    HRM-praksis og virksomheders resultater: en analyse på grundlag af den europæiske virksomhedsundersøgelse 2009 - Resumé

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Hvorledes kan anvendelse af visse HRM-praksisser påvirke en virksomheds resultater? Dette meget komplekse spørgsmål er blevet analyseret i tidligere forskning, men da der ikke har foreligget tilstrækkeligt talmateriale, har resultaterne ikke altid været tilfredsstillende. I denne rapport anvendes data fra Eurofounds virksomhedsundersøgelse fra 2009 til at undersøge sammenhængene mellem fem innovative arbejdspraksisser – fleksible arbejdstider, økonomiske incitamenter (for en stor andel af arbejdstagerne), uddannelse, arbejde i selvstændige teams og medarbejderindflydelse – og følgende fire resultatindikatorer: arbejdsklima, fravær af personaleproblemer, arbejdsproduktivitet (sammenlignet med konkurrenter) og virksomhedens økonomiske situation. Der er fundet kraftige positive virkninger for flere af disse praksisser, selv om det undertiden er vanskeligt at påvise en årsagssammenhæng.
