Almeida-Santos, F. and Mumford, K. (2005) Employee training and wage compression in Britain. Manchester School, 73 (3). pp. 321-342. ISSN 1463-6786
We use linked data for 1460 workplaces and 19,853 employees from the Workplace Employee Relations Survey 1998 to analyse the incidence and duration of employee training in Britain. We find training to be positively associated with having a recognized vocational qualification and current union membership. However, being non-white, having shorter current-job tenure and part-time or fixed-term employment statuses are all associated with less training. Furthermore, in line with recent non-competitive training models, higher levels of wage compression (measured in absolute or relative terms) are positively related to training.
