- ZEW/Tinbergen Institute Workshop "Behavioural Personnel Economics"
- Mannheim, ZEW, Germany
- Economists have traditionally focused on wages, pay-for-performance, and other formal, predominantly financial arrangements in explaining workplace performance, job satisfaction, and worker turnover. Inspired by empirical findings, both in economics and other branches of the social sciences, recent studies have started to explore a wider set of motivators in the workplace such as non-financial rewards, self-image, and social relations, and how these affect and are affected by formal workplace arrangements. This workshop aims to bring together economists working on "non-standard" incentives in principal-agent relationships, theoretically as well as empirically, to present and discuss their work in progress.
