German employers' inputs to employee skills development

Croucher, Richard ORCID logoORCID: and Brookes, Michael (2009) German employers' inputs to employee skills development. Industrial Relations, 48 (2) . pp. 231-236. ISSN 0019-8676 [Article] (doi:10.1111/j.1468-232X.2009.00555.x)


Using organizational level survey data, this article analyzes larger German private employers' inputs to employee skills development, to test the theory that unions and employers' associations raise employer incentives for training. Large German employers maintained their overall contribution between 1995 and 1999. Indicative data for 2004 suggest that this has continued, yet neither membership of employers' associations nor high union densities influenced it.
