Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine how organizational learning culture influences employees’ motivation towards transfer of training. Also, how this relationship was affected by the existence of a favorable learning transfer climate in context of knowledge workers. Sample for this study (n = 122) was drawn from academicians working at various business schools in India. The perception towards their own organization’s learning culture, learning transfer climate and their willingness to transfer knowledge from Faculty Development Programs to their teaching and research was measured. Hierarchical regression analysis was used to test the hypotheses and it was found that a positive perception of organizational learning culture was positively related to willingness to transfer training. This relationship was significantly moderated by an important dimension of learning transfer climate which are resistance to change and partially moderated by another dimension- performance coaching.
