Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of environmental uncertainty and the specificity of human resources on training participation rates of Korean workers, in the light of the theory of transaction costs proposed by Williamson(1975, 1985). According to the theory of transaction costs, workers participate more in training as the environmental uncertainty surrounding firms increases and the specificity of human capital possessed by workers deepens. This study tests whether or not the predictions coming from the theory of transaction costs can conform with training participation behavior of Korean workers. The obtained results indicate that the theory of transaction costs does not explain well the training participation behavior of Korean workers in general. Environmental uncertainty tends to increase training participation of workers, but the specificity of human capital does not. Interaction between environmental uncertainty and the specificity of human capital also has no effect on the training participation rate. The results of this study indicates that Korean companies have not adopted an efficient system of human resources management in terms of reducing transaction costs.
