Integrating Economic and Organization Theory
Edited by Anna Grandori
Chapter 16: The economic organization of employment: systems in human resource management and industrial relations
This chapter examines the economic organization of employment relationships. Topics examined include the concept of employment systems; the foundation of the employment relationship in coordination cost and the division of labor; reasons for internalization versus externalization of employment relationships; alternative organizational configurations of employment systems; and theoretical explanation of the structure and performance of different employment systems. The chapter draws on literatures and explanations spanning the economics–organization interface but with particular reference to the complementary fields of human resource management and industrial relations (hereafter industrial and employment relations).
