This paper examines the relationship between quality employment and firm performance using multiple measures of employment quality. This document finds that greater employment compensation leads to higher profit, labor productivity, and capital productivity. However, providing more direct employment leads to lower profits and productivity, and increases in gender equality negatively affects labor productivity.
