Abstract

This research aims to examine the effects of Self-directed Learning and Organisational Learning Environment on Job Competencies among the employees of eight Government-Linked Companies in Kota Kinabalu. Demographic factors such as Age, Gender, Education Level and Working Experience were hypothesized to moderate the effects of Self-directed Learning and Organisational Learning Environment on Job Competencies. An empirical study was conducted to test the relationship between the three dimensions as expressed in the research framework, as well as the moderating effect of the demographic factors on the relationship. One hundred twenty seven (127) respondents from eight GLCs participated in the survey. The quantitative analysis showed that Self-directed Learning has a significant relationship with Job Competencies, while the hypothesis that Organisational Learning Environment has a significant relationship with Job Competencies was only partially supported. The findings also concluded that none of the demographic factors I.e. Age, Gender, Education Level and Working Experience have any moderating effects on the relationship between Self-directed Learning and Organisational Learning Environment with Job Competencies. The findings have Significance to human capital management practice within the realm of organisational learning and on the development of employees' job competencies.
