Triple Bottom Line: A Look at Talent Acquisition and Employee Engagement Using Grounded Theory

Hanan Alhaddi


This paper is based on a study that explored triple bottom line (TBL) as an emerging phenomenon using grounded
theory. Presented here are the results from the section concerning talent acquisition and employee engagement of the
original study. The presented results suggest that TBL Image (a term developed in the study) is positively associated
with talent acquisition and employee engagement. This is illustrated by the introduction of the TBL Image Diagram,
which provides an insight into how the image of the organization (as TBL-oriented) enables it to attract (and retain)
talent and improve employee engagement. This paper contributes to sustainability scholarship by presenting new
findings regarding TBL (as a sustainability-related construct) using grounded theory in light of the lack of empirical
research on TBL in the related literature. The study also contributes to human resource scholarship by providing new
insight into new elements that influence talent acquisition and employee engagement. Practitioners in human
resource management benefit from this study as the findings further their understanding of how to influence the
organization from an employee perspective through the TBL lens.
