Training incidence and job-mobility in Switzerland
This paper analyzes the determinants of training and the impact training has on job-mobility. Contrary to previous studies we use different definitions for firm- subsidized training and differentiate between job-to-job- mobility and job-to-non-job-mobility. Using data from the Swiss Labour Force Survey between 1996 and 1999, we find that firm-subsidized training has no significant impact on voluntary quits and significantly reduces the workers probability to look for a new job. Moreover, the probability that a firm dismisses a worker who has previously been trained at the expense of the company is significantly reduced, although only in the short term.
