1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Organizational efficiency and effectiveness simply imply the need for establishment of organized structures for higher productivity and the achievement of the stated objectives of such organization. One method of organizing higher productivity is for the human resources to be strengthened by the way of workforce to acquire skills. This underscores the need for training as well as manpower development. We know that the effectiveness of an organization in achieving the stated objectives is dependent on many variables. Training is undertaken in order that human potentials may be realized and utilized to the maximum advantage of the organization. This can also be utilized more fully to the mutual benefits of the individual organization, its immediate community and the world at large.
Training is therefore, regarded as a process of developing an individual in order to increase his performance standards with a given job, occupation, trade, profession etc. In fact, every organization must regard training of the employees as a paramount responsibility if it requires them to perform competently and become adaptable to its need and aspirations. Training therefore prepares the employees adequately for job and assist the employees to improve the knowledge, skills and attitudinal needs in their current jobs. It also prepares them for management succession and promotion to higher responsibilities. The need therefore, for training cannot be over emphasized.
