Abstract

Using panel data of Japanese women, this paper analyzes who participates in firm-initiated training programs and the effect of this participation on wage level and wage growth. The analysis found that workers with stronger educational backgrounds are more likely to participate in firm-initiated training activities. Training participation and wage are positively correlated. Even after controlling for endogenous selection into training participation by a first-difference estimation, current training participation significantly explains current wage growth.
