Abstract


The role of training in human resource management practice has spur renewed and vigorous debate about the
need for training and development. The debate has led academics and management to ponder on some issues
germane to the benefits or otherwise of training. Is training an investment in people or cost? If training is
required, what are the criterion used to determine who should be trained and when to train? These questions have
permeated management circle and those in HRM department. Recent years have seen training terms renamed as
training and development or learning and development, a sign of the spate of debate on the issue. Given these
flurry, this paper explores the relationship between training and employees’ commitment to their organisation.
The paper was based on a survey of 250 employees and management staff of a financial firm based in the South
Western part of Nigeria. Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to conduct several forms of
analysis. The analysis revealed some evidence that suggest a positive statistical significant relationship between
the different levels of training and employees’ commitment to organisation. A regression analysis was conducted
on the data collected. The study revealed a positive statistical significant relationship between the different levels
of training and employees’ commitment to the organisation. The paper concludes that the more the training
giving to employees, the higher their level commitment to the organisation.
