Abstract: The aim of this paper is to test three theories for why firms introduce job rotation schemes: employee learning, employer learning, and employee motivation. The earlier literature has made use of either information about establishment characteristics or data coming from personnel records of a single firm. In order to improve upon this, we make use of a unique data set constructed by merging information from a fairly detailed survey directed at Danish private sector firms with a linked employer-employee panel data. This allows us to include firm and workforce characteristics as well as firms HRM practices as explanatory variables, and hence to carry out a more comprehensive analysis.
