1.1  Background to the Study
To efficiently manage and achieve set objectives of an organization both large and small, it involves acquiring and utilizing the right calibre of staff in their right numbers at the right time. The formal educational system does not adequately provide students with all the needed skills for the job market and there have been the need for employers to train new recruits to enhance their skills for the job market. It is therefore incumbent on the employer to train and develop these fresh graduates to enable them have the needed skills, knowledge, abilities and competencies needed for the work. It has therefore become necessary for many organizations to engage in extensive training and development of their employees especially those who are employed just from school to enable them acquire the necessary skills to be able to make meaningful contribution towards the organization’s growth (Luo, 2000).

Training is necessary in view of advancement in modern world given the growing complexity of the work environment, the rapid change in organizational and technological advancement which in turn necessitates the need for training. The role played by staff training can no longer be over-emphasized as many have come to recognize that training offers a way of developing skill, enhancing productivity, guaranteeing quality of work and building worker’s loyalty to the firm.
Organizational goals also keep changing in line with the realities of the time; technology keep getting sophisticated; customers and clients of organization become more choosy and conscious of their rights in demanding organizational products and services, and organization product and service keep changing in response to their choice. These keep increasing the need for well-trained employees (Okotoni and Erero, 2005).
Today, we are witnessing an overwhelming number of research studies from both descriptive and prescriptive traditions, focusing on several characteristics of training programs as well as their costs and benefits for business organizations (Becker and Gerhart, 1996). At the same time, organizations have come to better understand the significance of training for their survival in knowledge-intensive and volatile markets of this era, and thus have increasingly acknowledged the profitability of developing their human resources through various forms of training (Berge, 2001; Salas and Cannon, 2001). Human resource capital of any organization plays an important role, thus training and retraining helps in fortifying employees (Khan, 2011).

Many organizations in Africa and especially Nigeria perform training activities in an ad hoc and haphazard way. Training in these organizations is more or less unplanned and unsystematic and even where there is a planned training programme, financing becomes a problem. Training which normally starts off in this unplanned manner may provide general knowledge to employees but may not help in solving real job related problem. The problem with training in our part of the globe stems from the fact that there is less competition in the market, rate of growth of technology is low and most employers see training of their employees as a favour to the employees.

Despite the obvious significance of training, the enormous expansion in the content of training programs over time has largely been taken for granted. Some Human Resources Departments rarely question the necessity and appropriateness of training a particular employee at a particular time. Often times, there are ulterior motives why employees are sent on training. Mourdoukoutas (2012) found out that some of those organizations that neglect employee training do so because of the huge cost of training and the fear of losing those employees after training them.

The training and development of the employees has direct contributions in the high achievements of organization which shows better performance. Training increased the organizational performance which was predicted by many researches (Peteraf, 1993; Niazi, 2011). Performance of an organization is defined as how effective and efficient managers use organizational resources to satisfy customers and achieve organizational goals and objectives. Ideally, the more employees are trained and are satisfied with their work and environmental conditions, the more they can help enhance their organizations' performance.
