Occasional Paper Number 14—The Human Factor in Firms' Performance: Management Strategies for Productivity and Competitiveness in the Knowledge-Based Economy, November 1996

Human resource strategies must create the conditions in which continuous learning and innovation can take place. This paper seeks to describe some of the interrelated, overlapping firm-level strategies and practices, to look at evidence of their uptake and performance, and to stimulate discussion about possible roles for governments and about future research needs.
