Workplace innovation in the Netherlands: chapter 8
de Korte, E.
Houtman, I.L.D. (editor)
Social innovation of work and employment is a prerequisite to achieve the EU2020 objectives of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. It covers labor market innovation on societal level and workplace innovation on organizational level. This chapter focuses on the latter. Workplace innovations are social both in their ends (quality of working life, well-being and development of talents together with organizational performance) and in their means (employee participation and empowerment). Complementary to technological innovations they regard innovations in social aspects of organizations such as work organization, HRM and work relations. A specific variety of workplace innovation is the New Ways of Working (NWW) which focuses in particular on working unrestrained by geographic, time and organizational boundaries.
