The Impact of Structured Training on WorkersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Employability and Productivity
The study, which examines the impact of training on the Singapore labour market, focuses on two main hypotheses. First, does structured training actually benefit those who have undergone training? Second, what factors affect workers' participation in structured training programs? The paper also provides policy discussions on the government policies that actively encourage workers to go for training. Finally, the paper discusses some policy implications for the Singapore economy.
