Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to determine the impact of on-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 on-the-job training and allow you to see how much different level of influence among workers with high/low unobserved abilities.
