Uses evidence from both quantitative and qualitative research carried out across Europe to show that, while the profile of high and low users of part‐time and short‐term employment is country specific, is concentrated in the service and public sectors and is correlated with growth and unionization, there is a link between these forms of flexibility and a strategic approach to human resources management. Proposes that previous commentators, who have argued that there is no such link, have often used unrealistically restrictive models of strategy formulation and that a more comprehensive view indicates that flexibility is being used strategically.
