Abstract

Nowadays, the workplace has become a competitive environment full of global and domestic competition, rapid changes in technology and computerization and greater demand for time management. It requires employees regularly to learn new skill and gain new information. Therefore, transfer training is getting important in organization to identify the effectiveness of training. Studies revealed that transfer climate is one of the most important factors that contribute to transfer training. Thus, the purpose of the present research is to identify the effect of transfer climate on transfer training. Four types of transfer climate (supervisor support, peer support, the opportunity to use and rewards) were measured for 183 police officers who attended driver training programs to predict the effectiveness of transfer training on driving competency. Data was analysed using Statistic Package for Social Science (SPSS) Version 19.0 and SmartPLS 3.0. The results indicated that opportunity to use and rewards were significantly predicting driving competency. The results suggest that rewards and opportunity to use is potential tool to enhance transfer training.
