Employment Relations in a Changing World Economy. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: In order to address contemporary issues, industrial relations as a field of study will have to take an increasingly international and comparative dimension. Accordingly, this text looks at the critical role that employment relations play in firm performance and industry competitiveness worldwide. The essays employ a common framework to examine changes in the employment practices of 11 OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries: the United States; the United Kingdom; Canada; France; Germany; Italy; Spain; Norway; Sweden; Austria; and Japan. They constitute the first phase in a large ongoing project at the Centre for Industrial Performance at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to update the understanding of comparative industrial relations and human resource policies. The authors first identify a representative set of employment practices and the changes they are undergoing across different national settings. By collaborating, the contributors seek to clarify the dynamics of employment relations across the world and to set the terms of reference for a new generation of international comparative employment research.
