Innovative work practices and sickness absence: what does a nationally representative employee survey tell?

Petri Böckerman (), Edvard Johansson and Antti Kauhanen ()

Industrial and Corporate Change, 2012, vol. 21, issue 3, 587-613

Abstract: This article examines the effect of innovative work practices on the prevalence of sickness absence and accidents at work. We focus on the "bundles" of workplace innovations that consist of self-managed teams, information sharing, employer-provided training, and incentive pay. We use nationally representative individual-level data from the Finnish Quality of Work Life Survey from 2008. The findings point to the conclusion that high-performance workplace system has little impact on the overall health of employees. Copyright 2012 The Author 2011.
