Workplace Identity as a Mediator in the Relationship between Learning Climate and Job Satisfaction during Apprenticeship: Suggestions for HR Practitioners
Cortini, Michela
Journal of Workplace Learning, v28 n2 p54-65 2016
Purpose: The purpose of this paper was to explore if and to what extent workplace identity can mediate the relationship between learning climate dimensions and job satisfaction in a group of apprentices. Design/methodology/approach: Data were gathered thanks to a non-profit organization devoted to vocational training. Participants (N 87) were apprentices working in different job contexts in central Italy. Findings: Results showed that the relationship between learning climate and job satisfaction was mediated by workplace identity. Originality/value: To the author's knowledge, this is the first attempt to evaluate the effect of learning climate and workplace identity on job satisfaction during apprenticeship.
