ABSTRACT

Training is of growing importance to companies or institutions seeking to gain an advantage among competitors. There is significant debate among professionals and scholars as to the effect that training has on both employee and organizational goals. The main purpose of this study was to determine the effects of training and development practices on employee’s productivity in the public service, a case of the ministry of Interior and National Coordination Kakamega Central Sub County. The study was conducted in two Divisions that make up Kakamega Central Sub-county that is Lurambi and Municipality with 5 Locations namely; South,Butsotso, Central, Butsotso East, Bukhungu and Shieywe Location with a population of 250 employees. Out of 250 employees, the study targeted 20%. Data was collected using questionnaires and interview schedules. The collected data was organized under different variables and the frequencies established. Percentages and tables were calculated to allow for the use of descriptive statistics. The results were then presented in the frequency tables. The second level of the data analysis involved inferential statistics where Karl Pearson’s correlation was used to establish the relationship among the variables. The findings showed that some, (40%) of the employees had training while majority (60%) had not been given any training. The research also revealed that majority of the employees (70%) did not know the criteria used to select employees for training. The study further established that overwhelming majority of the respondents (84%) believed that training has positive effect on their performance. The study therefore recommends that the ministry reviews its training and development policy through evaluation of training for its effectiveness.
