The high performance workplace: HR-based management innovations in Canada
What are some of the innovative human-resource based strategies that management is using to meet the challenges of the knowledge-based economy? The paper looks at the uptake of organisational innovations and the "new" HR management in Canada. It examines the links between such innovations and the bottom line in "high performance work systems". Policy issues, the role of government, and research needs are addressed.
