Do They Bother? Employer Training of Temporary Workers

Abstract

Using the backdrop of an economy emerging from a decade of restructuring and on the brink of the longest expansion on record, this paper is an exploratory work that examines employer-provided training to temporary workers and the characteristics of firms associated with that training. The focus is on the training of two types of temporary workers: intermediated workers employed by temporary agencies and working for other firms and "in-house" temporary workers who are employed by the firm for which they are working. Results indicate that factors associated with the training of regular or standard employees differ from those factors associated with the training of temporaries. Further, factors associated with the training of the two types of temporary workers differ.
