Workplace Learning Issues. Symposium 31. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This document contains three papers on workplace learning issues and human resource development. "The Impact of Self-Management on Training Participation" (Jasper B. van Loo, Andries de Guip, Jo G.L. Thijssen) combines HRD and economic theory to in an attempt to explain the relationship between self-management and training participation. An economic model is used to formulate five research hypotheses that are then investigated by using survey data from workers in a large insurance company. "Corporate Training as an Organization Subsystem" (Monica M. Tuttle) compares organization subsystems of finance and corporate training and argues that, with both seeking to optimize different qualities within the larger system, one variable is likely to be suboptimized. The ramifications of this situation, including the issue of increased accountability in measurement as an area for further research, are discussed. "The Relationship between Workplace Training and Organizational Commitment in Australian Organizational Settings: A Preliminary Analysis" (Adela J. McMurray, Rae Dorai) reports on a survey of staff at various levels in the hotel industry, automotive manufacturing, and nonprofit organizations that established a relationship between workplace training and organizational commitment. The implications of this relationship for implementation of Australia's National Training Reform Agenda were discussed. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
