On June 29th, Haibo Zhou will hold an SBB Research Seminar, titled "Is there a risk of growing fast? The relationship between organic employment growth and firm exit".
The seminar will take place in Snellius 174, at 14:00.
"Growing firms (e.g. high-growth firms) are the drivers of economic dynamics. Much literature is on the separate subjects of firm growth and exit, but the relationship between the two aspects has been overlooked. Using Dutch longitudinal data, we investigate the relationship between organic employment growth and subsequent exit (i.e. firm death). We find that positive employment growth and exit are independent from each other. However, we find a risk of growing fast for firms in certain size and industry groups."
