Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

5.1 Summary

The importance of training and development in the corporate world has been highlighted in the previous literature. Thus, it is essential to examine any issues related to training and development in any business sector. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of training on employee performance within the financial institutions in Nigeria. Moreover, sub goals are developed to facilitate a clear achievement of the purpose of the study. Three research objectives were formulated and three hypothesis. The sample of the study is based on 20 staff of union bank Plc. The study concludes that if the right employees are sent on training through the systematic training procedure of identifying and selecting employees for training, there would be a significant improvement on the organizational performance. Therefore, for organizations to become more productive and remain in business, especially in this era of increased global competitiveness and growing complexity of the work environment, adequate training need assessment should be conducted by the Human Resource (HR) department before sending employees on training.


5.2 Conclusion and Recommendation

This study shows that training and development have an impact on the performance of employees with regards to their jobs. This result is broadly consistent with prior management literature on training and development. In order to gain more specific knowledge of training and development from the sample companies, different questions are presented to the respondents and thus examined. These questions are focusing on employee participation in training, selection for training, methods of training and relevance of training to the work of the respondents. The above questions have been of particular interest because they facilitate an understanding of the training practice in the companies under study. The results from the questions on employee participation in training and selection for training indicate that these companies have good and perhaps clear policies regarding training and development as most of the respondents indicated that they have participated in training and that most of them were provided with opportunities to train under the compulsory practice of the company for all employees and/or on joining the company.

Thus the following were recommended;

  1. Employees should be encouraged to embrace other developmental courses that could impact on their general performance and increase organizational performance.
  2. Heads of Department should be sensitized on the importance of sending the right employee on training. They should not see training opportunities as pay back and opportunities for their loyalists.
  3. Recommending employees for training based on favoritism should be discouraged by the management.
  4. A mechanism should be created for proper assessment and evaluation of employee performance after training. Some of the employee performance indicators enumerated in this research work could be adopted by the organizations.
