Der unterschiedliche Zugang zur betrieblichen Weiterbildung nach Qualifikation und Berufsstatus : eine Analyse auf der Basis des IAB-Betriebspanels 1997 für West- und Ostdeutschland (The different access to company further training according to qualification level and occupational status : an analysis based on the 1997 IAB establishment panel for western and eastern Germany)
Abstract"On the basis of data from the 'further training' survey focus of the 1997 IAB establishment panel, this report explains that the intensity of company further training indeed varies considerably between the different qualification and status groups. In particular qualified non-manual employees are included in institutionalised training measures more often than skilled manual workers and unskilled or semi-skilled workers. In eastern Germany lower-grade clerical workers have a higher participation rate than skilled workers, whereas in western Germany they have a lower participation rate compared with skilled workers. In the context of econometric analyses the influence of the company qualification structure, the intensity of training in the company and the investment in information and communication technology among other things is examined to find out what effect these factors have on the specific participation in further training of the various employee groups. By means of analysis on the labour demand side it is possible to show that there are companyspecific determinants for the type and extent of company training which are firstly independent of the person and thus also of the qualification level of the person taking part in the further training, but which help to explain the selective participation in company training measures. A segmentation in and through further training is, however, from the point of view of the companies certainly rational as long as the general conditions do not change. This includes a more strongly polyvalent deployment of staff and an arrangement of work that is conducive to training as well as a flexible new coordination of initial vocational training and further training based on it."
