Arbeitskräftefluktuation im Verarbeitenden Gewerbe: In exportierenden Betrieben ist die Beschäftigung stabiler



"Germany is one of the largest trading nations in the world. For the German economy international trade and in particular the export of products offer numerous opportunities. Some fear, however, that the international activities of firms are associated with higher risks to employment stability. Against this background, we study labour turnover in manufacturing, a sector which is characterised by a high export share in Germany. About one in three establishments in the manufacturing sector generates part of its turnover abroad. These establishments employ almost three quarters of the workforce in the sector. The fluctuation rate of the workforce in exporting establishments is lower and employment more stable than in establishments producing only for the domestic market. This finding is particularly pronounced in large exporting establishments." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
