The report provides an overview of the literature on innovative work practices and starts with an inventory of the many practices have been identified as innovative. The analytical part of the paper is based on Eurofound’s own European Company Survey (ECS). The dataset covers 27,160 establishments in 30 countries, probably making it the most extensive dataset ever used for this purpose and the only cross-national attempt. The four performance indicators are used: work climate, the lack of HR problems, labour productivity (compared with competitors) and the economic situation in the establishment.

    Prattiki ta’ HRM u prestazzjoni tal-istabbiliment: analiżi li tuża l-Istħarriġ Ewropew tal-Kumpaniji tal-2009 - Sommarju eżekuttiv

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Kif jista’ l-użu ta’ ċerti prattiki ta’ mmaniġġjar tal-HR jaffettwa l-prestazzjoni ta’ kumpanija? Din il-mistoqsija ferm kumplessa ġiet analizzata minn riċerka preċedenti, iżda minħabba n-nuqqas ta’ dejta numerika suffiċjenti, ir-riżultati mhux dejjem kienu sodisfaċenti. Dan ir-rapport juża dejta mill-Istħarriġ tal-Kumpaniji tal-2009 tal-Eurofound sabiex jistħarreġ ir-relazzjoni bejn ħames prattiki tax-xogħol innovattivi – ħinijiet flessibbli tax-xogħol, inċentivi finanzjarji (għal sehem kbir mill-forza tax-xogħol), taħriġ, timijiet awtonomi u leħen l-impjegati – u erba’ indikaturi tal-prestazzjoni: l-ambjent tax-xogħol, in-nuqqas ta’ problemi ta’ HR, il-produttività tax-xogħol (imqabbla mal-kompetituri) u s-sitwazzjoni ekonomika fl-istabbiliment. Jistgħu jinstabu effetti pożittivi b’saħħithom għal ħafna minn dawn ir-relazzjonijiet, anki jekk xi kultant ikun diffiċli sabiex tiġi stabbilita l-kawżalità.
