Internal Research Seminar: Employment Contracts and Stress: Experimental Evidence
-

An online internal Research Seminar with Professor Keith Bender & Dr Nicole Andelic

Professor Keith Bender and Dr Nicola Andelic will present their project, Employment Contracts and Stress:  Experimental Evidence.

A growing literature has found a link between performance-related pay (PRP) and poor health, but the causal direction of the relationship is not known. To address this gap, the current paper utilises a crossover experimental design to randomly allocate subjects into a work task paid either by performance or a fixed payment. Stress is measured through self-reporting and salivary cortisol. The study finds that PRP subjects had significantly higher self-rated stress than those receiving fixed pay, ceteris paribus. Furthermore, the increase observed in cortisol levels was significantly higher for PRP than for fixed pay subjects even after controlling for covariates.
