|Longitudinal Study:||HILDA||Title:||Work-related Training and the Probability of Transitioning from Non-standard to Permanent Employment||Authors:||Leung, Felix
|Publication Date:||2016||Keywords:||casual employment
|Abstract:||It is widely believed that work-related training increases a worker’s probability of moving up the job-quality ladder. This is usually couched in terms of effects on wages, but it has also been argued that training increases the probability of moving from non-permanent forms of employment to more permanent employment. This hypothesis is tested using nationally representative panel data for Australia, a country where the incidence of non-permanent employment, and especially casual employment, is high by international standards. While a positive association between participation in work-related training and the subsequent probability of moving from either casual or fixed-term contract employment to permanent employment is observed among men, this is shown to be driven not by a causal impact of training on transitions but by differences between those who do and do not receive training; i.e., selection bias.||URL:||http://pure.qub.ac.uk/portal/en/publications/workrelated-training-and-the-probability-of-transitioning-from-nonpermanent-to-permanent-employment%283ed9f6f7-0a68-45b6-8706-5b9ddb01a250%29.html||Keywords:||Employment -- Labour force status and attachment; Education and Training -- Workplace||Research collection:||Journal Articles|
