  • Psychological needs, engagement, and work intentions: A Bayesian
           Multi-Measurement Mediation Approach and implications for HRD
    • Authors: Brad Shuck et al
      Abstract: European Journal of Training and Development, Volume 39, Issue 1, January 2015. Purpose The purpose of this study was to empirically examine the utility of self-determination theory within the engagement– performance linkage. Design/methodology/approach Bayesian multi-measurement mediation modeling was used to estimate the relation between self-determination theory, engagement, and a proxy measure of performance (e.g., work intentions) (N = 1,586). To best capture the phenomenon of engagement, two measures of engagement (i.e., the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale-9 [UWES-9] and the Job Engagement Scale [JES]) and one measure of harmonious and obsessive passion (HOPS) were utilized. The HOPS was split into separate scales (harmonious passion and obsessive passion). Self-determination theory was operationalized through the Basic Psychological Needs at Work Scale (BPNS). Performance was operationalized through a latent proxy of work intentions. Findings Results demonstrated that the association between self-determination theory and engagement were positive. Indirect effects between self-determination theory and work intentions were significant for only two of the four measures of engagement (i.e., the UWES and Harmonious Passion). Hypotheses were partially supported. Practical implications Self-determination theory operated as an appropriate framework for capturing the underlying psychological structures of engagement for each of the four measures. In some cases, engagement did not mediate the relation between self-determination theory and performance as expected, highlighting the contextual nature of engagement in both application and measurement. Originality/value This is one of the first studies to explicitly link a broad, well-established psychological theory to engagement. This connection allows researchers to explain the latent processes of engagement that underpin the observed relationships of engagement in practice. Moreover, this is one of only a handful of studies that has used a multi-measurement approach in exploring the engagement – performance linkage and one of the only studies to employ Bayesian methodology.

  • Attitudes towards participation in business development programmes: An
           ethnic comparison in Sweden
    • Authors: Saeid Abbasian et al
      Abstract: European Journal of Training and Development, Volume 39, Issue 1, January 2015. Purpose The aim of the study is to investigate whether there are any differences between the attitudes towards participation in development programmes of entrepreneurs who are immigrants and those who are native-born. Design/methodology/approach Several statistical methods, including a binary logistic regression model, were used to analyse a unique, firm-level dataset collected by the Swedish Small Business Forum in October and November 2012. The dataset was based on a questionnaire composed of 60 closed questions that was completed by 531 participants representing 395 companies. Findings Based on the analysis of fifteen different attitude variables, the empirical findings are that immigrant managers/owners are more likely to show a positive attitude to participation in development programmes, in terms of nine of those attitude variables, than their native counterparts. Since there is no data about second generation of immigrants in the sample, thus this category may have had impact on the results. However, there is no possibility to identify any impact on the results. Originality/value There is no prior research focusing specifically on this question, and to the authors’ knowledge this study is the first that has attempted to deal with the issue. This study is based on a recent and unique database, and provides new evidence on the relationship between ethnicity and attitude towards participation in development programmes among entrepreneurs. Its context is different from that of prior research.

  • Competence-based analysis of needs in VET teachers and trainers: An
           Italian experience
    • Authors: Riccardo Sartori et al
      Abstract: European Journal of Training and Development, Volume 39, Issue 1, January 2015. Purpose In line with the EU’s ‘Education and Training 2020’ work program, the research here presented aimed at detecting the training needs of teachers and trainers working in the vocational education and training (VET) system in the Italian Region of Veneto, in order to design courses, experiences and other training programs tailored to meet the needs emerged. Design/methodology/approach Four focus groups were carried out with VET teachers and trainers, two before the construction and two after the online administration of an ad hoc questionnaire asking teachers and trainers to rate 67 competencies (43 for teachers, 24 for trainers) on the two dimensions of self-assessment (explicitly defined as the current level of mastery) and importance (explicitly defined as the expected level of mastery). 812 teachers and 166 trainers filled in the questionnaire which also asked them to give suggestions about the courses, experiences and other training programs to be designed. Findings In questionnaires, teachers and trainers declare they are competent enough to do what they do (self-assessment always obtains higher ratings than importance, except in one competence for teachers), even if in focus groups they say they want to be trained. Accordingly, they express a clear preference for short or very short courses, tailored on their specific needs, and for training experiences and programs which are alternative to classroom training. Practical implications The research is a preliminary action to an ESF (European Social Fund) project named ‘Training for trainers’, whose main aim is to give birth to courses, experiences and other training programs specifically dedicated to VET teachers and trainers in order to allow them to develop or refresh the competencies they feel they need for work. Besides, it allowed to test the benefit of using mixed methods for a competence-based analysis of needs. Originality/value Data will be used to design courses, experiences and other training programs that really meet the needs of VET teachers and trainers in Veneto, in order to tackle those aspects they consider really important for work in a lifelong learning perspective.

  • Identifying mentors for student employees on campus
    • Authors: David Frock et al
      Abstract: European Journal of Training and Development, Volume 39, Issue 1, January 2015. Purpose This exploratory research project sought an effective process for identifying supervisors of part-time student employees who also serve in a mentoring capacity. Design/methodology/approach This paper is based on a review of literature, and an evaluation process focused on established traits and functions of mentoring as applied to supervisors of student employees on a college campus. Findings Supervisors of student employees may have the desire and capacity to engage students on a higher level but are not viewed and supported to meet this need based on their position within in the organization. Untapped resources are being overlooked that would develop the supervisor and the student while advancing the overall institutional mission. Research limitations/implications A study identifying mentors for part-time undergraduate student employees in higher education settings was necessary as a precursor to future research on the human resource development needs of professional staff in higher education. Practical implications The results of this study confirmed the approach utilized for identifying mentors through specific traits is effective and that common barriers exist across the institution that negatively impact supervisors from serving as mentors. These results will be used to address future research related to the value of training and educating the supervisors of undergraduate student employees on college campuses. Originality/value Research exists on 360 evaluative processes, mentoring and the benefits of student development outside the classroom but no research could be identified that addressed the opportunities of using this approach to potentially resolve organizational issues.

  • Workforce ageing and the training propensity of Italian firms:
           Cross-sectional evidence from the INDACO survey
    • Authors: Marco Guerrazzi et al
      Abstract: European Journal of Training and Development, Volume 38, Issue 9, September 2014. Purpose In this paper, retrieving cross-sectional data from INDACO 2009, I take into consideration the propensity to offer vocational training of a large sample of Italian private firms. Design/methodology/approach Estimating a probit model, I asses how the age and the gender composition of the employed workforce as well as a set of relevant corporate characteristics such as size, sector, geographical location, innovation strategies, R&D investments and use of social safety valves are linked to the willingness of firms to supply on-the-job training. Findings First, as far as the average age of the whole employed workforce is concerned, I find that the propensity of surveyed firms towards training provision follows an inverted u-shaped pattern. Furthermore, I show that larger firms have a higher training propensity with respect to small firms and the same attitude holds for productive units that adopted innovation strategies and/or invested in R&D projects. By contrast, I find that the propensity to support training activities is negatively correlated to the percentage of employed women and the use social valves. Research limitations/implications The sample of business units taken into consideration is quite large but it has some biases towards larger and manufacturing firms. Moreover, the cross-sectional perspective of the analysis does not allow to implement the finer identification procedures that is possible to apply with panel data. Furthermore, the lack of employer-employee linked data does not allow to fully address the issue of compliance to training activities. Originality/value While there is a number of papers that study the age patterns of training participation by using workers’ data retrieved from personnel and/or labour force surveys, this work is the first attempt to provide a probabilistic assessment of the decisions of Italian firms regarding training provision by taking into account the ageing perspectives of the incumbent workforce.

  • Strengthening student engagement: What do students want in online
    • Authors: Misha Chakraborty et al
      Abstract: European Journal of Training and Development, Volume 38, Issue 9, September 2014. Purpose The purpose of this paper was to identify pertinent studies on the important issue of student engagement strategies in online courses and to establish from empirical studies student engagement strategies that work. Design/methodology/approach The paper adopted the literature review approach. The authors conducted a thorough and systematic search of the literature to find empirical studies focusing on online engagement strategies within the field of education and distance learning. To generate as many relevant publications as possible, both manual and electronic searches were conducted. The databases used included; Academic Search Complete (Ebsco), Social Sciences Full Text (Wilson), ProQuest Education Journals, ProQuest Dissertation and Thesis, ProQuest Central, Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCIISI), ERIC, (Ebsco), SAGE Full Text Collection (CSA), Google Scholar, and Emerald. Findings The results of this paper revealed the several factors that can create engaging learning experiences for the online learners. The primary factors are as follows: Creating and maintaining positive learning environment; Building Learning Community; Giving Consistent Feedback in Timely Manner; and Using the Right Technology to Deliver the Right Content. Research limitations/implications The paper is limited since it is based on review of literature. Empirical studies need to be conducted to support the ideas generated in this paper. For example, it is proposed that individual and institutional characteristics play an important role in promoting learner satisfaction in online courses. Additional studies that can explore this aspect in detail are needed. Originality/value The paper has both professional and educational implications. The findings of this paper can help identify areas where the instructors and designers of online classes need to focus. The student engagement strategies for online courses identified should assist both experienced and beginning online instructors in the design and successful delivery of online courses. Students taking online courses should find the results of this study invaluable.

  • Training evaluation levels and ROI: The case of a small logistics company
    • Authors: Carla Curado et al
      Abstract: European Journal of Training and Development, Volume 38, Issue 9, September 2014. Purpose This study’s purpose is to contribute to literature on training evaluation following Kirkpatrick’s four levels model and estimating each training program’s ROI using evidence from a small firm. Design/methodology/approach This case study uses data collected at a logistics company based upon training output indicators like training program evaluation data; individual performance evaluation reports; information on attained objectives; service and productivity levels; quality audit reports and accounting data. Findings Results show that all the training programs addressed report evaluation procedures at the four different levels (reactions, learning, behavior and results). ROI for each training program was estimated based upon costs and benefits associated to each program. The two training programs presenting above average returns address work quality and conditions. The program addressing corporate social responsibility issues produced below average results. Research limitations/implications Limitations to this study may result from collecting data in a single moment in time and using data from a single organization, excluding generalization and extrapolation of results. Practical implications This case study should inspire managers in SME to implement training evaluation practices and ROI estimation. Having the ROI estimation available allows a better management of the training budget since ROI's presentation is an argument to assign value and progress. Originality/value The originality of this study regards the way it reports training evaluation practices at the four levels established by Kirkpatrick’s framework (2005) and complements it with ROI estimation regarding five training courses run at a Portuguese SME logistics firm.

  • The sufficiency economy and people-centered development: The case of the
           Huay Sai Royal Development Project in Thailand
    • Authors: Nisada Wedchayanon et al
      Abstract: European Journal of Training and Development, Volume 38, Issue 9, September 2014. Purpose Sustainability is of central importance for many countries in the world. Especially developing countries need to strive for sustainability and continuity in their economic, social, and political systems. This paper aimed at identifying sustainable human resource development in relation to the Huay Sai Royal Development Project initiated by His Majesty the King Bhumipol Adulyadej of Thailand as a case study. The case examined the successful community development by enabling people to help themselves so that they could increase their career opportunities and recover the fertile natural environment previously lost through overstraining the local ecosystem. Design/methodology/approach This study was a case study. Data were collected from documents, interviews, and project visits. Then, the analysis was made by document analysis and observation during the study visit, and the information from the interviewees was recorded and transcribed in the Thai language. Some information from the interviews was then added to the analysis in order to confirm the case that the project had generated sustainable development and encouraged a better life for the local people. Findings It was found that the nature of people development for sustainability in the project was based on two central themes: people-centered development and whole system-focused development. People-centered development aims to make people succeed in their life. The latter theme aims at helping people become social beings that are willing to place societal concerns before personal interests. This reflected the eastern approach of people development, which puts people and their mindset at the center of development. Other findings pertaining to the methods of people development showed that action learning was a central method of development. Research limitations/implications The Sufficiency Economy and people-centered development served as an alternative development path, pursuing balanced growth based on development from within and on the accumulation of knowledge. The main thrust emphasized development from within, self-protection, conservation, caution, and moderation, which called for the sustainable use of resources and concern for the social and environmental impact of economic decisions. This contributed to the action learning approach that the success of the project was not only economic returns, but also the learning process to which the people engaging in dialogue could share their problems and develop solutions for themselves and for each other. Practical implications There were three main key success factors that can be seen in the case. First, the development approach was aligned with the lifestyle and local wisdom of the people. Secondly, this project promoted step-by-step development, beginning with building a good basis for the people at the individual level. Lastly, the initiation of the project stemmed from an in-depth study of the problems in the area and action research, with a closely-coupled monitoring system by which feedback was always fed into the study center. Originality/value The Sufficiency Economy strengthened sustainability as a goal and means of development; the ultimate goal of the development was to develop people to help themselves to become self-reliant. The means of this development were participatory development through a wide variety of methods and the use of local knowledge as a basis for cultivation. Sharing knowledge made people feel more empowered and encouraged them to change their basic attitudes and behaviors. Once people changed their mindset, they became able to enhance their potential. They also had the power to make choices in their life.
