La production de compétences et les règles salariales : contribution à la compréhension des transformations de la relation d'emploi

Abstract : This article aims at offering a better understanding of the discussion in relation to the individualisation of the employment relationship based on the competency model. Our starting point is the idea that firms use a diversity of procedures to obtain the competencies they need. Based on a survey of five Portuguese banks, this article shows that firms use policies of incitation in order to make workers to mobilise the right competencies : in this respect, earning policies appear to be the mean of resolving problems of coordination. Competency has only a weak impact on fixed wage but plays an important role on other parts of individual earnings like the share of profit. These findings question the employment relationship and its mode of regulation. Actually, the reference to the collective regulation and the problems related to the firm governance highlight the limits of the competency model and of the earnings based on competency.
