Motivation to Train from Workers Perspective : Example of French Companies
AbstractThe success of a training program is largely contingent on the beneficiary's training motivation. With a focus on instrumentality and self-efficacy, we have sought to explain motivation and to measure its consequences on variation of knowledge acquisition and satisfaction with training. An empirical study of 335 workers sheds light on the importance of both age, the role of the hierarchical supervisor and the manner in which training is portrayed. Voluntary participation, expressed by participation in decision making or consideration of requests, plays only a minor role in explaining the success of a program.
