"Building a win-win business case for sustainable wages"

This literature review is built around documenting a business case for creating good jobs that create mutual benefit to both employees and employers across major employment domains (pay, benefits, environment, and culture). The literature review supports a win-win business case for employers to enhance their bottom line by creating meaningful work for employees and offering competitive wages.

The measure of success used to evaluate the mutual benefit of a business adopting good jobs strategies is turnover rates and costs. When employers create good jobs, there is ample evidence that retention rates go up, turnover costs go down, and growth and profits follow (in most cases).
