This work does, from a qualitative case study approach, descriptive depth and on a sample of 22 companies of Colombia.  The results showed that human management is taking a passive role, in an environment that detracts from the principles of contractual flexibility poses challenges for various stakeholders and contributes to the literature on the relationship between numerical flexibility and human resource management.
