Publisher's Summary

There’s a reason companies like Google and Facebook offer their employees so many perks, according to new research: firms that treat workers better are more innovative.

In a recent working paper, currently under review by the Journal of Corporate Finance, researchers from Monash University and LaTrobe University in Australia compared a common measure of worker treatment to patent data, and found that companies with higher worker treatment scores produced more patents, and more highly cited patents. Not only that, firms with better worker treatment scores produced more relevant patents, ones that were more closely aligned with the firm’s existing expertise.
