dc.description.abstractWe construct firm-level data set with matched productivity and qualification data by linkingthe Annual Business Inquiry and Employer Skills Survey for England. We first examine theeffect of workplace skills and other characteristics such as part-time status and gender onboth productivity and wages in English firms. We also investigate how productivity-impliedreturns to worker characteristics compare with wage-implied returns, therefore providinginformation on how rents are distributed between employers and employees. We find thatfirms with a higher share of college-educated, full-time and male workers also tend to bemore productive, with considerable variations across sectors. The only robust difference inimplied returns follows from part-timers, who tend to work for firms that pay too low wages forthe observed productivity differences. Second, we study the effect of local skills onproductivity controlling for skills at the firm. We find a positive and robust association, whichis consistent with positive human capital externalities.en_US
