Temporary agency work and firm performance: A replication study with extensions

Abstract

"The authors analyze the nexus between temporary agency work (TAW) and firm performance. Compared to Hirsch and Mueller (2012, The Productivity Effect of Temporary Agency Work: Evidence from German Panel Data. Economic Journal 122 (562): F216-F235) and Nielen and Schiersch (2014, Temporary Agency Work and Firm Competitiveness: Evidence from German Manufacturing Firms. Industrial Relations 53: 365 - 393), the authors support a concave relationship between the TAW share and productivity, but find a convex relationship between the TAW share and unit labor costs, instead of a u-shape. Moreover, a new finding is that the correlation between the TAW share and profitability is only moderate." (Author's abstract, © De Gruyter) ((en))
