Abstract

RESEARCH various attitudes associated with job training has on usually been centered around modifications of attitudes towards work during training and the relationship of these work attitudes to later job performance. Friedlander and Greenberg (197 1) found, for example, that these work attitudes (e.g., motivation to work, importance of job characteristics) among trainees with a history of chronic unemployment were not modified during a two-week orientation training program. These attitudes were also unrelated to later job performance as measured by supervisor ratings and absenteeism. Denova (1969) found that a job training program for aerospace trainees was effective in improving job satisfaction and that favorable job attitudes were negatively correlated with subsequent turnover. Finch (197 1) showed that trainee's attitudes toward automotive repair were uniquely associated with the accuracy of automobile trouble-shooting performance after completion of training. In military situations, attitudes toward combat and physical injury during basic training have been found to be related to performance ratings by Army commanders (Stouffer et al., 1949).
