The importance of management training and development in the realization of organizational goals spend huge amount of money frequently in order to recruit employees regardless of their previous training, education and experience, needs to be introduces to their new employers work environment and to be shown how to perform specific tasks.
Moreover, specific occasions for training and development arise when employees are transferred to promoted or when the job changes and new skills must be learned, perhaps, because of changes brought about by technology and automation.
Furthermore, considerable body of researchers show that productivity of work group is affected by training and development. Experienced executives or management exports look at the future and prepare for it. One important way to do this is to develop and train the workforce so that they are able to cope with new demands, new problems and new changes. Rapid development in technology call for continual training of experienced workers to be able to perform new and changing jobs for these reasons, almost all organizations today offer some kind of formal training with sole aim of developing employees performance towards achieving organizations goals and proper utilization of scarce resources.
The society belief in occupational training is demonstrated in many ways. The federal, state, and local governments for many years have supported training and apprenticeship programmes like the establishment of industrial training fund (I.T.F), National Directorate of Employment (N.D.E) Universities and schools of higher learning. An increased or desirable level of productivity and better performance of workers no doubt depends on proper training and development. The Administrative staff college of Nigeria (A.S.C.O.N) is one the training and apprenticeship programmes established by the federal, state and local governments.
A poor performance in the productivity of workers can also be said to arise from inexperienced and lack of required knowledge for the job at state. Thus, this explains the importance of management training and development.
Workers in any organization constitute the most important asset in achieving organizational goals. Many organization have been affected negatively because of inappropriate skills of workers in the places of work due to lack of experience in their new places of works. This problem often leads to shutdown of production as a result of inappropriate training and development programmes on workers in most organisations.
There is the observation of general apathy towards workers by most organisations, for which first bank plc. Anyigba is no exception. This attitude by most organisations towards their staff gives room for poor performance, because inexperienced and unskilled personnel do not have the potentials needed or required to work up to expectation.
Poor training programmes is the bane of workers in first bank Nigeria, Anyigba. This is one potential source of frustration, which causes pent-up rage among the rank and file. Frustration can manifest itself in aggression against supervisor officers and the general public.
