Neuroscience research has its origins in clinical application but is now emerging as a method to provide better understanding and insights into the cognitive-related aspects that affect people at work and in the workplace. Detailed observation highlights that not one day passes without the mass media referring to neuroscience as the solution to a variety of problems arising from non-clinical disciplines. A broad research approach into the many disciplines defined and prefixed by "neuro" is necessary in order to provide an in-depth understanding of the concepts that underlie such transformational disciplines as Nneuro-strategy, Neuro-leadership, Neuro-marketing, Neuro-economics, and Neuro-education. Purpose: The current study aims at determining a neuro-scientific strategy for conceptualizing healthier work outcomes based on human resource management. Methodology: This study is a qualitative study that uses secondary data from the literature and provides a descriptive analysis of the neuro-scientific approaches toward human resource management in order to predict better workplace outcomes. The method for completing the data search on the database used neuro-scientific predictions about, workers, work outcomes, neuroscientific management, and human resource management. Results and implications: The study demonstrates and intellectualises that neuro-scientific approaches would provide insights into human resource management which would bring about healthier work outcomes. The study results support the benefit of creating a structured method derived from classical methods of neuroscience in order to investigate a transformational neuroscientific approach and to better understand human responses and strengths through a neuroscientific approach. Conclusion: The study brings new insights to Human Resource Management at work that enhances the quality of Human Resource Management in the workplace.
