Abstract

Transfer of training is vital to organizations. This is because organizations invested lots of money for sending their employees to training in order to increase the employees’ knowledge, skills, and abilities. From the training they attended, it is crucial for the
employees to apply the learned knowledge in the workplace. This study examined factors influencing transfer of training among Malaysian public sector officers. The factors involved in this study are individual, training and organizational factors towards transfer of training. The individual factor’s dimensions are self-efficacy, motivation to learn and intent to transfer towards transfer of training. The training factor’s dimensions are perceived content validity and transfer design whereas the organizational factor’s dimensions are supervisor support, peers support and opportunity to use. A total of 293 Administrative and Diplomatic officers in Malaysia participated in this study. Correlation analysis and regression analysis were performed to test the research hypotheses. The result of this findings revealed that individual and organizational factors such as self-efficacy, motivation to learn, supervisor support, peers support and opportunity to use have significant and positive influence on transfer of training. Besides, individual factor and training factors such as intent to transfer, perceived content validity and transfer design did not influence transfer of training. Discussions elaborated on the research findings. Additionally, this study also discussed theoretical and practical implications, limitations of the study, directions for future research, and conclusion.
