Training, skills development, employee capability, employee performance


In this study, we investigated the relationship between the training of employees and their performance. Using the sample of 210 faculty members (lecturer, assistant professor, associate professor, and professor) serving in public sector universities of Pakistan, we explored the training (TRG), skill development (SD), and employees’ capability (EC) and found that these are positively and significantly related to the employees’ performance (EP). In other words, TRG, SD, and EC enhance the performance of employees as predicted. The current study has made a contribution to the empirical knowledge and elaborates various policy implications for stakeholders. Finally, we discussed the implications and future research that may increase our knowledge so as to understand the relationship of training and employees’ performance in organizational settings.
