La presente etude se penche sur les caracteristiques des petites et moyennes entreprises qui proposent de la formation a leur personnel. Elle est fondee sur des donnees tirees d'une enquete recente de Statistique Canada qui permet d'analyser les decisions prises par les entreprises en matiere de formation a la lumiere de leurs nombreuses autres activites et strategies. L'etude degage des preuves convaincantes a l'appui de l'hypothese voulant que le developpement du capital humain, facilite par la formation, soit complementaire a l'innovation et a l'evolution technologique. En outre, la frequence de la formation se trouve en correlation etroite avec l'importance accordee par l'entreprise a la recherche-developpement, avec l'utilisation de nouvelles technologies et avec de nombreuses autres strategies reliees a l'innovation. La formation occupe aussi une place importante lorsque l'entreprise met l'accent sur la qualite et sur une strategie integrale en matiere de ressources humaines. Les resultats font ressortir la complementarite inherente de la technologie et de la politique de main-d'oeuvre.
