DIW Applied Micro Seminar Knowledge Spillover and Individual Careers

Abstract: Through social interaction in the workplace, coworkers are likely to learn from each other (knowledge spillover) and this may extend the returns to firm-provided training from trained workers onto untrained coworkers. Based on German matched-employer employee data covering the universe of employees we investigate whether unskilled workers derive long-term career benefits if they were exposed during their first job to high-quality apprenticeship graduates in the same workplace. After controlling for a large range of confounding factors, we find evidence for positive long-run effects, which hold after leaving the initial firm and conditional on the quality of future peers. Moreover, effects are up to three times larger if the initial occupation has high skill content and task complexity. Overall, analysis suggests that there are positive external effects of apprenticeship training programmes via knowledge spillover onto unskilled coworkers.

    International SOEP User Conference SOEP 2020 - 14th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference
    Inequalities and Their Subjective Perceptions in a Changing World

    The 14th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2020) will be held in Berlin on July 9-10, 2020 at DIW Berlin. The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP (including the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF) and LIS/LWS data) with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with their peers. Researchers of all disciplines (e.g., economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) are invited to submit an abstract.
