  3. Personnel Economics

    Personnel Economics

    Edited by Edward P. Lazear, Robert McNabb
    Over the past twenty years or so there has been a marked increase in the study of personnel issues by labour economists. These studies have explored such topics as incentives, compensation methods, human resource strategies and institutional structures, and have provided an insightful empirical literature rich in the creative use of new data. In these two volumes, the editors bring together many of the theoretical papers which were key in establishing personnel economics as a discipline within economics, as well as a selection of empirical studies which have been important in developing an understanding of the economics of human resource issues.

  6. Industrial Relations in China

    Industrial Relations in China

    Bill Taylor, Kai Chang, Qi Li
    This enlightening book provides the first systematic introduction to, and exploration of, the emerging system of industrial relations in China, and draws on the authors’ extensive research and direct involvement in the developments taking place. The authors argue that there are both unifying and fragmenting elements to the ongoing development of industrial relations, but overall it is one in which the state continues to maintain a major, and direct, influence. Divisions between workers and managers may be escalating with increased open conflicts, but this book reveals that the picture is far more complex and contradictory than to assume that the solution is convergence with western style industrial relations systems. They conclude that industrial relations institutions and processes still act within a political context and with the guiding hand of the Chinese Communist party. Learn More

  10. Contingent Employment in Europe and the United States

    Contingent Employment in Europe and the United States

    Edited by Ola Bergström, Donald Storrie
    Contingent Employment in Europe and the United States examines the developments in labour markets in advanced economies in the 21st century, as regards contingent employment. This is defined as employment relationships that can be terminated with minimal costs within a predetermined period of time. This includes fixed-term contracts, temporary agency work and self-employment. Contingent employment has been the subject of much legislative activity in the last decade, at both the national and European level. Temporary agency work, in particular, has recently been extensively deregulated in most European countries and currently we await the fate of a proposed EU directive on agency work. The book is therefore highly topical. Learn More

  15. Global Skill Shortages

    Global Skill Shortages

    Malcolm S. Cohen, Mahmood A. Zaidi
    As the world entered the twenty-first century, global skill shortages in many occupations were evident throughout the world. While these were mitigated by a global recession, there is no generally agreed upon method for measuring these shortages. This book discusses various theories for measurement. Using data collected from 19 developed countries in North and Latin America, Europe, and the Pacific region, the authors explore various aspects of skilled labor shortages, develop a methodology of measuring shortages by occupation, and provide estimates of the likelihood of the occurrence of such shortages. They develop labor market indicators which measure the degree of shortage or surplus in different occupations. Learn More
