International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v14 n3 p309-327 Oct 2014
The current study focuses on employees' learning intentions, or the willingness to undertake formal work-related learning. This cross-sectional survey study included a sample of 1,243 employees that are nested within 21 organisations. The results of the multilevel analysis show that self-directedness in career processes, time management, employability, organisational support and growth possibilities, prior participation, and initial level of education are significant positive predictors of an employee's learning intentions when overall differences in learning intention between organisations are taken into account.
