The CCP Sickness Absence Project:
CCP is engaged in a large cross-organizational sickness absence study involving Velux A/S, Chr. Hansen, ISS, Novozymes, Hospitalsenheden Vest, Rigspolitiet, and Herning and Holstebro municipalities. The research project intends to shed light on public and private sector differences in sickness absence, map out the relationship between employee and organizational characteristics and sickness absence, and to determine the underlying structures of sickness absence across various employee subgroups such as production workers, office personnel, and managers.
Managers and Performance Management Systems
Many firms struggle with their performance management systems. In CCP we study performance management systems in detail to advance our knowledge about such systems. In the research project “Managers and Performance Management Systems” we study the role that managers play in these systems. The project intends to shed light on how managers rate their subordinates - if there are systematic differences in the way managers rate their subordinates, and if such differences influence the employees’ career development. The project is based on data from a CCP member company and is conducted in collaboration with professors from Yale School of Management (USA) and McGill University (Canada).
