Human resources management and its impact on innovation performance in companies

0
This study is based on the recent literature concerning the management of Human Resources (HR) and, more specifically, how this may influence innovation in a company. We start with the hypothesis that certain management practices in this area (goal recognition and reward for achievement, team work organisation, the creation of a common language and the sharing of experiences amongst R&D workers, inter alia) will have a positive effect on innovation performance in the firm. The influence of industrial sector to which a firm belongs and the combined application of these politics are also considered. These hypotheses are tested with a survey of 670 innovations developed by the Spanish firms.
