Firm agreements are thus mainly found to raise wages beyond labour productivity when the rents to be shared between workers and firms are relatively big. Overall, this suggests that firm-level agreements benefit both employers and employees – through higher productivity and wages – without being detrimental to firms’ gross : Andrea Garnero, François Rycx, Isabelle Terraz. wages.1 The basic idea is that workers often compare their wages either in-ternally (i.e., with workers within the same firm) or externally (i.e., with Wage Structure and Firm Productivity in Belgium 1.

Two thirds of these changes in between-firm wage inequality are accounted for by changes in productivity-related premia that firms pay their workers above common market wages. The remaining third can be attributed to changes in workforce composition, including the sorting of high-skilled workers into high-paying firms.   This paper is one of the first to use employer-employee data on wages and labor productivity to measure discrimination against immigrants. We build on an identification strategy proposed by Bartolucci (Ind Labor Relat Rev 67(4)–, ) and address firm fixed effects and endogeneity issues through a diff GMM-IV estimator.

The productivity of a firm is measured by the value-added per employee. We address the potential simultaneity problem between wage dispersion and firm productivity using information from the Belgian income tax system. The objective of this paper is twofold. First, we analyse the structure of wages within and between Belgian firms.

Based on firm-level data for Belgium over the periodwe evaluate the elasticity of labour and average real wage per firm to microeconomic total factor productivity (TFP). On the basis of the methodology developed by Winter-Ebmer and Zweimuller (), we find that within-firm wage dispersion has a positive and significant effect on firm productivity.

This result is robust to controls for individual and firm characteristics as well as to instrumenting the wage inequality variable.

The wage structure reflects wage dispersion among worker in the firm or industry, and determines worker productivity. Furthermore, worker productivity determines industrial competitiveness.

They hypothesize that persistent productivity innovations are an important driver of wage growth at a firm, and test this hypothesis by employing a rich matched employer-employee database that follows firms and workers in the manufacturing sector for.

This paper investigates the effects of the workforce age structure on the productivity of large Belgian firms. More precisely, it examines different scenarios of changes in the proportion of young (16–29 years), middle-aged (30–49 years) and older (more than 49 years) workers and their expected effects on firm productivity.
