For Austria regional differences in organisational characteristics of plants and in the employment-structure have been investigated empirically. It has been shown these enterprises esta.h>lish a pronounced division of labour between regions: While in core regions headoffices and the more qualified working force are very highly represented, in less developed regions and in old industrial areas externally controlled branch plants are very important. Particularly in the less developed regions these plants consist mainly of routine activities with a high share of unskilled workers.
