Evaluating the returns to high-quality employees in medium-sized firms

This project will determine whether facilitating access to highly skilled employees for medium-sized enterprises can have a positive impact on firms’ business practices and overall growth trajectory. Specifically, the researchers will use a randomised experiment on Open Capital Advisors’ managerial secondment model to examine the extent to which the introduction of a temporary high-performing employee can affect a firm’s immediate practices and growth as well as whether this affects the firm’s overall human capital investment.
