HRM and Performance

Jaap Paauwe

Oxford University Press

Making use of the ‘inside-out’ and ‘outside-in’ viewpoints enables us to acquire a better understanding of the links between strategy, HRM, and the resulting performance. This chapter draws attention to the context of HRM by further examining HRM itself and whether different HRM models consider the significance of context. Since the field of industrial relations reveals much about HRM, this chapter explores this and utilize institutional theory in order to establish the theoretical base for studying HRM in context. Since institutional theory is often associated with concentrating on stability, determinism, and the conserving nature of institutions, this chapter investigates how institutional theory also accounts for change, the deinstitutionalization processes, and the role of agency.

Keywords:   context, industrial relations, industrial theory, change, role of agency, deinstitutionalization processes
