Are firms with financial participation of employees better off in a crisis?

Abstract

"In 2008/09 many countries all over the world were hit by a deep recession. At the beginning of the economic and financial crises a discussion about the practicability of financial participation of employees as an instrument to overcome the crises was initiated in Germany. Especially liquidity and productivity arguments were mentioned. This paper explores empirically whether firms having financial participation schemes of employees were better off during this turbulent time period. We focus on the function of financial participation schemes to stabilize employment and to avoid human capital losses, which is quite important in economic downturns. Our empirical analysis is based on the IAB-Establishment Panel Survey, which consists of almost 16,000 interviews every year. Our findings reveal that profit sharing and employee share ownership schemes are not outstanding crisis instruments." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
