Details This study highlighted the institutional aspects of the task approach and quantitatively showed the mechanisms of tasks, skills, and wage determination through the operations of the internal labor market. As a skill measure, intellectual skills to deal with changes and problems in the workplace were employed. Using an original survey from Japan, it was found that the internal labor market-oriented skill formation system affects task allocation. The most important finding was that task polarization occurs through the skill-formation system as a subsystem of internal labor market. This result suggests the possibility of controlling task distribution through internal labor market design.
