Social networks and regional recruitment of foreign labour : firm recruitment methods and spatial sorting in Denmark

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper tests the hypothesis that social networks are crucial for regional recruitment and inflows of foreign labour. Danish municipal data from 1997-2006 reveal spatial sorting since initial shares of employees with a foreign background out of total regional employment predict foreign labour inflow rates to regional employment. Social networks appear crucial for the recruitment and inflows rates to regional employment, suggesting that employee referrals and information about vacancies in local job markets are also important for foreign labour
