Abstract: Although interest in the subject of human-resource marketing is growing among researchers and practitioners, there have been remarkably few studies on the effects on employees of how benevolent their organization is. This article looks at the link between the presumption of organizational benevolence and the well-being of employees at work. The results of an empirical study of 595 employees show that the presumption of organizational benevolence is positively linked to employee well-being. The effect is indirect, as it is mediated by the perceived level of organizational support. The existence of a link between employee well-being and intention to quit the company is also confirmed. Keywords Human-resource marketing, presumption of organizational benevolence, well-being at work, perceived organizational support, intention to leave the job. List of abbreviations WB Well-being POB Presumption of organizational benevolence POS Perceived organizational support
