Capacity Building and Employee Performance

Emmanuel Erastus Yamoah, Philip Maiyo


In this study, the primary objective was to ascertain whether capacity building has a significant effect on employee performance, with specific reference to MTN communication limited. The study considered the aspect of capacity building that deals with the development of the individual or a group of people. Using questionnaires, the researchers collected facts and analyzed them. The results of the study revealed that training when given properly has a significant effect on employee performance. However, it also established that training does not always answer job performance problems. Reward systems such as: salaries, bonuses and allowances were the major ingredients which fuel performance of employees.
