This study aims to investigate the impacts of training and development, personality, and organizational culture on IWB. Quantitative method was used where a set of questionnaire was distributed among 200 employees at one manufacturing company located in Kedah, Malaysia. The results presented significant relationships between training and development and IWB (r=0.65, p<0.01); personality and IWB (r=0.64, p<0.01); and organizational culture and IWB (r=0.70, p<0.01). Thus, the appropriate activities should be designed to enhance IWB of employees in the aspects of training and development, personality and organizational culture.
