Tax wedge on labour
Primož Dolenc, Milan Vodopivec, 2005, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: When taxes on labor are introduced the tax wedge between labor costs paid by employer (gross wage) and net wage received by employee appears. At a certain level of wage, higher tax wedge on labor increases unemployment and decreases employment, ceteris paribus. The paper tackles with thee main questions: characteristics of tax wedge on labor, unemployment and employment rate in OECD countries in near past, tax wedge on labor policy in EU15 and new EU members and tax system and its effects on unemployment and employment rate in Slovenia. We found that OECD countries can be classified in two groups of countries if tax wedge on labor, unemployment rate and employment rate are taken into consideration. First group is high tax wedge, high unemployment rate and low employment rate group of countries, whereas the other group has alternative characteristics. European member states (old and new) have on average higher tax burden on labor than OECD average, consequentlz suffering from higher unemployment rates. Slovenia has unreasonably high tax wedge on labor; in EU onlz Belgium and Germany have a higher tax burden. According to previous and our empirical findings we suggest that Slovenia could benefit from lowering tax wedge.

Corporate sustainability and economic performance in small and medium sized enterprises
Štefan Bojnec, Blaž Simčič, Nastja Tomšič, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: Various studies have investigated drivers of corporate sustainability, however only a few attempts have been made to link corporate sustainability and economic performance of enterprises by measuring labour productivity in new European Union member states that have transitioned from socialism. This paper analyses the link between corporate sustainability and economic performance, by simultaneously using the following control variables: human capital, the innovation process, leadership, and European Union policy for small and medium sized enterprises. Findings from a sample of 645 Slovenian small and medium sized enterprises reveal that the corporate sustainability and economic performance of enterprises represent complementary performances. Thus, enterprises should constantly balance their economic performance with social responsibility and environmental protection to maintain successful sustainable operations in the highly competitive markets. It was also shown that leadership has a significant positive effect on corporate sustainability. Additionally, leadership should create a favourable and collaborative environment for the innovation process and invest in human capital. Human capital causes innovation, which has a significant positive influence on corporate sustainability, which in turn has an effect on the economic performance of enterprises. Small and medium sized enterprises could improve corporate sustainability also by familiarising themselves with European Union policy support mechanisms that target their growth, development and competitiveness. The findings helped to develop an original structural equation model on simultaneous causalities between corporate sustainability and economic performance with selected control variables.
