THE REPORT OF FACTORS INFLUENCE ON TRANSFER OF TRAINING

The results strongly support the predicted links, although not all the predictor variables contributed a statistically significant share of the explained variance of the training outcomes. Motivation to learn and learning goal orientation were found to contribute most to predicting training outcomes. 2) Working environment influence to the transfer of training.

For this purpose, data was collected from 350 employees of private manufacturing firms in the Yangon region, Myanmar. The results of SPSS version 17.0 with multiple regression analysis indicated that three work environment factors (peer support, opportunity to use, and feedback) were significantly and positively related to transfer of training.
