Abstract

The study analysed the supply of company-financed training in Vienna. It found a robust negative effect of labour turnover and a less robust negative effect of labour market density on company-financed training. A test of hypotheses on the link between company-financed training and company features arrived at a non-linear dependence of the rate of training activities to the age of the company which extended beyond previous findings.
