    Abstract

    This paper addresses the question as to whether individuals benefit from participating in HRD activities. In particular, the question is addressed whether participating in these activities lead to a higher job level and/or higher income. The results, obtained through means of a linear regression analysis and based on a sample of 1957 respondents, show that participating in HRD activities has a significant but modest impact on individuals' job level. In fact, HRD activities are the secondly most explaining group of variables with regard to the variance in job level. Subsequently, participation in HRD activities has also a significant, but very small impact on individuals' income. Other variables included in the analysis, such as gender, level of initial qualification, work experience, and job level explain far more of the variance in income.
