Employee Perceptions of Intended and Unintended Work Experience Outcomes in the On-the-Job Development of Work Expertise
Herling, Richard W.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
This study surveyed the perceived differences in the learning potential of different work experiences, and sought to determine if these differences were reflected primarily in the type of experience, the nature of the experience, or the type of outcome associated with the experience. Research has shown that employees acquire the largest portion of their work knowledge and skills through their work experiences, suggesting that work experiences should be utilized as a primary learning tool.
