Al-Emadi, M.A.S. & Marquardt, M.J. (2007). Relationship between employees’ beliefs regarding training benefits and employees’ organizational commitment in a petroleum company in the State of Qatar. International Journal of Training & Development (11)1. 49-70.
Al-Emadi and Marquardt (2007) consider the dynamics of training and organizational commitment in “Relationship between employees’ beliefs regarding training benefits and employees’ organizational commitment in a petroleum company in the State of Qatar.” These authors examine beliefs about personal, career and job-related benefits of training on affective, continuance and normative components of commitment in a state-owned petroleum company with the use of Meyer and Allen’s (1997) three components of organizational commitment questionnaire and Noe and Wilk’s (1993) benefits of employee training questionnaire. Results showed that personal and career benefits are significantly related to all three components of organizational commitment. Job-related benefits, however, were not related to affective or normative commitment. These authors make several suggestions about the implications of the relationship between training and organizational commitment, including the development of formal processes for monitoring employee commitment.
