The ASEM LLL workplace learning survey in Japan was received from 106 respondents, collection rate 92%. This report focused on learning climate and mechanism of workplace learning (WPL) as the Learning Organization. Employees decided for themselves to take part in work-related courses because they just wanted to learn and to do their job well. They had high learning motivation and sense of responsibility for their works, so they wanted to improve their skills and abilities for themselves. Multivariable analyses were conducted in order to clarify a mechanism. 3 factors were derived as providing opportunities of WPL by organization, "providing WPL opportunities", "requirements of WPL", and "indirect supports to WPL".
All were not enough to be done, especially indirect supports. And 3 factors were derived as actual learning activities, "positive response", "WPL-management", and "WPL-job". While WPL-job was prevailing, WPL-management was not focused on. The relationship between opportunities and actual status was analyzed. Providing opportunities influenced to positive response and WPL management. Requirements had no influence to actual status, but indirect support influenced to positive response and WPL-job.
