Jones Publishes in Industrial Relations

Industrial Relations published a paper written by Robert D. Morris Professor of Economics Derek Jones and Helsinki School of Economics professors Panu Kalmi and Antti Kauhane. Titled ” How Does Employee Involvement Stack Up? The Effects of Human Resource Management Policies on Performance in a Retail Firm,” the article appeared online on Dec. 8 and will appear in print in the publication’s January issue.

The authors explored the impact of innovative human resource management (HRM) practices on performance. They found that when employees have opportunities to participate and receive appropriate information and feedback from their supervisors, productivity is enhanced. Thus, even in settings where employees do simple tasks and are relatively low-skilled, participatory work environments can enhance business performance.
