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.

The article analyses the determinants of job mobility of young workers on the Russian labor market as well as the impact of high level of job mobility on future wages. The analysis is based on the data of the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS) for 2000–2010. The results show that mobility decreases as the person ages; more educated young workers change their jobs more often than less educated ones. The estimations also show that 1 or 2 moves during 4 years (compared to zero moves) positively affect future wages, whereas 3 moves during 4 years do not have significant impact on it.

The paper is devoted to analyses of top-managers’ internal and external succession in the Russian Federation. The original data on top-managers’ mobility during 1999–2007 is used. A share of internal appointments’ decreases from 61% (1999) to 37% (2007). The likelihood that an executive from inside the firm is appointed top-manager is higher for industrial firms, for technical directors and for women. Financial and insurance companies and banks prefer to hire outsiders for top-managers’ position. HR director also has a higher probability of external promotion.

The paper analyzes the possible existence of competition between the young and older workers in Russia. Jobs held by the two groups as well as their educational characteristics signifi cantly different, indicating a low level of competition between them. The lack of the effect of the one of the groups’ employment on the employment and unemployment of the other group on the basis of regional data for the period 2002–2013 years, as econometric models show, confi rms the young and the older workers are not competitors on labor market.

The paper attempts to quantify the effect of employment discrimination on the basis of disability status in Russia. We use data from the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey – Higher School of Economics (RLMS – HSE) for 2005. Parametric and nonparametric methods of decomposition are used to solve a problem of non-comparability of the disabled with the able-bodied and control for unobserved differences in productivity. Our fi ndings show that nonparametric methods are more applicable to disability discrimination studies due to “lack of common support” problem. The evidence suggests that individuals with poor health face substantial discrimination on the basis of disability status in Russia. The discrimination explains up to 25 percent points of the total gap in employment probabilities. This effect should be interpreted as an upper bound of the discrimination after control for differences in observed and unobserved productivity characteristics. The effect may still include the impact of cash and non-cash disability benefi ts, self-selection into disability, environmental barriers, and wage discrimination.

For decades economic literature considered intellect to be the main determinant of individual results in the labor market. While there has been signifi cant research on the traditional human capital as the main determinant of labour market results, there is huge heterogeneity across individual wages on the labour market which remains unexplained. Noncognitive characteristics represent a relatively stable way of thinking, feeling and behaving in certain situations, which appears to provide an explanation for these diff erences. This is the first study dedicated to the link between noncognitive skills and economic outcomes conducted on extensive Russian data. Using RLMS – HSE data 2016–2017, returns to the Big Five taxonomy of personality traits are estimated with an extended Mincer-type model. The results are in line with previous research on the topic and indicate the existence of a strong link between noncognitive skills, employment and wages for all socio-demographic and professional groups. However, there is considerable heterogeneity in the economic returns across these groups. Also, the measured eff ect of personality traits is comparable to the eff ect from the traditional human capital components.

The purpose of this paper to determine what impact of the job training on employee wages. The information base is RLMS HSE (2004-2011). The empirical methodology involves estimation using quantile regression and the method of double difference-in-differences. These results confirm the potential benefits of the job training and allow you to see how much different level of influence among workers with high/low unobserved abilities.

The paper examines evaluation of active market policy using the example of labor market policy. Impact evaluation, the central part of policy evaluation, is focused on cause-and-effect relations between realization of active programs and achieved results. Impact evaluation is done at individual level and provides concrete quantitative estimations of program effect for its target audience and other population groups. The institutional framework necessary for implementation of policy evaluation includes demand for evaluation results from authority and availability of empirical data. A survey among state employees was conducted in order to analyze demand factors and reveal institutional restraints on evaluation of active market policy. The results of the survey show that demand for evaluation is restricted by lack of well-developed methodological approaches, absence of micro data and unclear goals of government programs.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union there was a signifi cant increase of the foreign-born population in Russia. This group includes persons who live in Russia, but were born outside of Russia, i.e. in the Post-Soviet republics. The aim of this study is to consider the position of such foreign-born on the Russian labor market, reveal the difference in social demographic characteristics, conditions of employment, and characteristics of workplaces between the foreign-born and natives using The Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey – Higher School of Economics (RLMS – HSE) in 2009–2012. The results of this research show that the foreign-born from the former republics of the Soviet Union as a group are younger and include more males than the native population. They are more married couples but fewer families with children. They contain fewer persons with higher education, but more persons with completed high school and professional education than among the natives.  Conditions of employment and characteristics of workplaces of such foreign-born persons differ from the ones of the natives. The foreign-born from the former republics of the Soviet Union tend to be employed in small business and not in large-scale businesses or in the budget sector of the economy. In private sector the foreign born are presented of lack legal employment, their tenure is shorter and they tend to have a higher monthly working hours than natives. The analysis of professional and sectoral segregation also shows that segregation of work places between foreign-born and natives area consequence of differences in sectoral distribution, but not in professional distribution. By the way, sectoral and professional differences of workplaces between the foreign-born and natives have been diminishing over time. JEL Classification: F22, J15, J21, J24, J61

The paper is devoted to analyze the relation between psychological elements of human capital and economic behavior. The data used in this paper were collected for the first time in Russia within the mass sociological interrogation and psychological testing simultaneously spent (about 600 people). This allowed us to test at the micro-level if there are the interrelation between psychological components of the person and his behavior in economic sphere. On the basis of the big number of psychological variables eight integrated factors, characterizing expressiveness of different psychological components of the human capital have been constructed. At individual level significant interrelations of these factors with the major demographic, social and economic indexes, such, as a sex, age, formation, religiousness, a labor experience, the birthplace, smoking, the use of alcohol, a sport training, a self-estimation of the social status and a family financial position have been found out. Econometric estimations has shown that some psychological variables (reliability of memory and mistrust to a society, personal adaptable potential and situational uneasiness) have the contribution to incomes comparable with such of the education.

Russian labour market uses price adjustment (wage flexibility) to shocks rather than quantitative one (employment). One of the main mechanisms of wage flexibility in Russian economy is a high share of the non-base (variable) wage component that makes it easier for enterprises to respond to shocks. Using data of survey of Russian enterprises from main sectors of the Russian economy for 2009-2017, the determinants of variability in the enterprises’ behavior of the non-base wage component usage a were evaluated. The obtained results show that a higher proportion of the non-base wage component demonstrates enterprises in a good financial position, with large investments, higher wages and a large number of employees.

The paper is devoted to the role of specific human capital in Russian economy. Using data from the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey we analyze job tenure in Russia in 1990s and 2000s, estimate the return to specific human capital and labor mobility in terms of wage growth. Our findings show that patterns of growing magnitude of labor mobility are even more actual nowadays compared to transitional 1990s. It provides evidences of extremely low value of specific human capital which is accumulated during the long-term employment relationships with the same employer. Moreover, we have found that Russian workers have paid some “penalty” for specifity of their human capital. Current decline of demand on specific human capital can be explained as a result of economy globalization, Russia’s integration into the world economy processes and changes in business structure of modern firm and enterprises.
