This article investigates work intensification in French manufacturing industry. The first part contains an analysis of the various forms of work intensification and their organizational and technological determinants. The analysis reveals the persistence of Taylorist forms of work intensification, the rise of incident-driven forms of work intensification linked to the development of automation, and the extension of market-driven forms of work intensification linked to the diffusion of just-in-time production. The second part examines the economic factors driving the increase in work intensification. The analysis explores the relationships being established between forms of work intensification and the evolution of labor productivity and economic profitability.
