Bryson, Alex, Dale-Olsen, Harald and Barth, Erling (2009) How does innovation affect worker well-being? NIESR discussion paper, no. 348. The National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR), London, UK.Full text not available from this repository.
We explore the effects of management innovations on worker well-being using private sector linked employer-employee data for Britain. We find management innovations are associated with lower worker well-being and lower job satisfaction, an effect which becomes more pronounced when we account for the endogeneity of innovation. This is the case for three different count measures of innovation – a global measure of innovation and measures for labour innovations and capital innovations. The effects are ameliorated when workers are covered by a collective bargaining agreement.
