Chapter 10: Human resource management perspective on innovation
This chapter analyses innovation from the perspective of human resource management (HRM). Recent debates in innovation and HRM literatures have suggested the need to perform different innovation types and how important HRM practices are to them. Theory discusses the interplay between technological innovation and management innovation, as well as how HRM can be configured for their occurrence. The chapter reports on a survey which collected data pertaining to innovations implemented by 416 Brazilian organizations between 2014 and 2016. Data analysis was performed through structural equation modelling. The results indicate that organizations performing product and process innovations are more likely to have established HRM practices that favour innovation. Results also reveal that innovations in HRM have shown the same level of complexity as other management innovations. Therefore, HRM brings different outcomes to innovation by fostering new or improved product and process, as well as by innovating its own policies and practices.
