The Temporal Effect of Training Utility Perceptions on Adopting a Trained Method: The Role of Perceived Organizational Support
Madera, Juan M.; Steele, Stacey T.; Beier, Margaret
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v22 n1 p69-86 Spr 2011
The current study examined the temporal effect of perceived training utility on adoption of a trained method and how perceived organizational support influences the relationship between perceived training utility perceptions and adoption of a trained method. With the use of a correlational-survey-based design, this longitudinal study required participants to complete questionnaires immediately after training and 6 months posttraining. The results showed that perceived organizational support interacted with the immediate posttraining utility perceptions, such that regardless of whether trainees' initial utility perception was low or high, trainees' perceptions of training utility measured 6 months posttraining were high when there was a high level of organizational support. Training utility perceptions measured 6 months posttraining mediated the relationship between initial utility perceptions and organizational support and training adoption.
