Anna Bykova presented the results of a collaboration with researchers at the IDLab Peter Parshakov and Dennis Coates on the influence of the wage structure in teams on individual player results using the example of the Major League Soccer. Despite the fact that the study was conducted on data from the sports industry, the hypotheses that were tested are of a general managerial nature - the work showed that if the team has a high salary concentration, in other words, a smaller percentage of employees receive a large part of the total salary, then individual labor productivity the employee is reduced, primarily due to the presence of comparative motivation and a decrease in cooperation between players.Peter Parshakov presented the results of a work written jointly with Dennis Coates, Sofia Paklina and Alexei Chadov.

The authors concluded that in countries with more popular games, unemployment is higher, however, this effect is different for countries with different income levels.Ivan Avramenko, associate professor of the Department of Foreign Languages, presented the interim results of a joint study with the department’s and IDLab members Petr Parshakov and Yulia Naydenova, as well as Pavel Kolobov, student of the master programe in Finance.
