Transferability of Skills and Education and Thai Academics' Organisational Commitment
Rungruang, Parisa; Donohue, Ross
Asia Pacific Journal of Education, v27 n2 p171-187 Jul 2007
Few studies have examined the links between perceived transferability of education or perceived transferability of skills and organisational commitment. This paper reports on a study examining the relationships between transferability of education and transferability of skills, and the three components of organisational commitment (affective, continuance, and normative commitment) with a sample comprising 517 Thai academics. Hierarchical regression analyses (controlling for gender, education, academic rank, and organisational tenure) indicated that transferability of skills was positively related to both affective and normative commitment, while transferability of education was negatively related to continuance commitment. The implications in terms of career management and human resource development are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
