Case 4 : The Interconnectedness of Formal and Informal Training (2008)

This case study involves nine employees at a High Liner Foods frozen seafood processing plant in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, who participated in an advanced communication program offered at the workplace. The data for this study comes from these workers as well as adult education instructors who shared their thoughts, experiences and observations about learning. In her study, the author examines the interplay between informal and formal training and the association between organizational support for learning and employee participation in both formal and informal workplace learning. She also discusses workers' decisions to participate in training, the benefits of training, informal learning behaviours and attitudes towards lifelong learning.
