Abstract

Aufbauend auf der These einer zunehmenden Vermarktlichung von Beschaeftigungsverhaeltnissen und des Endes der Organisationsgesellschaft von Davis (2009a, 2009b) untersuchen wir den Wandel der Industrienation Deutschland zur Dienstleistungs- und Wissensgesellschaft und fragen, ob mit diesem Wandel eine Aufloesung des fuer den deutschen Arbeitsmarkt typischen Normalarbeitsverhaeltnisses einhergeht (Dombois, 1999). Dabei werden drei Elemente betrachtet, welche eine Entwicklung hin zu einer marktgesteuerten Beschaeftigungsstrategie beeinflussen koennten: 1) sektorspezifische Praegungen der Beschaeftigungsverhaeltnisse, 2) organisationsstrukturelle Einfluesse und 3) das System der industriellen Beziehungen in Deutschland. Die Ergebnisse unserer Untersuchung verdeutlichen, dass sich Veraenderungen in den Beschaeftigungsverhaeltnissen in Deutschland zeigen, dass diese im Produktionssektor jedoch nicht zu einem allgemeinen Wandel der Beschaeftigungsmuster fuehren, sondern dass in diesem Beschaeftigungssegment vielmehr vom Rand der Beschaeftigung her eine Flexibilisierung der Beschaeftigungsverhaeltnisse erfolgt, die die Beschaeftigungsform der Kernbelegschaften der Betriebe des Produktionssektors bislang nicht veraendert hat. (Based on the work of Davis (2009a, 2009b) we analyze the shift in employment forms in Germany from the traditional German standard employment relationship (“Normalarbeitsverhaeltnis”) to more recent and novel employment forms (Dombois, 1999). In more detail, we analyze (1) whether there are industry-specific patterns, (2) whether structural features of organizations moderate the change, and whether (3) the system of industrial relations in Germany is a stabilizing or destabilizing factor. The major finding of our study is that there has been a change in employment forms in Germany which, however, has not led to a general and overall transformation in the manufacturing sector. In fact, employment forms in the manufacturing sector are characterized by increasing flexibility at the margins of the workforce, while the core of the workforce has not yet been affected.)
