The Effect of Training and Development Methods on Employee Satisfaction and Performance in Commercial Banks
Keywords:training and development methods; job satisfaction; job performance; commercial bank.
AbstractTraining and development efforts are instructional activities within an organization that aim to improve performance. These programs often involve increasing knowledge and skills, abilities that could be reasons for increasing job satisfaction and job performance. A training method is a strategy or technique for developing the knowledge, skills, and abilities of employees so that they can do their given tasks flawlessly. The organization must evaluate the nature of the job, the size of the organization and its employees, the types of employees, and the cost of adopting a training approach. Various organizations have identified and used many training methods based on training materials, time, costs, and types of tasks. The present study selected seven popular methods of training and development used frequently by the Commercial Bank of Bangladesh. For this study, it has been hypothesized that training and development methods positively impact employees’ satisfaction and performance from the perspective of commercial banks in Bangladesh. The current study is empirical in nature, implying the collection of both primary and secondary data. A structured questionnaire was used to collect primary data from employees of twelve commercial banks. The 250 questionnaires were distributed to the employees and collected. After sorting out the primary data, 200 questionnaires were used for analysis. The present study revealed that the informal learning method of training and development has a significant positive impact on employees’ satisfaction and performance in commercial banks in Bangladesh. The other two methods of training and development, i.e. job rotation and seminars, have a significant positive impact on creating employee satisfaction in the commercial banks of Bangladesh.
