Pre-Training, During-Training and Post-Training Activities as Predictors of Transfer of Training

Training is one of the most frequently used Human Resource Development (HRD) interventions. Positive transfer of training is defined as the degree to which the trainees effectively apply the knowledge, skills and attitudes gained in training for the job. The purpose of this study is to determine whether pre-training, during-training and post-training activities significantly influence transfer of training, and also if the three predictors have a significant relationship with transfer of training. Scales developed by Saks and Belcourt (2006) were used to quantify the three predictors, and the transfer of training scale from Xiao’s (1996) study was also used. 136 respondents’ data from four hospitality firms having national presence were used to test the hypothesis. The results indicate that all the three predictors explain 20.2%, 28% and 18.3% variations respectively, and therefore, significantly influence the transfer of training and also have a positive relationship with transfer of training.
