Hung, H. & Wong, Y.H. (2007). The relationship between employer endorsement of continuing education and training and work and study performance: a Hong Kong case study. International Journal of Training & Development (11)4. 295-313.

In “The relationship between employer endorsement of continuing education and training and work and study performance: a Hong Kong case study,” Hung & Wong (2007) draw on psychological contract theory and expectancy disconfirmation theory to hypothesize that employer endorsement of continuing education will positively impact 1) work life in perceived organizational support, job satisfaction and job performance and 2) study life in learner satisfaction, motivation to learn, and learning outcomes. Hung & Wong conducted a survey of over four hundred university students in Hong Kong using a Likert-type scale to measure these work and study life constructs. A significant positive relationship was found between employer endorsement and all work and study life constructs. Hung & Wong suggest further research into different types of employer support to provide a richer picture of the relationship.
