Abstract:     
We compare the economic approach to research on personnel and organizational design to approaches from behavioral disciplines. Instead of a survey of the field, our emphasis is on topics which are important in organizational research outside of economics, yet have been little emphasized by economics. We contend that many of these topics hold great promise for insights from the economic approach. In some cases we sketch ways in which economists can approach these topics. We also briefly discuss empirical methods in personnel economics.
