Abstract:  As a pertinent construct in academic and practical circle, employee well-being (EWB) refers to an umbrella concept which pays equal attention to product/process approaches and combines objective/subjective perspectives. However, such factors as unclear definitions and scattering conclusions are hindering the advancement of Chinese indigenous studies on EWB. Therefore, this paper, based on the review of current studies on EWB, observes that for one thing, definitions of EWB vary from subjective, psychological to integrated perspectives, which are further differentiated in dimensions and measurements as well; for another, the formation and mechanism are multilevel, in which traditional Chinese culture plays a moderating role. The research on EWB in the Chinese context can be furthered in the following aspects as concept and dimension, research design, multilevel theory, inter-individual research paradigm and intervention strategies.

Key words: employee well-being, multilevel model, the Chinese context
