Profit-Sharing and Productivity: Some Further Evidence
New estimates for West Germany indicate overall productivity differentials of 20-30 percent in favor of firms practicing profit sharing. These compare with estimates of 3-8 percent for comparable British firms reported in a recent issue. Like the U.K. results, they reveal important interactions between profit sharing and other firm-specific characteristics, reinforcing the view that profit sharing be regarded as an integral element of overall organizational design. But the fact that in Germany profit sharing is apparently used in a different way than in the United Kingdom by different kinds of firms, suggests that there is no single, uniquely appropriate context and role for profit sharing.
