Abstract

This article investigates intensity and composition of off-the-job training investments of Italian and British firms in relation to their workforce heterogeneity with respect to the presence of non-standard workers. The main purpose is to assess the relationship between off-the-job training volumes and composition and the recourse to the main types of non-standard employment, i.e. temporary and part-time contracts, at firm level. Empirical evidence drawn from national surveys of the two countries shows more similarities than expected in terms of the correlation between non-standard employment and training volumes whilst substantial differences arise when disaggregating training interventions according to the types of skills to be developed. Both institutional settings and the different role of part-time and temporary employment in the labour markets of the two countries contribute to interpretation of results.
