Abstract

Using British workplace data we examine the relationship between human resource management (HRM) and different forms of employee voice. After controlling for observable establishment characteristics, we find voice and HRM are positively correlated, but this positive association is confined to certain voice regimes. Previous research has found no association between HRM and union voice. However, distinguishing between union-only voice regimes and dual channel (i.e. union and nonunion) voice regimes reveals that union-only regimes have the lowest incidence and intensity of HRM adoption while dual channel regimes have the highest HRM incidence and intensity. The implications of these findings for theory and practice are discussed.
