Инновации на российских предприятиях: есть ли влияние срочных трудовых договоров?

The level of innovation activity of the Russian enterprises is inferior to the level of innovation activity of enterprises in developed countries. Fixed–term contracts can contribute to innovation, because they enhance the flexibility of labor relations and create savings in the use of workers. However, fixed–term contracts can reduce the likelihood of innovation because they reduce investment in human capital, leading to a reduction in labor productivity. Some of the effects dominate – is the subject of this study. The study was performed on survey data of enterprises in the 2014. For the analysis were used bivariate probit model and probit model with continuous endogenous regressor. The results showed that enterprises, which use term contracts, are often innovative enterprises. However, the increase in the number of employees with fixed–term contracts reduces the likelihood of innovation in enterprises.
