Human Resources Management in The Netherlands

when 9 July 2012 - 13 July 2012
duration 1 week
fee EUR 550

The relationship between HRM and firm performance has been a hotly debated topic over the last decade, with the great bulk of the primary scientific research coming from the USA and, to a lesser extent, the UK. Here we start with an overview of this research so as to give a frame of reference to compare the findings from the Netherlands. These findings are interesting because they reflect the so-called Rhineland model of industrial relations, in which legislation, institutions and stakeholders all play an important role in shaping HRM policies and practices. So the proclaimed relationship between corporate strategies, aligned HRM policies and their subsequent effect on performance is, in a Dutch setting, significantly moderated by institutions and stakeholders inside and outside the organization.
