Abstract

As the pace of technological change has quickened and global competition has shortened product life cycles, firms have had to rethink their technology investment strategies and their human resource management practices in order to remain competitive. Although the relationship of technological change and labor market outcomes at the individual-worker level has been well-studied, surprisingly little is known about what happens within the firm . Specifically, there is little empirical research on whether firms' technology choices are consistent with their human resource practices and whether there is a statistical relationship between technology, human resources and performance at the firm level. Firms can structure their HRM practices to develop and retain the necessary skills inhouse or they can structure their HRM practices to attract and recruit workers with the necessary skills on the external market.Conflicts often arise between employers and employees in technology fields after employees have, in their minds, mastered a new ski ll or process. It's clear that job hopping benefits the employee, not the employer. But when the majority of young people are job hopping, and companies are having a hard time attracting young people to work recruiters don't have the luxury of writing people off just because they job hopped. While the job hopping phenomenon continues, some of the reasons for switching jobs have changed. Just a few years ago, employees were encouraged to frequently switch positions by the tight technology labor market, the rapid pace of technological developments and the availability of potentially lucrative stock options at many startups. These days, employees, as well as recent graduates, are looking for stability.
