Abstract
Post-industrial economy is shaped by both digitalization, i.e. network-based co-ordination of relations, advanced development of service industry, increase in the number of open innovations, and by deep changes in the role of human and knowledge. The development of Information society can provide competitive advantages for a country in the world economy, as cyberspace enhances intellectual and emotional human resources, broadens cognitive, creative and communication skills, thus allowing boosting the human capital. Our paper is dedicated to studying the factors of education, work experience and personal features (psychometric factors) with respect to their effect on wages and overall identification of employee groups. In this, we employ labor market statistics (both traditional one and collected from online sources with a dedicated software system) and psychological diagnostics methods, which we modified according to our tasks. In our current work, two groups of employees were identified based on the above factors and enhanced Mincer model's quantitative evaluations: freelancers and full-time employees. We particularly consider the effects of education level and type (including open education), work experience, residence location, and personal features on wages in the Siberian Federal Okrug.
