Abstract

This study explores determinants of middle-aged workers' participation in job training and provides implications to vitalizing middle-aged workers' participation in job training, using logistic regression analysis of Korea Labor Institute (KLIPS) data. As a result, among individual characteristics of older workers, residence in the metropolitan area, family relationship satisfaction, and household status have a significant effect on participation in job training. Regarding job and individual work characteristics, current work experience has a positive relationship. While for corporate characteristics, presence of unions and availability of statutory severance pay have a significant effect on participation in job training. Consequently, this study provides implications for vitalizing the older workers' participation in job training.
