Kweku Esia-Donkoh, Hagar Bampoh-Addo, Deborah Afful


Employee training and development are considered critical when it comes to employee efficiency, effectiveness and productivity.  The proposition of this paper was that employee training and development could ensure efficiency and effectiveness in university administration.  The paper focused on the benefits of training and development, and training methods.  It also buttressed some training and development programmes in Ghanaian universities.  The paper concluded that the success of every organization, including universities, depends heavily on quality human resources.  It therefore follows that there is the need for universities in Ghana to ensure that programmes designed for training and development are holistic in nature to equip employees with the requisite knowledge, attitude, skills and experience for job effectiveness.  It is thus recommended that management of universities, especially those in Ghana should make training and development programmes a continuous activity to maintain and appraise employees’ skill levels, and motivate them to grow and improve professionally.
