Managerial perceptions of works councilsâ€™ effectiveness in the Netherlands
Although works councils have, by and large, equally extensive legal rights in Germany and the Netherlands, this is the first econometric analysis that investigates the influence of works councils on firm performance for the Netherlands. We use a nation-wide Dutch dataset with information on managementâ€™s perceptions of the works councilâ€™s impact on their firmsâ€™ efficiency and innovation. Following Jirjahn and Smith (2006), we find that managerial perceptions crucially depend on the firmâ€™s human resource management policies and market strategies. Additionally, we argue that managerial perceptions are related to the works councilâ€™s role attitude and managementâ€™s leadership style. For this argument, we find support, too.
