job (in)security, and (8) job rotation. These findings were further critically discussed, concluding in recommendations for further research and implications for organisations.
