Which Companies Adopt Sharing Arrangements and Why?

Erik Poutsma and Paul E. M. Ligthart

A chapter in Sharing in the Company, 2017, vol. 17, pp 23-48 from Emerald Publishing Ltd

Abstract: Abstract This chapter analyzes the determinants of adoption of sharing arrangements by companies. Using propositions from agency and strategic human resource management frameworks predicting the adoption of sharing arrangements, we test the relationships with a large international dataset. The study finds that adoption of sharing arrangements is related to human capital investments, individual incentives, involvement practices, and human resource management practices and that adoption is affected by country differences.
