Abstract

This article analyzes the effects of employer investment in employees through formal and informal on‐the‐job training on job tenure and mobility for male and female workers, male supervisors, and male managers. Formal on‐the‐job training positively affects job tenure of male and female workers, firm tenure of male workers, supervisors, and managers, and mobility of male workers and managers. It negatively affects mobility of female workers. The results do not support arguments about the effects of informal on‐the‐job training on mobility and security, found to have a positive effect only on male managers’ firm tenure.
