L’entreprise : espace de valorisations entre trois marchés

In mainstream economics, markets' prices are supposed to summarize all the information about demand preferences, supply quality, and the future of the state of affairs. Hence markets are efficient valorisation processes of goods: prices provide agents with the best information to coordinate each others in markets. Despite this theoretical efficiency, markets' prices are rather considered by enterprises as an economic constraint from which they want to be independent. Enterprises are valorisation processes "against" markets dynamics. The capacity to settle the value of goods, people (in the external and internal labour market) and enterprises themselves (in the financial market) is a crucial power (Eymard-Duvernay, 2010). The purpose of this paper is to empirically characterize the ways enterprises give value to their products, their manpower and themselves. The study is based on data collected in the French survey REPONSE (Relations professionnelles et négociations d'entreprises, 2004/2005) where 2 930 employers were asked about their commercial strategy, their HR policies, and their major shareholders. A multiple correspondence analysis and a hierarchical clustering method have been used to construct a typology of five enterprise patterns. Then, the study presents evidence on the relationships between the five patterns and social indicators. It's the capacity to cooperate and the capacity to learn which are at stake.
