- Transfer of Training: A Reorganized Review on Work Environment and Motivation to Transfer
This paper aimed to evaluate learning in three trainings held at a Brazilian federal public organization. It is a longitudinal quasi-experiment with three waves, pre-test before training - T1 , post-test 1 right after the end of the training - T2 and post-test 2 around three months after the training - T3. Learning was assessed with situational tests, so results are based on performance rather than self-assessment.
Factors Affecting Transfer of On-The-Job Training at Workplaces in Pakistan
Research has shown a relatively profound role of the work environment in delineating the construct of transfer. However, some of the most important characteris- tics of the work environment have arguably remained under-researched and are still going empirical testing. So, in earnest, this paper is an attempt to make a holistic review of the literature and methodology by going through sum- mative, formative and meta studies published from — on transfer.
This paper proposes a conceptual framework by recognizing the influential role of two forms of work environments i. Moreover, in the year , Foxon conducted a study and revealed that, among these three inhibiting factors, learner characteristics and training design and delivery category accounts to 22 percent and 35 percent of variance, while organizational climate was the leading influencing factor accounting to almost 42 percent of the variance. However, the present review does not focus on learner characteristics, as observed from the study of Foxon it accounted only to 22 percent of variance.
Similarly, the other influencing construct, i. Notably, in the year , Facteau et al. As second order formative constructs, situational cues possess first order reflective variables such as supervisor support, peer support, equipment availability, opportunity to use learned skills at work, etc. Similarly, as second order formative construct, consequences possess first order reflective variables such as punishment, positive feedback, negative feedback, to name a few.
Although, Blume et al. The majority of studies have, nonetheless, measured work environment constructs by two categories, i. Moreover, a meta-analytic study is not an exploratory analysis which determines the factor structure of a construct and also Blume et al.
On the other hand, Yelon, Sheppard, Sleight, and Ford proposed that among transfer climate dimensions autonomy is more effective than any other variable. They argued that autonomous employees develop their own resources and support and may even perform well without feedback.
Earlier in , Holton b differentiated the motivational construct into motivation to learn and motivation to transfer, where the former is thought to be influ- enced by personality, job attitudes and intervention readiness, and the later by work environment variables.
Therefore, the inclusion of motivation to trans- fer as a mediator between work environment and transfer of training, which is by large neglected by researchers, assumes more relevance in the current scenario. Indeed, it is still unclear whether motivation to transfer influences relationship between work environment and transfer of training.
Therefore, this review taking lead from work environment perspective in general and social support i. Need for the Present Review The recognition of the importance of training has never been greater than it is today. Training programs can play a critical role in ensuring the quality of people through continuous learning efforts.
The training initiatives are expected to improve and sharpen the human skills with an impact on the way of their thinking and doing, thus making the maximum utilization of this valuable resource possible. In India, the importance of training can be seen by the corporate spending amounting to the huge sum of Crore annually, i.
Not only the Central Government but States also contribute in its progress. Since huge financial and human resources are employed for imparting the training programs, therefore, it becomes mandatory to examine the fac- tors particularly in work environment which influence its outcome.
Moreover, as the study on transfer of training in our State is scant, we suppose that certain contributions will be made, which will be of great use for State ad- ministrators as well as for future researchers. Therefore, the present study is undertaken to gain an insight regard- ing the transfer of skills and knowledge at actual workplace by reviewing the major studies of the past decade, by also highlighting the Summative, Formative and Meta studies on transfer of training.
The study makes an attempt to review the literature underlining the impact of work environment factors i. Moreover, this study attempts to update the researchers to employ standard methodological principles and procedures particularly in transfer studies. Review of Transfer of Training In this dynamic era, the fate of a business does not depend on how much credit and debit it creates, but how much commitment, compassion and competence its workforce shows. More importantly, the degree with which individuals effectively apply the skills and knowledge gained from a training program to a job situation, i.
From the last decade, training evaluation in general and transfer of training in particular has been an enduring problem for psychologists, HRD specialists, researchers and practitioners, to name a few. Notably, Baldwin and Ford , while examining transfer of training issues, stated that the transfer process consists of three components: training input factors, training outcomes, and conditions to transfer.
But in , Holton b totally re-conceptualized the transfer model and operational- ized performance outcome, as well as training outcome into two different concepts. Performance outcome measures included motivation to transfer, the design of training and work environment, and training outcome mea- sures were individual learning, individual performance and organizational re- sults. It refers to salient organizational characteristics that are an integral part of the work environment like: positive feedback, negative feedback, autonomy, to name a few.
In a similar vein, re- searchers see for example, Colquitt et al. For that reason, autonomy can be said to be the critical post-training condition, as trainees feel free to outperform newly learned behavior, thereby making it an integral part of learning and training motivation Weisweiler et al. Even, Blume et al. However, from the social network perspective, what is usually taken into consideration is from how many different sources a person receives feedback, because of its impact on transfer.
But it has been found that increasing feedback can even be detrimental for learning see for example, Schimdt, ; Russ-Eft, No doubt, feedback seems to be more helpful in transfer of skills, but due care should be taken for its maintenance when trainees transfer the learned knowledge and skills, as its inappropriateness may turn out to be counterproductive. However, the recognition of source that fosters transfer is more important, as there is a dearth of research on feedback in transfer of training process Van den Bossche et al.
Therefore, the study on said variable assumes more relevance in outlining the source i. Based upon the meta-analytic reviews and previous empirical studies, the authors formulate the following proposition: P1 Transfer climate will be significantly related to transfer of training. Social Support Support provided by the organizational environment has been found to be the main antecedent of transfer of training Holton et al.
Partic- ularly, supervisors support has been recognized as the most influencing but the least examined factor in training transfer processes Blume et al. Among social support a recent study by Blume et al. But recent studies of Van der Klink et al. Supervisors support is equal to parental support, so organiza- tions should adequately guide supervisors through proper channels to take trainees into confidence from pre-, during and postintervention time. McCraine found a positive significant relationship between organi- zational support and training transfer.
However, recently Chiaburu et al. Despite any learning from the training program, an unsupportive climate may block the transfer of new learned behavior back to the job. So, the need to examine ways in which organizations may influence perceptions of organizational support among their employees has more relevance in train- ing transfer processes.
If supervisors support is equal to parental support, the organizational support then can be equaled to societal support. There- fore, it is evident that trainees who perceive support from both distal POS and proximal sources supervisor support will be more motivated to trans- fer , which, in turn, will be depicted by a generalization and maintenance of training knowledge.
Based on the considerable support emanating from the foregoing litera- ture, the authors propose as under: P2 Social support will be significantly related to transfer of training. However, Scaduto et al. Unfortunately, the direct influ- ence of motivation to transfer with transfer outcomes in research has been somewhat limited Seyler et al. Although Colquitt et al. Conceptual Framework The transfer framework is built after studying various formative, summative and meta-studies on transfer of training from In fact, the pro- posed framework delineates the motivation construct in terms of transfer rather than a function of learning plus transfer.
The reason for this pro- posed framework is to gauge the impact of work environment variables on individuals transfer motivation in a post intervention context situation. The proposed framework in Figure 1 is built after considerable evidences, emanating from the empirical surveys asserting the impact of work-related characteristics most on transfer motivation that on learning motivation.
Therefore, the distinction between motivation constructs in terms of learn- ing and transfer is necessitated by the present framework in the post- intervention context and it also supports that, under different considera- tions see for example, sample, design and context , results can be varied.
Proposed Methodological Standards Although there are some empirical research studies capturing the predicted role of social support and transfer climate on transfer of training directly as well as directly, but, it is quite unfortunate that standard methodological principles and procedures have been largely neglected.
For instance, stud- ies on transfer of training has been well documented in the last ten year period but most studies have ignored to determine the statistical power of the study before collecting data, determination of adequate sample size for regression or causal analysis, data collection techniques, i. For a quick glance on those issues, the empirical studies of the last 5 years i.
Motivation to transfer was signifi- cantly related to TOT. Social support was significantly related to TOT. Pham et al. Ismail, Mohamed, Su- Cross Ordinary Supervisor support was not sig- laiman, and Sabhi sectional least nificantly related to Motivation. Although each and every study is a quality in itself on transfer, there exists large discrepancies in most studies.
Moreover, with large number of published meta-analytic studies on transfer, it is easy to determine sample and power. Unfortunately this is rare.
Secondly, the data collection design is also varied in the studies, i. Researchers see for example, Pearl, ; Mulaik, argued that in order to exam- ine causal influences, a temporal precedence condition between exogenous and endogenous should be upheld. In fact, the assessment of variables at different times i. But longitudinal design is mostly not employed. However, each technique has its own advantages as well as limitations. For instance, maximum like- lihood techniques work on large sample sizes, whereas least squares can work on small samples.
Although, there are other things that need to be considered like: the number of parameters to be estimated, the number of observed variables as well as latent variables, but unfortunately this is rare and researchers neglect to report the reason or rationale behind the use of a specific technique.
Lastly, there are mixed results like on some occasions work environment variables and motivation act as a strong an- tecedent, while on other occasions it is not. More- over, research has accentuated the need to include target population as employees rather than students in management research Sears, Therefore, taking these principles and procedures into consideration, the authors put forth the following proposition: P4 The significant relation between endogenous and exogenous variables will be influenced by the research design.
There is an accepted fact that. To be considered as a model, it should fulfill the standard criteria set by Klimoski and Dubin Unfortunately, the majority of research papers actually conceptu- alize the framework and later claim them as a model. Notably the model considers all antecedents, mediation-moderation factors as well as multi-dimensionality of the out- come.
Transfer of training is applying knowledge and skills acquired during training to a targeted job or role. This is a term commonly used within industrial and organizational psychology. For example, after completing a safety course, transfer of training occurs when the employee uses learned safety behaviors in their work environment. Theoretically, transfer of training is a specific application of the theory of transfer of learning that describes the positive, zero, or negative performance outcomes of a training program. Baldwin and Ford  is the most commonly cited model of transfer, which defines the transfer of training as the generalization and maintenance of material learned in training to the work environment. Within this model, the authors conceptualize transfer of training as a three-stage process. Within the current literature, there is a lack of consensus over what factors contribute to the positive transfer of training.

Transfer of Training: A Reorganized Review on Work Environment and Motivation to Transfer
Attempts to grasp the many facets of the transfer of training in a comprehensive theory have been few. Transfer has traditionally been regarded as a training product to be measured at a fixed point of time after the course. Alternatively, Foxon suggests a process approach to transfer.
