The main theoretical and empirical concepts:

1. Human capital of an employee (micro level) and organizations (meso level) contains the components that can be defined as innovative. Some of them bring additional income to the owners and thus their development and use is stimulated by the labor market, but the others are not evaluated and rewarded enough.

2 Stimulation of the labor market innovative component of human capital has the distinction workers, male and female. Studied examples we have shown that women these qualities have on average less and their wages are lower on average, but the presence of such components in the average brings them more additional income than men.
