Organisations devise training programmes to ensure that employees make an effective contribution to enterprise success. Not all organisations are likely to provide training, however, because there are significant trade-offs involved in terms of both costs and benefits. This article discusses the organisational determinants of training: larger establishments with complementary technological systems, well established internal labour markets and organisations which employ an educated workforce are more likely to adopt a well-defined training strategy. Public policy may also influence microinstitutions of learning and development. The influence of many such factors underlines the need for a valuebased analysis to help organisations make optimal decisions about the choice of training.
