Change at Work

Peter Cappelli, Laurie Bassi, Harry Katz, David Knoke, Paul Osterman, and Michael Useem

In this illuminating look at the realities of the American workplace, the contributors explain how the widespread restructuring of American firms--usually resulting in a reduction of the workforce to cut costs--has caused a far-reaching transformation in the relationship between employers and employees. The ensuing new relationships shift many of the risks of business from the firm to the employees and make employees responsible for developing their own skills and careers. In this work, Cappelli and company consider how individuals and employers need to adapt to the new arrangements as well as their implications for important policy issues. A timely look at issues facing all managers and workers, Change at Work is must reading for all interested in corporate organization, employer-employee relations, and the present and future state of the American workplace.
