High Performance Work Practices: An Integrative Literature Review, Analysis, And Directions For Future Research
High Performance Work Practices (HPWPs) are designed to enhance employee capabilities, commitment, and productivity (Datta, Guthrie & Wright, 2005). We summarize and analyze the literature on HPWPs. We will delineate an integrative taxonomy that defines 62 categories of HPWPs based on a review of the literature. Using that taxonomy, we will compare and contrast the HPWPs that were studied most frequently in different time periods.Important insights for future research are provided.
