Le partage implicite des profits et ses effets sur la productivité du travail


  • Patrick Artus
  • François Legendre
  • Pierre Morin


The purpose of this paper is to answer the question: is it in the best interest of firms to introduce profit-sharing as an incentive for wage-earners to work harder? A theoretical model is developed, its results are compared with those of an empirical work, using a panel of 700 industrial firms. It seems that profit sharing has a significant but somewhat limited impact on work productivity.
