The Relationship between Employer Endorsement of Continuing Education and Training and Work and Study Performance: A Hong Kong Case Study
Hung, Humphry; Wong, Yiu Hing
International Journal of Training and Development, v11 n4 p295-313 Dec 2007
Based on psychological contract theory and expectancy disconfirmation theory, we posit that if employers support their staff by endorsing their continuing education and training, these employees will in turn be more satisfied and will perform better not only in their studies but also in their jobs. We also propose that such an endorsement will have a positive disconfirmation effect on employees' job satisfaction and performance when their perceived organizational support is relatively low. Using 434 part-time postgraduate students in Hong Kong, China, as our survey sample, we found support for our propositions.
