Use google scholar for finding articles.
We will do some scholar research on whether and when employers should invest in employee training this week! Please read the instruction.
The standard economic theory predicts that firms will not invest in general training (where trained KSAOs are transferrable to other organizations) and will under-invest in firm-specific training (where trained KSAOs are NOT transferrable to other organizations) because firms can lose training investment to other firms if employees switch jobs or are poached by competitors.

However, employer-sponsored training is prevalent in practice.
Find 3 scholarly articles citing the seminal work of “Investment in human capital: A theoretical analysis”, Becker, 1962, that discuss the topic of why, when and whether employers should invest in employee training and present the main conclusions of the research articles.
