Abstract

In this paper, we empirically identify the changes in the skill structure and the evolution of job flows (creations, destructions) associated with the modernization trajectory of firms. Rather than considering organizational and technological changes separately, we provide a measure of modernization of firms which reflects their coordination in a dynamic perspective. This measure allows determining if the renewal dynamic of labor force depends on the stage of diffusion of the new technologies and innovative work organization practices. These tests are conducted on a sample of 2 431 French manufacturing firms questioned in the survey on “Organizational Changes and Computerization”. Classification JEL : L23, M54
