Outsourcing, occupational restructuring, and employee well-being: Is there a silver lining?

Petri Böckerman () and Mika Maliranta

No 1271, Discussion Papers from The Research Institute of the Finnish Economy

Abstract: This paper explores the effects of outsourcing on employee well-being through the use of the Finnish linked employer-employee data. The direct negative effect of outsourcing is attributable to greater job destruction and worker outflow. In terms of perceived well-being, the winners in international outsourcing are those who are capable of performing interactive tasks (i.e., managers, professionals and experts), especially when offshoring involves closer connections to other developed countries.
