The Effect of Workplace Education on Earnings, Turnover, and Job Performance
This article examines the impact of a workplace education program at two companies--one in the manufacturing sector and the other in the service sector. The authors examine a broad range of outcome variables, including earnings, turnover, performance awards, job attendance, and subjective performance measures. They estimate a small, positive impact of the program on earnings at the manufacturing company but an insignificant impact at the service company. Trainees were equally likely to exit the company as nontrainees. The authors also find that the training had a positive association with the incidence of job bids, upgrades, performance awards, and job attendance. Copyright 1998 by University of Chicago Press.
