Abstract: High-performance work practices are frequently considered to have positive e ects on corporate performance, but what do they do for employees? After showing that organizational innovation is indeed positively associated with rm performance, we investigate whether high-involvement work practices are associ- ated with higher wages, changes in wage inequality and workforce composition, using data from a survey directed at Danish private sector rms matched with linked employer-employee data. We also examine whether the relationship be- tween high-involvement work practices and employee outcomes is a ected by the industrial relations context

Keywords: Workplace practices; wage inequality; workforce composition; hierarchy
