Human Resource Management Technology Diffusion Through Global Supply Chains: Productivity and Workplace Based Health Care
Drusilla K. Brown
We examine the role that buyers play in helping vendors uncover productivity-enhancing labor management innovations. We report on a buyer-directed factory-based program targeting intestinal parasites and anemia in seven Bangalore apparel factories. Raw pre-post productivity comparisons were confounded by factory organizational changes that were implemented in anticipation of the termination of the MFA. Using a DDD estimator, treatment was found to increase individual productivity of anemic workers by 8 percent. The treatment program also reduced the probability that an anemic worker would leave the factory by 38 percent.
