Manufactures' Assistance in the Provision of Training for Employees of Customer-Firms: Theory and a Case Study.
Tabbush, Victor Clement
The study investigates a phenomenon previously ignored in economic literature: the provision of training by manufacturers to the employees of client-firms. The hypothesis employed to explain this form of investment is that training may raise not only a worker's productivity, but also the value placed on the resources for which the training is developed. The hypothesis is tested by investigating the mechanic-training behavior of manufacturers in the automobile industry. The evidence is largely consistent with the hypothesis. (Author)
