WP5: Micro-level analysis

In WP5, we measure the effects of globalisation and technology on companies and employees, mapping firms’ reactions to the trends and quantifying how they affect performance, wage inequality and employment.

We also determine how technology and globalisation affect labour market transitions and job quality, identifying gender skill gaps and gender employment outcomes. Tasks include measuring the company-level productivity and profitability effects of managerial and organisational capabilities and innovations. We examine the impact on labour markets of robotisation and globalisation shocks such as outsourcing, reshoring and trade disputes; track how investment in human capital affects wage inequality and employment; and evaluate seven factors of job quality. We will generate a comparative report on job quality in Europe and four research papers, on:

  • firm-level productivity and profitability effects of managerial and organisational capabilities and innovations

  • robot adoption, globalisation and labour market transition

  • gender gaps in skills, tasks and employment outcomes

  • firms’ human capital investment and wage inequality and employment
