摘要:In this paper, we propose that a mobile labor market can impose pressure on firm managers and discipline them by pushing firms to compete for talent. Using the state-level staggered changes of noncompete agreement enforceability as the variation in labor market mobility, we find that restricting labor market mobility leads to less efficient executive compensation schemes and investment decisions. We apply the textual analysis approach to capture managers’ attention to employees and find that higher labor market mobility makes managers care more about employees. We also find that employee turnover causes institutional investors to sell firms’ stocks, supporting that labor market mobility imposes pressure on firm managers. Further evidence shows a positive link between labor market mobility and firm value. Heterogeneity tests show that the impact of labor market mobility is more prevalent in firms relying more on skilled employees and firms facing fiercer product market competition. The above evidence suggests that labor market mobility can serve as an external governance mechanism.
