Abstract

The growing projectification trend has brought to the forefront the importance of project-based organizing as a work mode and of project-based organizations as key employers. However, research in certain human resource management (HRM) areas (including voice) has been limited in PBOs, because of the decentralized and changing nature of HRM functions in these types of organizations. In dynamic project organizations, voice is highly important in recruitment, innovation, and improvement; it therefore has to be conceptualized systematically. To this end, we focus on project workers as the key employee group and conceptualize the determining system factors that shape their voice in project-based organizations. The conceptual framework is based on a systematic review of peer-reviewed articles and contributes to employee voice theory as a vehicle for the study of voice in temporary employment relationships.
