Organisatorische Änderungen und betriebliche Beschäftigungs- und Qualifikationseffekte 1999-2001



"This paper deals with the distribution of individual and combined organizational measures in German firms in the period 1999-2001. Based on the data of the IAB establishment panel of 2001, representative findings concerning firms of all industries and establishment sizes are presented. The direct employment and qualification effects of the most important reorganisation measure implemented in the particular company are also analysed. The finding for the employment effects is not clear: there are individual reorganization measures that are more likely to result in a reduction in employment, others are more likely to lead to an increase in employment. The effects differ partly between the old and the new Länder. There are certain combinations of organizational changes for which clear employment effects can be determined. In addition, it became obvious that organizational changes are more likely to tend to result in an increase in the level of qualification within the company units affected by the reorganization measures. This result applies to both western and eastern German firms irrespective of the concrete measure." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
