Training, Development and Organisational Performance
Manpower training and development are based on the premise that skills need to be improved for organization to grow. Physical, social, intellectual and mental training is very essential in facilitating the level of productivity and development of personnel in an organization. Absence of these programmes result to incompetence, inefficiency and ineffectiveness of employees in organisation. The study was a survey/descriptive research conducted among one hundred (100) employees of selected business organizations in Oredo local government area of Edo state, Nigeria with headquarter in Benin-City. Five Likert point structured questionnaires containing thirty five (35) items were used as instruments for data collection. Results from the study showed that organizational performance depends largely on manpower training and development. In view of this, the researchers recommend that business organizations should have regular and well-though out training programmes for their employees. Indeed, the researchers also called for the involvement of experts in the design and implementation of manpower training and development programmes in the organisation.
