V. HRM practices in Various Companies and


1) Towards a Taxonomy of Approaches for Measuring

Organizational Knowledge


2) Research and Practice in Human Resource Management

3) HRM Practices
4. The Effects of Human Resource Management
Practices on Productivity

---- Abstract -----

Increasingly, firms are considering the adoption of new work practices,

such as problem-solving teams, enhanced communication with workers,
employment security, flexibility in job assignments, training workers for
multiple jobs, and greater reliance on incentive pay. This paper provides
empirical evidence to address the question: do these human resource
management practices improve worker productivity? For this study, we
constructed our own data base through personal site visits to 26 steel
plants which contained one specific steelmaking process, and collected
longitudinal data with precise measures on productivity, work practices,
and the technology in these production lines. The empirical results
consistently support the following conclusion: the adoption of a coherent
system of these new work practices, including work teams, flexible job
assignments, employment security, training in multiple jobs, and
extensive reliance on incentive pay, produces substantially higher levels
of productivity than do more 'traditional' approaches involving narrow
job definitions, strict work rules, and hourly pay with close supervision.
In contrast, adopting individual work practice innovations in isolation has
no effect on productivity. We interpret this evidence as support for recent
theoretical models which stress the importance of complementarities

5. Relationships Between Selected Human Resource Management

Practices and Dairy Farm Performance

The objectives were to identify relationships between human resource management

(HRM) practices used by dairy farm businesses and the productivity and profitability
of the dairies. Explanatory variables were the following practices: training, job
descriptions, standard operating procedures, milk quality incentives, and the
employment of Spanish-speaking employees. The dependent variables were return on
assets, return on equity, rolling herd average, and somatic cell count. The effects of
individual HRM practices were analyzed to test for means separation between groups
that "used" and those that "did not use" HRM practices. The results did not support
expectations that differences exist between the groups. However, a significant positive
relationship was found between return on equity and the use of continued training
(used = 10.61%; did not use = –62.38%), and a significant negative relationship was
found between the use of standard operating procedures for feeding and somatic cell
count (used = 263,000; did not use = 214,000). Profitability and productivity did not
seem to be major factors in producers’ decisions to use or not use HRM practices.

8. The Effects of Human Resource Management Practices on Firm

Performance - Preliminary Evidence from Finland


This paper presents the first empirical evidence on the nature and effects
of human resource practices (HRM) in the Finnish manufacturing sector.
In the analysis, we use the novel survey on HRM practices, based on a
representative random sample from the population of the Finnish
manufacturing firms who had 50 or more employees in 2005. In the
sample, we have firm-level information on several HRM and employee
participation practices of 398 firms, which is 38% of the firms in the
population and almost 50% of the survey respondents. To study how
HRM practices affect the level of firm productivity, we first combined the
HRM survey data with financial statement data and then estimated cross-
sectional and panel data estimators for the Cobb-Douglas production
functions. We find that both the incidence of employee participation
practices and the incidence of HRM tools have increased in the
manufacturing sector from 2002 to 2005. The empirical findings support
the view of a positive association with the HRM practices and the level of
firm productivity. Perhaps more importantly, however, we find that not
all forms of employee financial and decision-making participation
practices have favourable productivity effects : consultative committee
and profit sharing scheme has a positive effect, but other practices do not
have statistically significant effects.

9. Best Human Resource Management Practices in Latin America

Latin America today presents a dynamic but challenging business
landscape. Although foreign investment in the region has risen, Asia’s
increasing role in the global economy is a challenge to Latin America’s
competitiveness. At the same time, Translatina firms – Latin American
trans-national companies – continue to grow in capital and influence.
This original collection explores the tensions between the strategic HRM
policies demanded by global competition and local approaches rooted in
Latin American cultural values. The book uses a selection of real-life case
studies, plus quantitative data, to understand the unique challenges of
human resource management in Latin America, exploring:
• the relationship between political, economic and social forces and HR
• lessons from successful HRM practices in the region
• the role of HRM practices for business strategy in Latin America
• national development and HRM practices
• diverse specific social and cultural contexts.
Written by regional-based academics with intimate knowledge of the
cultural and business landscapes, this is an important reading for students
of human resource management, and business and management

10. New human resource management practices, complementarities and

the impact on innovation performance


In this paper, we take our theoretical point of departure in recent work in

Organisational economics on systems of human resource management
(HRM) practices. We develop the argument that just as
complementarities between new HRM practices influence financial
performance positively, there are theoretical reasons for expecting them
also to influence innovation performance positively. We examine this
overall hypothesis by estimating an empirical model of innovation
performance, using data from a Danish survey of 1,900 business firms.
Using principal component analysis, we identify two HRM systems
which are conducive to innovation. In the first one, seven of our nine
HRM variables matter (almost) equally for the ability to innovate. The
second system is dominated by firm-internal and firm-external training.
Of the total of nine sectors that we consider, we find that the four
manufacturing sectors correlate with the first system. Firms belonging to
wholesale trade and to the ICT intensive service sectors tend to be associated
with the second system.

12. Compensation Policy, Human Resource Management Practices

and Takeovers

Overview: This paper uses a unique Linked Employer-Employee Data

(LEED) set to examine the determinants of mergers and acquisitions and
to study post takeover employment. It is found that firms involved in
takeovers are qualitatively different from non takeover firms and that post
takeover employment probabilities are highly dependent on individual
characteristics and the firms pre-takeover compensation policy. The paper
also discusses the value of (LEED) for such an analysis and draws
conclusions for industrial and labour policy based on combining these
results with results from the literature on displaced workers.


13. Off shoring and the Future of Work

Off shoring, like outsourcing, though already an accepted norm of doing
business, still many business owners shun the idea. There are many
arguments hurled against this business practice. And one of which is
depleting the job opportunities to the citizenship of a country, in this case,
particularly of the United States. Lately, I have even a lengthy discussion
with a CEO of one of my client companies regarding this issue. As much
as I want to post a full treatise on the subject, allow me instead to share
an excellent excerpt below from J. Schramm's Workplace Visions -Off
The topic of off shoring has become a sensitive one. Numerous U.S.
manufacturing jobs were sent overseas to lower wage countries such as
Thailand, Malaysia, and China during the 1980's and 90s. However,
advances in telecommunications and information technology have
resulted in more 'white-collar' jobs being sent overseas as well. It began
with call centers, and quickly evolved into software engineers and other
information technology jobs moving primarily to India (because of high
levels of both technical and English language skills there). With the
economy exhibiting a sluggish rebound in 2004 and more and more firms
sending white-collar work overseas, the issue has become quite political.

14. The Effect of Human Resource Management Practices on MNC

Subsidiary Performance in Russia


This study investigates the relationship between human resource

management (HRM) and the performance of 101 foreign-owned
subsidiaries in Russia. The study's results provide support for the
assertion that investments in HRM practices can substantially help a firm
perform better. Further, different HRM practices for managerial and non-
managerial employees are found to be significantly related with firm
performance. However, only limited support is obtained for the
hypothesized relationship between efforts at aligning HRM practices with
firm strategy and subsidiary performance.,39024759,60133468p,00.htm


15. Gaining Competitive Advantage through HRM Practices


16. Effect of human resource management practices on firm

performance: Empirical evidence from high-tech firms in Taiwan.
This study comprehensively evaluated the links between human resource
management (HRM) practices and firm performance of Taiwan's high-
tech firms. Using data from Hsinchu science-based industrial park, the
study found that HRM practices such as training & development,
teamwork, benefits, human resource planning and performance appraisal
have significant effect on employee productivity. In addition, benefits and
human resource planning are negatively related to employee turnover
This study also shows that competitive strategies, such as cost strategy
and differentiation strategy, have revealed moderating effects on the
relationship between HRM practices and firm performance.


17. The Influence of Culture on Human Resource Management

Processes and Practices

It is clear that organizations are becoming more culturally diverse, and a

better understanding of multi-culturism and its impact on organizations is
needed. This book, with contributions from expert academics, is designed
to motivate both the further development of models concerned with the
influence of cultural diversity on several Human Resource Management
processes and practices and the design and conduct of empirical research
on the same topic. It primarily focuses on processes and practices that
occur at three general phases; the pre-hire phase, the selection phase, and
the post-hire phase. An improved understanding of the roles that culture
plays in such processes and practices should contribute to both the
efficiency and effectiveness of organizations and the performance and
well-being of their members.

This edited book is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students

in industrial and organizational psychology, human resource
management, sociology of work, and cultural diversity within
organizations. It can provide a central resource in classes on
organizational psychology, strategic human resource management, and
global issues in human resource management. Professionals and
practitioners who increasingly interact with organizational issues at the
global level will find this book essential to their work.

18. Institutional and rational Determinants of Organisational
Practices: Human Resource Management in European Firms

This paper tests predictions from institutional and rational perspectives

about the adoption of organizational practices through a comparative
study of human resource management in firms located in six European
countries. Distinguishing between calculative practices -- aimed at
efficient use of human resources, and collaborative practices -- aimed at
promoting the goals of both employees and employer, the paper predicts
differences in adoption across countries. Results show that institutional
determinants, as indicated by the national embeddedness of firms, have a
strong effect on the application of both calculative and collaborative
human resource management practices. Firm size, a rational determinant,
has a considerable impact on calculative practices, whereas the effect of
industrial embeddedness is quite modest for both practices.'

Despite their very different assumptions, both rational and institutional

explanations of organizational structure and management practices
predict similarity among firms that operate in the same industry within
the context of a single country. From a rational perspective, firms pursue
economic advantage through decision making and actions guided by
unambiguous preferences and bounded rationality. Although one may
expect differences between industries, within industries, firms will
implement organizational practices that promote the maximization of
economic goals. Thus, discounting sluggishness in the diffusion of best
practices, it would be reasonable to expect that intraindustry management
systems are to a large degree uniform.

...Through various mechanisms of coercion, normative regulations, and

imitation, organizations sharing the same environment are believed to
become structurally similar as they respond to like pressure; that is, they
will demonstrate isomorphism...

While the rational model assumes that organizational practices are

universal across national borders, institutionalism is sensitive to the
possibility of cross-national institutional differences, which in turn
generate significant crossnational differences in managerial systems...
Rather than assuming that all organizations are alike, or when differences
are found between organizations situated in varying social and cultural
contexts, attempting to understate them or explain them away, current
work is more likely to celebrate diversity and seek to account for the
reasons why different forms arise...

The purpose of this paper is to study the impact of institutional

determinants on firms' use of human resource management practices,
using cross-national analysis. Whereas the broad rational model implies
that there will be no crossnational differences beyond those that are
ascribable to factors such as varying firm size and differing industries, the
institutional model assumes dissimilarities not only in relation to industry
differences but also dissimilarities rooted in the idiosyncratic national
institutional regimes surrounding firms.

Cross-national dissimilarities in institutional structures are likely to create

management practices that vary from country to country, regardless of the
fact that management theories are often rapidly disseminated across
national borders. Particularly in the human resource management field,
the inertia of institutional structures is likely to inhibit the application of
new management prescriptions whenever these are seriously at odds with
existing legal rules and political conditions. This is due to the fact that
human resource management practices are subject to idiosyncratic sets of
national regulations as well as sensitive to the scrutiny of labor unions
whose strength and attitudes toward management vary...

19. Trade Union Influence on Human Resource Management


This paper examines the influence of unions on 37 human resource
management practices, ranging from hiring policies to promotion
practices. The logistic regression results show that unionization is
positively associated with a more formal approach to human resource
management. There is, however, a shift from performance-based payment
systems and performance appraisal (P.A.) functions in unionized settings.
The results also indicate that union firms are more selective of new hires
by adopting a formal probationary period for new employees. Last, the
estimates suggest that the impact of unions on training programs varies
with the nature of the programs.

20. Regulating for best practice in human resource management:
The impact of the good employer obligation


The aim of this thesis is to assess the impact of the 'good employer'
directive (s.56, State Sector Act 1988) on Human Resource Management
(HRM) in the public sector. It is suggested that the aim of the directive
was to compel employers in the public sector to create an outcome of
employee well-being as an objective of the HRM function. This required
the use of an employee-centred model of HRM. As the State in New
Zealand is currently reviewing how it achieves this aim, this is an
opportune time to conduct a review of the directive. This study includes
an empirical examination of the objectives of the HRM function, together
with HRM practice in the four functional areas covered by the directive
(good and safe working conditions, recruitment and selection, training
and development, and equal employment opportunity) and employee
perceptions of well-being. A research framework was developed to
measure the impact of the good employer directive. This identified the
predicted relationships between the directive and HRM outcomes. The
main study was completed using a survey approach. In addition, a
number of smaller analyses using secondary data sources were also
undertaken. Results show the directive impacted on HRM policy
development and the use of employee centred HRM practice in the public
sector. Compared to the private sector, the public sector has higher levels
of policy development in the four areas covered by the directive, and
considerably more employee-centred practices in place. The judiciary
suggested that the directive placed a greater onus of responsibility on
public sector employers to be 'good', and analysis of statistical data show
the outcomes for equal employment opportunity groups specifically
targeted by the directive to be superior in this sector. However, from the
employees' perspective, these positive results do not have a significant
impact. As a consequence, any conclusions that the directive has been
effective in improving the outcomes for employees must be tempered.
The findings of this study contribute to the literature in a variety of
important ways. Some valuable insights have been gained into public
sector HRM and employee views about HRM. It is concluded that, whilst
the directive has impacted on HRM practice, there may be problems with
how the State in New Zealand seeks to define a 'good employer'.
Different functional areas of HRM appear to have a different impact on
employee well-being. Only those areas of HRM considered important to
employees are likely to produce desirable outcomes for employees.
Furthermore, perceptions of employee well-being are related to the
operationalisation of FIRM practice, but not to the numbers of HRM
practices. This provides empirical support for assertions that suggest that
the relationship between levels of HRM practice and employee well-
being is not as strong nor as important as the relationship that exists
between employee perceptions about actual practice and employee well-
being. This has implications for practitioners, suggesting it is the
importance placed on HRM, and the quality of HRM practice, together
that have the greatest potential to contribute to employee wellbeing.
