1. Background of the Study

Employee training should be done to upgrade the staff knowledge and skills constantly to enable him/ her remain competitive and productive in the organization. For any organization to achieve a competitive advantage, each staff in every department must perform excellently. Training can be sold as key influences to improving the performance of individuals (Potts, 1998).
