Abstract [en]

This paper explores a closedown from an equity theory perspective. This is done in order to provide further evidence on the Closedown effect, a productivity increase effect that appears during the process of closedown. The assessment is done on subjects’ work performance as a function of the closedown decision. Management provided a socially responsible managerial setting throughout the closedown process, installing a HRM-program that had an initially positive effect on the workers reducing the perception of inequity, whereas its importance was diminishing. Despite the perceptions of inequity, the closedown victims exhibited a greater increase in subsequent performance input than the period prior to the closedown decision. Data drawn from this case study indicates further support to equity theory as a possible explanation to the appearance of the Closedown effect.
