Abstract: The major objective of the study was to investigate the effectiveness of training as a means of retaining staff. Data was collected using a questionnaire. The findings of the study revealed that the organization was training its workers by coaching, sponsorship, job attachment, role modeling, mentoring and using workshops. Training was discovered to be leading to motivation, commitment, job satisfaction and retention of workers. The major recommendation of the study was that organizations should give meaningful training to their workers so as to increase motivation of workers and retain them on the job. Organizations should allow on job further studying of the employees. They should not only allow workers to go for further studies but sponsor them and even pay them their salary while on study leave. The researcher's null hypothesis stated that training does not lead to job satisfaction and there by does not lead to employee retention. The alternate hypothesis stated that training increases job satisfaction motivates workers and therefore leads to retention. The study findings however agreed with the alternate hypothesis. The methods employed by the researcher in the study included questionnaires and observations. The data collected was coded and later analyzed using SPSS Statistical Computer Package. The infmmation generated by the program was then used by the researcher to make conclusions and recommendations.
