Yet, the empirical literature on the effect of workplace practices has been slow to shift its focus from manufacturing. Therefore, this study, through its use of a nationally representative sample of all establishments, serves a further useful purpose in helping to extend the empirical job design literature to focus on workplace practices among nonmanufacturing firms, which make up the vast majority of economic activity in Western economies. 39 Effect of Multiskilling LITERATURE REVIEW A number of studies seek to explain the rise of broad job design over recent decades.

Finally, after wages are determined, the owner-manager and the workers make decisions and generate surplus. We assume that the wages are determined by the Shapley value. The Shapley value for worker i is the weighted average of his marginal contribution in all possible subgroups. 9 A non-cooperative game theoretical justification of the Shapley value is provided by Stole and Zwiebel (1996a). In their model, the manager and the workers bargain pairwise sequentially and, in each session, play the alternating-offer bargaining game of Binmore, Rubinstein, and Wolinsky (1986), in which there is an exogenous probability of breakdown.

Failure to control for human capital levels of the workforce could therefore lead to upward bias in estimates of the effect of multiskilling on labor productivity. 38 MARTIN FARNHAM AND EMMA HUTCHINSON A third potential source of bias is the fact that organizations adopting innovative work practices may be engaged in other, unobserved, activities that enhance performance. In this case, one would expect estimates of the effects of multiskilling to be positively biased. Finally, a fourth potential source of bias is error in measures of organizational performance that is correlated with workplace practice.
