Using information from the work histories of a sample of individuals residing in a UK locality, a model of labour mobility is estimated which controls for ages and tenure, union membership, and other influence on labour turnover. Introducing information on spells of job-related training into this model, controlling for unobserved heterogeneity, shows the anticipated negative relationship between training and turnover for females-those receiving training are less likely to leave their employers. For males a weaker, negative relationship is observed. The finding for males is interesting, consistent with US research and with the often expressed concerns of employers, that training does not help reduce turnover.
