Comparative Workplace Employment Relations : An Analysis of Practice in Britain and France (Hardcover)
about this item
This comprehensive study provides a perceptive portrait of workplace employment relations in Britain and France using comparable data from two large-scale surveys: the British Workplace Employment Relations Survey (WERS) and the French Enquête Relations Professionnelles et Négociations d’Entreprise (REPONSE). These extensive linked employer-employee surveys provide nationally-representative data on private sector employment relations in all but the smallest workplaces, and offer a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the features of workplace employment relations under two very different employment regimes.Comparative Workplace Employment Relations presents new insights from this unique analysis to inform our general understanding of models of employment relations and labour markets. An insightful read for all academics and students of employment, the findings also have implications for practitioners and policy-makers keen to identify and promote “best practice”.
