Abstract

Abstract The central argument developed in this paper is that attempts to introduce a more market-oriented discipline to the structure and management of the workforce in state enterprises can be severely compromised when inadequate attention is given to the institutional setting in which many of the problems addressed by current reform efforts are rooted. The argument is illustrated by references to efforts in Ghana to reduce overall employment in the state enterprise sector and to restructure workforces at the enterprise level.
