An Anaylsis of the Theory of Biased Contests in an Organisational Setting

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper uses personnel data gathered from a large financial sector firm to examine the idea of biased contests. The pattern of scores attained by individual workers in performance ratings is used to explain the probability of subsequent promotion within the organisation. Initial empirical evidence is presented, which gives some support for the theory.
