Evidence of wide diffusion of the four types of employment systems is presented for major sectors within different countries, based on secondary data. It shows wide diffusion of both the ‘production’ and the ‘training’ approaches to skill organization, as well as for the ‘task‐oriented’ and ‘function‐oriented’ approaches to performance management, and their effects on wage structures. The countries surveyed included Britain, France, Germany, Japan, and the US.

Keywords: Britain; employment systems; France; Germany; Japan; performance management; skill organization; United States; wage structures
