The process of how the economic status of immigrants’ changes from the time of their arrival onward, and how they integrate into the labour market can determine what factors lead to improved outcomes. Another area of interest is how the career dynamics of immigrants and natives differ. The purpose of this study is to answer the following questions: (1) how do immigrants sort into different firms as they assimilate and how their networks play a role in this process, and (2) how firm-specific pay policies may affect immigrants and natives differently? While previous Canadian studies that have investigated the economic status of immigrants employ census-type data, this study will use longitudinal matched employer and employee data. This data is particularly useful as the same sample is tracked at different points in time. The study will look at changes in the characteristics of the jobs immigrants sort into as they assimilate. Such characteristics include the ratio of natives to immigrants in the firm and the size of the firm. Schmutte (2015) has shown that individuals whose neighbours are employed at high-paying firms are more likely to move to a firm that is higher-paying. It is of interest to see if this is the case for immigrants. This may distinguish if certain groups of immigrants that live in certain places assimilate faster.

This article takes advantage of new Canadian administrative linked employer-employee data to study the role of employers in explaining changes in inequality along two dimensions. First, we use information about the worker's employer to examine how within-firm and between-firm earning inequality evolved over the past decade. Second, we use firm-level productivity information to shed some light on the evolution of productivity inequality over the last decade. Finally, we interpret these findings in the light of current theories about increasing wage inequality and summarize how these results improve our understanding of the dynamics of productivity dispersion. More precisely, we link the changes in productivity inequality to changes in wage inequality to specifically address the question of how the two are closely connected or not.

Beginning with the work of the economist Joan Robinson in the 1930’s, the word “monopsony" has been used in economics to refer to any market situation in which the buyer of a good possesses market power (i.e. some ability to choose the price at which they buy), regardless of whether or not there is actually only a single such buyer. Although monopsony power may be an important phenomenon in many different contexts, a growing body of research has focused on identifying and quantifying its extent in labor markets. Unfortunately, the existing empirical literature on this topic has thus far not meaningfully addressed one especially significant question, namely: to what extent do firms exploit all of the potential monopsony power available to them in setting the wages of their workers? The goal of our proposed study is to directly explore this question by using the CEEDD to simultaneously estimate both wage markdowns, or reduction of wages below what would be earned in a perfectly competitive market where firms have no wage-setting power, as well as the “full'' markdowns that would be predicted by standard models of an imperfectly competitive labor market, given the labor supply elasticity facing particular firms (a measure of how likely workers are to quit in response to wage cuts). Our hope is that these estimates will allow us to measure not only the average extent to which firms utilize their available wage-setting power, but also to explore heterogeneity in the same and to identify relevant correlates of being a “high-utilization" or “low-utilization" (of monopsony power) firm. We are particularly interested in studying whether firms with governance structures that allow for employee participation, including collective bargaining, are less aggressive monopsonists, as predicted by recent theoretical work on the topic.

Both pollution and climate change are known to negatively impact the health and productivity of workers. Research has primarily focused on how these factors affect outcomes of developing countries and the agricultural sector. Little is known about the impact of air pollution and climate change on manufacturing plants in developed countries. In developed countries such as Canada, the agricultural sector accounts for a small share (6.6 %) of gross domestic product (GDP) relative to that of the manufacturing sector (approximately 11 %). The purpose of this research is to study how the productivity of Canadian manufacturing plants is affected by the interaction of temperature and air pollution. While both temperature and pollution individually affect manufacturing plants’ outcomes, a mix of both could amplify these affects.

We document the importance of secondary markets (i.e., business re-sale) for the growth and establishment of private businesses using administrative matched employer-employee data from Canada. In particular, we quantify the extent of ownership turnover among private firms and identify the characteristics of owners and firms that are most often associated with engaging in such transactions. In addition, by tracking individual firms over time, we document how firm growth responds to the presence of secondary markets and the corresponding impact on industry composition. This project fills a gap in the firm dynamics literature which has so far ignored the role of secondary markets for private businesses.

In this paper, we use linked employer-employe administrative tax data from Canada to estimate the impact of payroll taxes on a variety of firms and workers outcomes. At the firm-level, we use geographic and time variations in tax rates to identify the effect of payroll taxes on wage growth at the worker level. For one province, we exploit a clean overtime change in the payroll tax rate to estimate its impact on the firm's level of employment, average wage and productivity, with difference-in-differences models, taking into account firm-level unobserved heterogeneity. Additionally, taking advantage of the nature of linked data, we estimate wage equations with both fixed worker and firm fixed effects. We find no impact on employment and productivity but significant impacts on wages, implying that payroll taxes are passed almost entirely to workers in the form of lower wages.

This project sets out to investigate the impact of immigrant business ownership and employment on Canada's international trade. We propose to use Canadian Employer-Employee Dynamics database connected with data on imports and exports for the empirical analysis. We propose to quantify the effects of immigrant owned firms and immigrant employees on the extensive and intensive margins of imports and exports for products with different degrees of differentiation. We also plan to extend the analysis to examine whether the contribution of immigrant business ownership to international trade is affected by the cultural/linguistic distance between the country of origin and Canada.

This project will explore the technological frictions that firms face when adjusting their capital and labour. These frictions, known as adjustment costs, limit the ability of firms to optimally set their input allocations. Using an administrative firm level dataset from Statistics Canada, a three-factor structural model is developed to estimate the adjustment costs of buildings, machinery & equipment, and labour. The project highlights the degree to which these adjustment costs differ across inputs and explores interrelations between them. These interrelations are important because they provide an additional channel through which fiscal and monetary policy can affect the factor demand of inputs.

The post-Great Recession (2007-2009) economy has exhibited a slow rate of recovery. This is especially evident when examining unemployment. One suggested underlying cause of this trend is the significant decline in new firms, or new entrants, during 2008-2009. In Canada, while there has been a slow decrease in unemployment, the employment rate has remained steady. Thus, it appears the ability to create jobs has not yet recovered since the Great Recession. This raises the question of what factors determine a firm’s status as a job creator. The firm entry rate in Canada is decreasing, while the job creation rate of firms who do enter the market is 1.5 to 2.5%. This is greater than the aggregate annual job growth in Canada. This trend shows firms that have an established position in the market are not net job creators, and new firms may be job creators.  This study hopes to answer the following questions: (1) what factors affect the initial performance of new firms and (2) what determines the fact that some firms are high growth (job creators), while others rapidly shrink. The study will also focus on how constraints after a financial shock (i.e., the Great Recession) affect the entry decision of new firms.

Recent studies have indicated that the gains to shareholders from mergers and acquisitions (M&As) are a result of layoffs that occur post-merger. After an M&A, the firm undergoes restructuring. In this process, it is likely that some of the workforce at the combined firm may be laid off. While the wealth effects of shareholders are well documented, those of employees are not, especially in the Canadian context. The purpose of this study is to examine the well-being and wealth effect of workers that are employed at merged firms. Specifically, this study hopes to answer the following: (1) what is the effect on the level of employment after an M&A (2) what are the demographics (ex. age, gender, job skill level, family status) of terminated employees and (3) what are the future employment characteristics of such workers (i.e., type, earnings, sector, and location)?

This project investigates to what extent individual learning/experience and employment match quality affect firm creation (new entrepreneurship) and firm survival. Learning and experience is a proxy for the quantity of entrepreneurial human capital, and employment match quality is a proxy for the quality of such human capital. New entrepreneurship as an occupational choice is the outcome of accumulation of the entrepreneurial human capital, meanwhile,  this human capital as an initial condition may also affect the firm exit decision. To this end, we incorporate learning/experience and employment match quality into a dynamic model of occupational choice (i.e., switching between being an employee and being a business owner) using the matched employee-employer data CEEDD. The project also offers insights on the relative importance of financial wealth and entrepreneurial human capital in business formation.

This project examines the role that firms play in the economic assimilation of new immigrants to Canada. Because some firms pay more than others (even after conditioning on a worker's skill), two identical individuals working at different firms may be paid differently. The tendency of new immigrants to be employed at low-paying firms, and their propensity to move out of these firms, has important implications for their long-term economic success. This project analyzes the characteristics of firms who tend to employ immigrants, and most importantly, those that hire immigrants directly from abroad. This project speaks to the policy debate on the degree to which employers should be directly involved in immigrant selection in Canada.

In this project, we will advance the findings of each of these papers by looking in detail at how workers move over their life course, examining in particular how multiple aspects of industrial change impact mobility. The analysis for this proposed research will draw on the Canadian Employer-Employee Dynamics Database (CEEDD), which contains rich data on both individual and firm-level characteristics that may motivate migration for close to two decades.

We aim to understand how providing access to affordable childcare can affect economic productivity. We know from a wide body of academic literature that child-rearing responsibilities impose a severe penalty on the careers of working women, and governments have occasionally attempted to address this by providing public subsidies for universal childcare access. We study one prominent example of such a subsidy program, in which Quebec introduced a generous universal subsidy in 1997 that limited childcare costs to five dollars per day. The specific implementation of the program allows us to compare working mothers with children who are narrowly eligible versus narrowly ineligible for the new program. By comparing otherwise-similar individuals with differing levels of access to childcare, we can estimate how access to childcare affects the future productivity and career trajectories of the individuals affected. We also study whether this subsidy improved the productivity of firms by comparing Quebec to Canadian provinces that did not introduce any new subsidy programs. Our research will provide future policymakers with a better understanding of the costs and benefits of childcare subsidy programs.

While there is a large body of literature studying the impact of minimum wages on employment, there is less research into how minimum wages affect firms. Minimum wages increase the cost of paying workers to firms. This gives firms a strong incentive to look for efficiencies, such as increasing performance standards or asking for greater proficiency in job duties. If workers can accomplish more in the same amount of time, they justify their pay increases; if this happens on large enough scale, the result is higher firm productivity. We will study minimum wage increases in Canada from 2001 to 2015 and explore whether these increases resulted in higher firm productivity.

This project aims at evaluating the efficiency of Canadian energy conservation program also called CIPEC program. CIPEC program is a voluntary program which consist at encouraging firms to manage their energy use more efficiently. Through CIPEC reports, it has been highlighted that many firms have been able to reduce their energy waste through the change of attitude or by upgrading machines that are more energy efficient. CIPEC program offers a setting where members share successful experience between them in order to be more energy efficient. To date, there is no a proper evaluation of this program since its launch in 1975. We aim to fill this gap by investigating the direct and indirect effect of this program on its members.

Starting a business is risky because many businesses fail. Unsuccessful entrepreneurs may lose some of the money they invest, they may lose income by giving up a job in order to start the business, and after their business fails, they may not be able to find as high-paying a job as they had before. How important are these different losses for Canadian entrepreneurs? This project seeks to understand how these different risks discourage people with good ideas from starting businesses. By better understanding these risks, we can create public policy to more effectively encourage people to become entrepreneurs.

Introduction

Depuis 2011, les chercheurs professionnels accèdent aux fonds de microdonnées d’entreprises de Statistique Canada afin de mener des projets de recherche approuvés à son bureau central à Ottawa, par l’entremise du programme du Centre canadien d’élaboration de données et de recherche économique (CDRE).

Dans le cadre de cet appel de propositions, Statistique Canada mène un projet pilote sur l’utilisation de microdonnées d’entreprises à ses centres de données de recherche (CDR) situés dans 23 universités du Canada. Comme pour le CDRE, les chercheurs travailleront directement avec des microdonnées d’entreprises synthétiques avant de soumettre leurs programmes aux employés de Statistique Canada pour qu’ils soient exécutés avec les microdonnées comme telles. Le projet pilote tiendra compte uniquement des propositions de recherche qui utilisent le Programme d’analyse longitudinale de l’emploi T2 (PALE-T2), une base de données présentées au niveau de l’entreprise qui comprend des renseignements clés sur l’entrée et la sortie des entreprises, leurs caractéristiques démographiques, leurs finances et leur performance. Le PALE-T2 est utilisé pour étudier la dynamique de l’emploi et des entreprises, le chiffre d’affaires de l’industrie, la croissance de la productivité, les entreprises à forte croissance, et le financement, la survie et la performance des entreprises.

Les chercheurs sont invités à examiner les documents suivants sur les données PALE-T2 et/ou à communiquer avec le CDRE à statcan.cder-cdre.statcan@canada.ca pour discuter de leurs projets potentiels avant de présenter une demande.

Portée du projet pilote

  • Projets de recherche utilisant uniquement la base de données PALE-T2 décrite dans la documentation PALE-T2;
  • Projets pour lesquels une ébauche d’article de recherche peut être fournie à Statistique Canada d’ici le 31 mars 2019;
  • Projets de recherche menés à l’aide de SAS et/ou de STATA.

Les propositions seront évaluées par deux pairs du milieu universitaire et par Statistique Canada. L’approbation des propositions sera basée sur :

  • le mérite scientifique et la viabilité de la recherche proposée;
  • la pertinence des méthodes à appliquer et des données PALE-T2 devant être analysées;
  • le besoin fondé d’accéder aux microdonnées PALE-T2;
  • l’expertise des chercheurs et leur capacité d’effectuer la recherche.

Les propositions seront acceptées et évaluées en continu jusqu’au 30 avril 2018. On s’attend à ce que le processus d’évaluation prenne quatre semaines. Cette période peut être prolongée pour accepter les reprises de soumission selon les commentaires des examinateurs.

Admissibilité

Le chercheur principal mentionné dans la demande doit être un membre ou étudiant de faculté d’un établissement d’enseignement postsecondaire canadien et être citoyen canadien ou résident permanent du Canada.

Tous les chercheurs du projet de recherche doivent faire l’objet d’un processus d’enquête de sécurité, fournir une lettre de reconnaissance de leur employeur ou établissement scolaire et prêter le Serment de confidentialité et de secret de l’article 6(1) de la Loi sur la statistique pour devenir un employé réputé de Statistique Canada pour la durée du projet.

Coûts

Il n’y a aucun coût pour les demandeurs dont le chercheur principal est affilié à un établissement d’enseignement membre du Réseau canadien des centres de données de recherche. Le coût des propositions provenant d’autres demandeurs sera déterminé projet par projet.

Travailler avec PALE-T2 à partir du CDR

Les chercheurs dont les projets seront approuvés aux fins du projet pilote mèneront leurs recherches sur une version synthétique de PALE-T2 au CDR. Le noyau de cet ensemble de données est la Base de données d’entreprises longitudinales synthétiques canadienne, produite au moyen de simulations générées à partir de modèles statistiques. Toutes les variables PALE sont synthétisées, ou modélisées, d’une manière qui modifie les valeurs observées tout en préservant les relations des covariables sous-jacentes entre les variables.

Lorsque les chercheurs auront terminé leur analyse, ils soumettront les programmes documentés et exempts d’erreurs au CDRE. Un analyste du CDRE exécutera les programmes avec les microdonnées confidentielles et mènera l’examen de confidentialité des résultats afin de garantir que seul le produit non confidentiel est remis au chercheur.

Obligation des chercheurs

En plus de fournir à Statistique Canada une ébauche de l’article de recherche d’ici le 31 mars 2019, on s’attend à ce que les chercheurs remettent leurs commentaires écrits sur la base de données d’entreprises longitudinales synthétiques, PALE-T2, sur la documentation qui leur a été fournie et sur l’environnement de travail.

Using data from the Canadian Employer-Employee Dynamics Database between 2001 and 2015, we examine the impact of firms’ hiring and pay-setting policies on the gender earnings gap in Canada. Consistent with the existing literature and following Card, Cardoso, and Kline (2016), we find that firm-specific premiums explain nearly one quarter of the 26.8% average earnings gap between female and male workers. On average, firms’ hiring practices – due to difference in the relative proportion of women hired at high-wage firms, or sorting – and pay-setting policies – due to differences in pay by gender within similar firms – each explain about one half of this firm effect. The compositional difference between the two channels varies substantially over the life-cycle, by parental and marital status, and across provinces.

     We use longitudinal data from the income tax system to study the impacts of firms’ employment and wage-setting policies on the level and change in immigrant-native wage differences in Canada. We focus on immigrants who arrived in the early 2000s, distinguishing between those with and without a college degree from two broad groups of countries – the U.S., the U.K. and Northern Europe, and the rest of the world. Consistent with a growing literature based on the two-way fixed effects model of Abowd, Kramarz, and Margolis (1999), we find that firm-specific wage premiums explain a significant share of earnings inequality in Canada and contribute to the average earnings gap between immigrants and natives. In the decade after receiving permanent status, earnings of immigrants rise relative to those of natives. Compositional effects due to selective outmigration and changing participation play no role in this gain. About one-sixth is attributable to movements up the job ladder to employers that offer higher pay premiums for all groups, with particularly large gains for immigrants from the “rest of the world” countries.

We examine how immigrant employment enhances trade at the firm level using unique administrative matched employer-employee data from Canada. We augment a standard model of firms’ export market entry and sales decisions with trade costs that depend on destination-specific immigrant employment at the firm level. We estimate simple structural equations derived from the model that relate destination-specific exporting decisions to immigrant employment. We develop a method to deal with the potential endogeneity of immigrant employment that exploits the optimality conditions associated with the firm’s employment decision. We find positive and statistically significant effects of firm level immigrant employment on exporting. These effects vary with product type and immigrant employee characteristics in ways consistent with the idea that immigrant employees alleviate information barriers to trade.

This study investigates whether the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (CUSFTA) reduced resource misallocation in Canada. The implementation of CUSFTA can be viewed as a natural experiment, which makes it an ideal setting for estimating the causal effect of trade policy on the misallocation of resources. I perform this estimation using a dynamic panel data model with data from the Canadian Annual Surveys of Manufactures (ASM) for the period from 1980 to 1996. I use tariff rates from Trefler (2004) and measure resource misallocation using the dispersion in revenue total factor productivity (TFP) within industries. I find that CUSFTA did reduce resource misallocation by approximately four percent and, consequently, increased TFP by around four percent in Canada. This increase in TFP translates into a contribution of 23 percent to the overall TFP growth of Canada's manufacturing sector.

This paper uses mine-level data to study labour productivity in Ontario’s gold mining industry from 1920 to 1970. The ounces of gold produced by a mine worker are nearly identical in 1920 and 1970. Thus, the industry appears to experience no productivity gains over this period. In fact, labour productivity in the intervening years was nearly 30% lower than these values, raising concerns about the ability of the industry to re-main profitable given a fixed price for gold. Using a unique mine-level data-set for over 75 different mines comprising nearly 90% of the industry in Ontario, we perform a firm-level analysis of productivity. This analysis allows us to determine whether workers are in fact becoming less efficient over time, or whether other factors, such as entry and exit into the industry, declining quality of ore bodies, or changes in capital stock, are the primary drivers of this stagnation. We are also able to determine the impact that events such as a sudden 70% rise in the price of gold in 1934, the Second World War, and the subsidization of the industry in the late 1940s had on productivity.

All three global automakers currently manufacturing vehicles in Australia have announced their total shutdown of operations there by 2017. This shutdown has sparked some fears that Canadian auto manu-facturing may follow a similar trajectory. This article reviews the factors contributing to the closures in Australia and considers key structural, economic, and policy differences between the Australian and Canadian cases. The Canadian industry enjoys several structural advantages compared with Australia, chief among them its large and bilateral trade relationship with the United States. These advantages suggest that the Canadian industry has a better prognosis.

Les trois constructeurs mondiaux d’automobiles actuellement pre´sents en Australie ont annonce´ qu’ils mettront fin a` toutes leurs ope´rations dans ce pays en 2017. Ces fermetures annonce´es ont fait naıˆtre la crainte que le secteur de la construction automobile suive la meˆme voie au Canada. Dans cet article, je de´cris les facteurs qui ont amene´ les constructeurs automobiles a` fermer leurs usines en Australie, et j’analyse les diffe´rences importantes, sur le plan structurel, e´conomique et des politiques publiques, qui existent entre ce pays et le Canada. J’explique entre autres que le Canada, par rapport a` l’Australie, profite de nombreux avantages structurels, au premier rang desquels se trouve l’importante relation commerciale bilate´rale que le pays entretient avec les E´ tats-Unis. Ces points forts me permettent d’affirmer que l’industrie automobile canadienne a un meilleur avenir au Canada.

The Canadian automotive industry underwent substantial restructuring between 2005 and 2014. This article draws on establishment-level data to examine these changes as they relate to both automotive assembly and automotive parts manufacturing. It also elucidates the limitations of using official govern-ment statistics to study the automotive industry. In addition to analyzing changes to the structure and composition of the industry, our data demonstrate that the industry employs far more people than are reported in official government statistics. We conclude that improvements to data collection methods are important for policy-makers to develop effective supports for the automotive industry.

L’industrie automobile canadienne a fait l’objet d’une importante restructuration entre 2005 et 2014. Dans cet article, a` partir de donne´es recueillies au niveau des usines, nous examinons ces changements, lie´sa` la fois a` l’assemblage et a` la fabrication des pie`ces. Nous montrons e´galement les limites que pose l’utilisa-tion des statistiques gouvernementales officielles pour e´tudier l’industrie automobile. En plus d’analyser les transformations dans la structure et la composition du secteur, nous de´montrons, a` partir de nos donne´es, que celui-ci emploie beaucoup plus de gens que ne le rapportent les statistiques gouvernementales officielles. Nous en concluons qu’il est important d’ame´liorer les me´thodes de collecte des donne´es pour que les de´cideurs politiques puissent soutenir efficacement l’industrie automobile.

Turnover within an industry creates a turbulent situation for workers, where a firm's shutdown leads to permanent layoffs. Using data drawn from the Longitudinal Worker File, a Canadian firm-worker matched employment database, we investigate the impact of industry shutdown rates on the rate of permanent layoffs and workers' wages. We quantify the effects of permanent layoffs on worker outcomes such as employment status and earnings. These effects vary across industries, firms and workers. Further, selection induces a bias in the effect of shutdown rates on permanent layoffs and wages. After accounting for firm shutdown (selection), we find that an increase in industry shutdown rates generally increases the probability of permanent layoffs and decreases workers' wages.

During the 1980s, Canada’s automotive manufacturing assembly landscape changed when five new manu-facturers from outside of North America made large-scale investments. The industry shifted from one focused on US-owned corporations to one with a much more international orientation. Because of the success Canada enjoyed in attracting foreign automotive investment, one might conclude that those engaged in the process did so with a coherent plan and that the period was marked by one success after another. The reality, however, is that several misses also occurred. Layering archival sources and inter-views with secondary sources, this article contributes to the history of the economic development of Canada’s automotive industry. Through this, important lessons for policy-makers are offered: The process of goal and policy congruence is demonstrated; one sees how dominant personalities can override governance mechanisms, even in large corporations; and one observes the capacity of exogenous factors to affect the best-laid plans.

Au cours des anne´es 1980, le paysage de l’industrie automobile canadienne s’est transforme´, alors que cinq nouveaux manufacturiers venant de l’exte´rieur de l’Ame´rique du Nord ont fait des investissements importants au pays. Le secteur, jusqu’alors domine´ par des inte´reˆts ame´ricains, s’est ainsi beaucoup diver-sifie´ sur le plan de la proprie´te´ des entreprises. Comme le Canada a alors re´ussi a` attirer des investisse-ments e´trangers, on pourrait penser que ceux qui ont participe´ a` ce processus avaient un plan cohe´rent, et que les re´ussites se sont succe´de´ ;lar´ealite´, toutefois, est qu’il y a e´galement eu des lacunes et des e´checs. Graˆce a` des archives et a` des sources secondaires, cet article pre´sente le de´veloppement e´cono-mique de l’industrie automobile canadienne durant cette pe´riode. Les de´cideurs politiques peuvent en tirer d’importantes lec¸ons : il faut s’assurer de bien arrimer les objectifs et les politiques ; des personnes ayant beaucoup de pouvoir peuvent agir sans tenir compte des me´canismes de gouvernance, meˆme dans de grandes entreprises ; et des facteurs exoge`nes peuvent entraver la re´alisation des plans meˆme les mieux conc¸us.

The conditions under which profit sharing affects workplace productivity have never been fully understood. Using panel data, this paper examines whether there is any link between adoption of an employee profit sharing plan and subsequent productivity panels. Overall, we find a significant link between adoption of a profit sharing program and subsequent productivity growth in both panels, but only among establishments that utilize work teams. growth in Canadian establishments, and whether this relationship is affected by various contextual factors, particularly use of work teams. In so doing, we use both three and five-year panels. Overall, we find a significant link between adoption of a profit sharing program and subsequent productivity growth in both panels, but only among establishments that utilize work teams.

The stock of human capital of the firm is an important determinant of its innovation performance. As such, any increase in this stock through firm-sponsored training should have a significant impact on innovation. We test this hypothesis using detailed information on the firms' human capital investments and innovation performance using the Canadian Workplace and Employee Survey 1999-2006. Our results using fixed workplace-effects or allowing for time-varying productivity shocks show that increases in both on-the-job and classroom training lead to more product and process innovation. We then investigate whether innovation can serve as another channel through which training affects productivity.
