Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that influence electronics technicians to participate in work-related training and to explain the relationships among those factors. Based on Steers and Rhodes' Employees Attendance Process Model, the subjects' willingness to participate in work-related training was regarded as an indicator of actual participation. The factor of willingness to participate was, in turn, predicted by four factors: job satisfaction, values and internal expectations, external expectations, and personal characteristics. To predict subjects' training participation, this model also suggested another path from personal characteristics through attendance ability toward the actual training participation. A causal model was presented to indicate these relationships. Questionnaires were mailed to 130 randomly selected' electronics technicians in the State of Oregon during March 1988. Forty-seven electronics technicians responded. Multiple regression and partial correlation were employed to verify the proposed causal model. Factor analysis was employed to extricate the possible factors which existed within external expectations and values and internal expectations. It was concluded that electronics technicians' work-related training participation was influenced by their willingness and ability to participate. Their willingness to participate in workrelated training was determined by their job satisfaction and external expectations. Reducing restrictions on participation, providing flexible time to attend, and paying for training costs were effective ways of increasing their ability to attend, and, encouraging them to participate in work-related training.
