Changements organisationnels, technologiques et recours à la formation dans les entreprises industrielles

Abstract

Numerous papers show that organizational and – in a lesser extent – technical innovation lead to an increase of firms’ demand of qualifications. This paper sheds some complementary empirical light to this question by assessing links between innovation and training. It uses an original set of panel data about training inside firms matched with the « Changements Organisationnels et Informatisation » survey. Results confirm past papers: there is no clear evidence that firms which adopt technological change increase training more than non innovative firms. At the very most, this effect is weak and only at short term. On the other hand, firms which adopt quality norms or delegate more responsibility to lower level staff increase training but this effect is only significant in the long-term. That confirms the idea that organizational change is more skill-biased than technological change. Classification JEL : J24, O30.
