Training and Development Practices and their Influence on Workers' Job Performance


Training is the most crucial variable in each area, as it increases workers' and the organization's competency and viability. It enhances employees' skills because, without training, workers fall short of the abilities anticipated for their responsibilities. Therefore, the researcher has investigated the present study to provide recommendations either to find a permanent solution to the existing problem or to decrease the existence of the present condition. The present study employed a descriptive research design, utilizing a questionnaire as the primary tool for data collection. The respondents for this study were employees at an international ministry. The researcher used a validated survey questionnaire to gather data from 60 respondents. The results revealed the substantial impact of training and development on job performance, highlighting its pivotal role in achieving excellence and competencies across various dimensions. The identified strong positive relationship between training/development and job performance emphasizes the integral role played by these initiatives in enhancing the capabilities and overall performance of the Ministry's workforce. Based on the study's findings, recommendations for the Ministry include the continuation of needs-based program design, aligning training initiatives with organizational goals, and maintaining a sufficient budget allocation for ongoing workforce development.
