Effects of administrator's role in training programmes and trainees' motivation on training maintenance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between the administrator's role (i.e., communication and delivery mode) in training programmes, trainees' motivation, and training maintenance. Data were collected from 123 employees of various military health centres in Malaysia. The results of SmartPLS path model analysis revealed two important findings: firstly, communication and trainees' motivation are positively and significantly related to training maintenance. Secondly, delivery mode and trainees' motivation are positively and significantly related to training maintenance. As a whole, these findings posit that trainees' motivation does act as an effective mediating variable in the relationship between the administrator's role in training programmes and training maintenance in the studied organizations. Further discussions, implications and conclusion are presented in the succeeding sections.
