Abstract:
The attainment of training effectiveness through transfer of training on the job has become an issue of great concerned to both practitioners and human resource development researchers. In view of the fact that, training schemes does not impact on the behaviours of trainees back to workplace and researches conducted on training effectiveness are descriptive in nature and does not examine how factors determining training effectiveness impact on training effectiveness. Thus, institutions commit billions of dollars in organizing training intervention schemes every year in which many learned competencies reportedly are not transfer to the work setting. Inconsistencies remained and organizations find it difficult to pinpoint exactly which factors are most critical in determining training effectiveness. This study investigates the effects of opportunity to perform and trainee motivation on training effectiveness. The study distributed a self-administered survey questionnaire to 428 non-academic administrative staff and academic administrative staff from various tertiary educational institutions in Nigeria. The data collected was analyzed through Partial Least Squares (PLS) path modeling. The results from path model supported the direct positive and significant influence of opportunity to perform on training effectiveness. Similarly, trainee motivation was found to have a significant and positive effect on training effectiveness. Finally, the implications of the study are discussed.
