AbstractJob, workplace and human resource management (HRM) designs are nowadays at the centre of great attention in economic analysis. New work practices are becoming the cornerstone of an approach to flexibility from within the firm which is credited with a significant contribution to sustainable productivity growth.

Policy implications in term of diffusion of workplaces reengineering and new work practices are also derived.
