The paper presents empirical study which attempts to explain the relationships
between employees’ organizational commitment and their initiation
of trainings. Initiation of training activity can be understood as a goal realization
process and explained by using goal theories. Three phases of the process are analyzed:
intention to undertake training, plan formulation, and actual training participation.
Data from 202 employees were collected in a 3-month two-wave study.
The findings show that each of the three dimensions of organizational commitment
demonstrates different relationships with the phases of training initiation process.
Continuance commitment is negatively, however weakly, correlated with all three
phases of the process, normative commitment is unrelated, and affective commitment
is positively correlated with intention to undertake training in the group of
employees with less seniority. Organization size and employee seniority are significant
moderators of some of analysed relationships.
