The purpose of this paper is to analyse the rewards for training in the Spanish wine sector.


Through a questionnaire, Rioja wineries’ employees were asked about the training rewards in the sector. It is addressed different types of rewards (monetary and non-monetary) and contrasted with job category and functions of employees. The hypotheses were confirmed through ANOVA.


In the theoretical section, the importance of the learning environment is discussed. The development of a learning environment promotes workplace learning. Empirically, there are no significant differences in the effects on perceptions between rewards tied to training, the job category or job function of the employees in the company.


The importance of rewards as tools to moderate the behaviour of employees is discussed. It is found that the employees’ position in the company is not related to the type of training reward.
