Show Summary Details


The study of high-involvement management has been part of the wider human resource management (HRM)-performance research stream. The studies in the stream differ in their foci, measures of practices, and performance measures, as well as in their samples and methods of data collection. The results vary across studies, including across performance measures in the individual studies. This article first introduces the concept of high-involvement management as a form of participation and then the key studies that have directly measured it to show how they have explored it and its links to performance. It then compares the results of these studies with others within the HRM-performance research stream to see if they reveal stronger performance relationships than do these others.
