Based on a sample drawn from the population of the 1000 largest Danish companies, the incidence of new work practices is examined. Furthermore, it is examined which companies typically implement the new work practices. It is shown that the main adopters of new work practices are firms in highly competitive, knowledge-intensive industries. The new practices are typically implemented in bundles, suggesting that the new practices are complements. Their incidence is closely correlated with the incidence of performance pay. This may indicate that ”control” and ”commitment” models of HRM are not substitutes, but are rather complementary.
