Constraining Influences on the Decision to Participate in Training: The Importance of the Non-Work Environment
AbstractModels of individual training participation choice typically incorporate economic and psychological variables. This study argues that such models can be improved with the inclusion of work/family factors. Data were collected from a sample of non-management telecommunications employees. Results indicate that, even after controlling for economic and psychological influences, training participation intent is influenced by work/family factors. Further, these factors differentially affect men and women, with women facing greater work/family constraints to training participation than men. Finally, employer support for balancing home and job responsibilities positively influences participation.
