Transfer of training to the workplace is often analysed by different models whose aim is to evaluate the impact of training on organizations (Kirkpatrick, 1959; Le Boterf, 1991 and Pineda, 2003 & Phillips, 2006). In some cases, there are models which are only focused on the evaluation of training transfer as a tool which allows us to get to know the effectiveness of training (Noe & Smith, 1986; Olsen, 1998 & Holton, 2005) and which identifies variables that may act either as facilitators or barriers and can be grouped according to factors concerning learner, training activity design and delivery or workplace environment (Baldwin and Ford, 1988 and Burke and Hutchins, 2007). Ultimately, there are some authors who are merely focused on the analysis of those variables closely related to workplace environment in which new learning is supposed to be applied (Clarke, 2002; Gumuseli & Ergin, 2002; Chiaburu, Van Dam & Hutchins, 2010 & Van den Bossche, Segers & Jansen, 2010).
