Abstract

The study examined the effect of training on performance among selected small hotels in North central Nigeria. Survey design was adopted and data were collected using a five-point Likert scale questionnaire from a sample of 383 respondents. The data were coded and analyzed using simple linear regression in SPSS. The study found that training positively and significantly affects productivity while training positively but insignificantly affects employees’ engagement among selected hotels. Therefore, the study recommends that small hotels should implement training programmes that help employees perform their jobs better and should seek other methods of committing and engaging employees such as better welfare and motivational packages.

Key Words: Training, employee performance, employee productivity, employee engagement, small hotel.
