I think that you have some good ideas, and at this point you should make the study fascinating by combining two concepts. For example, look into workforce diversity as it relates to stress management. This will make your study unique.

You should not choose a topic OTHER than these you listed here. Instead, go deep into one of them or a combination of them.

I think you might enjoy reading Jim Collins' Good to Great while you contemplate all the options you have.

Also, it is just as important to look at various research designs. I think you should choose one, such as case study, grounded theory, survey, etc., and then find 5 articles that use the design you are learning about. If you are still struggling to learn about the various designs, choose one and become an expert at it. Read lots of examples, and decide how you can use it to contribute to the field of HR.

So, it is just as important to think about research designs as it is to think about the topic. While you read recent HR articles that use your chosen research design (i.e. survey), you will become an expert and simultaneously you will see what is being done in the field of HR.

Just research about some dynamic between the organization and the employee, regarding the mutually beneficial relationship and what drives its continuance.

Do u feel this topic will be good, in terms of scope, ease of data collection etc.
