ABSTRACT

Kenyan public universities needed an empirical study to guide them on how they should handle employee development programs of their non-teaching staff. Thus, this study sought to fill this empirical gap by finding out the effect of employee development programs on non-academic staff’s performance in Kenyan Public Universities. This study adopted descriptive research design that involved a filed survey and questionnaires to collect data. It target 2174 respondents of non-teaching staff.  Simple random and purposive sampling was used to select 327 employees as respondents from all the public universities. The study used SPSS to analyzed data. The study revealed that employee development and support influence performance in public universities but not to a large extend as indicated in R squared of 0.8 percent and 0.54 percent. The study recommends that Public Universities should use other motivational strategies and a well designed appraisal procedure to evaluate staff alongside staff development.
