Abstract

Training programs are an important tool of human resource management, especially in case of technological and organizational changes inside a company. According to the human capital theory, trainings generally lead to increased post-training wages. Having this into consideration, this paper aims to evaluate the effects of trainings on the Romanian migrants’ income by conducting propensity score matching, as a novelty in the field. Both the treatment group and the control group were selected from an online survey conducted in 2010 upon the Romanian migrants worldwide. The results confirmed the human capital theory, indicating that after attending trainings Romanian migrants should expect higher incomes.
