A unique employer-employee study: the Linked Personnel Panel (LPP)


"With its unique structure, the LPP offers the possibility to disentangle relations among a broad set of firm specific personnel instruments and their influence on their employees. The LPP not only enables research on causal effects of HR practices due to its panel format but also allows comparison between firm sizes and industries, as it is representative of the German private sector (Kampkötter et al. 2016). Furthermore, the data set can be linked to several other data products of the IAB, such as the administrative data on individual biography data, thus providing even broader access to alternative research fields. So far, three waves of the LPP have been carried out between 2012 and 2017, with a fourth wave planned for 2018/2019. To tackle the challenges of a changing labor market due to digitalization, the new wave will have a stronger emphasis on this subject and its effects on both the employer and the employee."
