The study examines the infl uence of individual and organisational factors on motivation and training. In particular, personality factors such as innovativeness, proactivity and dominance, work-related factors such as job involvement, and organisational support for training. These have all been found to infl uence training motivation viewed as a multidimensional construct. The aspects observed include motivation to learn and to obtain professional skills, the motivation to put new knowledge acquired in training into the workplace and the motivation to undergo training for the purpose of increasing status and social and company standing. The study was carried out on a sample of 382 adult employees in public and private organisational contexts and has confi rmed that a number of individual, work and organisational factors act together to influence training motivation.
