Career dynamics and span of control

Economics Letters, 2015, vol. 128, issue C, 6-8

Abstract: We offer a model that combines a knowledge based organizational structure with progressive learning of employees’ talent. We show that higher span of control is associated with better selected managers, higher wages, higher probability to be promoted, and higher turn-over in the early career stages. These findings are in line with recent empirical evidence.
