AMESTICA-RIVAS, Luis; MOYA LARA, César; SALAZAR BOTELLO, Mauricio  y  ACUNA HORMAZABAL, Álvaro. Subcontracting in the forestry and timber industry of Chile and the impact of thr sustainable forestry management implemented in the principal company over the organizational climate: A case study. Cienc Trab. [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.55, pp.1-8. ISSN 0718-2449.

The requirements in the forestry industry are focused on reaching productivity standards and a socially responsible performance towards communities, workers and subcontracting companies. Just as in other sectors, an important functional specialization has occurred, and this has forced the big companies to outsource parts of their production chain processes, generating important links with subcontracting companies, which must meet new international standards. That is the reason why the latter must be concerned about generating the suitable conditions for their workers and their productivity, where the implementation of a sustainable forestry management standard could have an impact on the organizational changes in a company. This investigation takes the case of a forestry services subcontracting company that concentrates its operations in the Bio-Bio region in Chile, using an organizational environment evaluation tool through surveys answered by workers that measures the perceptions that individuals have about their working place under the Koys and Decottis (1991) approach, adapted in the investigation made by Chiang et al. (2010). With Cronbach's alpha of 0,80, highlights that the average perception of the survey respondents was good (Agrees) and it is placed at 3,86 points. At the same time, an important number of "I am not sure" answers are shown which opens the debate around the asked factors. Therefore, the organizational environment constitutes one of the dimensions that are affecting the certification processes, specially the impact of the contracting companies on the principal companies.
