IMPACT OF OUTSOURCING OF HUMAN RESOURCES ON TEAM PERFORMANCE IN A POLISH MINING COMPANY
Motivation: In recent years outsourcing of a variety of different activities has been more commonly observed in the coal mining industry. It is connected with employing workers through external companies. These practices are not necessarily perceived as good ones by employees.
Approach and results: This article aims to present how workers perceive these practices. Therefore, two surveys have been conducted. The first, of outsourcing underground work to third-party vendors, was carried out in a group of randomly chosen underground workers of a mining company (PGG Sp. z o.o.). The other survey, also of outsourcing underground work to third-party vendors, was carried out in a group of workers of a third-party vendor working for PGG Sp. z o.o.
Conclusions: Analysing the results from the surveys allowed for a better understanding of the reasons for the disapproval of outsourcing underground work. This in turn may be used for better human resource management in coal companies including in particular planning an incentive based pay systems
