Produktivitätseffekte betrieblicher Zusatzleistungen



"This paper investigates the productivity effects of five different forms of employee benefits. The data being used is the IAB-Establishment Panel from the year 2000. As a result, the study verifies incentive theories according to which fringe benefits affect a firm's productivity in a positive manner. Analyzing the sum of all fringe benefits, a positive relationship between the existence of employee benefits and firm-level productivity is found. However, this is not the case for each single form of employee benefits. Even though the used methodology of estimation has no impact on the result itself, it becomes apparent that problems of estimation exist, which should be taken into account."
