This paper is based on an annual survey of manufacturing firms, surveyed by the Ifo Institute. 75% of the firms interviewed are exporters and are particularly exposed to global competition. This paper analyses the question whether product or process innovations are more important for employment growth. The results show that product and process innovations have heterogeneous impacts on employment growth. Process innovations increase employment growth of exporters and reduce employment growth of non-exporters. Product innovations have the opposite effect.
