Many studies show a positive correlation between staff training and firm productivity,
explaining why firms, including Kenyan Sugar Sector Finns, use it. However, many training
programs exist leading to choice dilemma. Some firms employ particular training programs
and reap the benefit in terms of improved perfonnance, while others employ other training
programs and do not. This variability shows that some particular training programs have
greater contributory magnitude to organizational effectiveness than others. Unfortunately,
little is known on the extent to which each training program impacts on performance, or, the
contributory magnitude each training program has on organizational effectiveness. This study
therefore investigates the impact of training strategies on organizational effectiveness of Sony
Sugar Company. Specifically, it has detennined the magnitude of contribution each distinct
training strategy has on the overall performance of the firm.
A cross sectional sample survey was used to provide a representative sample. Proportionate
Stratified Random Sampling method was used in selecting a sample size of 146 permanent
workers from all the departments for this study. Open and closed ended questionnaires were
used to gather primary data from respondents. Secondary data has also been used. For data
analysis, descriptive statistics has been used. Data collected summarized in tabular form, and
presented in graphs. The study found that different training programs have differently distinct
contributions to organizational effectiveness at various function departments. It also found
that SonySugar uses more frequently training strategies with minimal contribution to
organizational ,effectiveness, and less frequently training program; with greater contributory
effect on finn. perfonnance. It therefore recommended a stoppage of repeated usage of
seminars and conference training methods with inferior contributions to perfonnance, and
instead, adoption of a more frequent usage of role playing and mentoring methods with
Secondly, the study recommended that a generalized /overlapping implementation of training
programs to all departments should be avoided.
This study is V\!ry important as it is to significantly boost performance of the Kenyan Sugar
sector finns by eliminating ad hoc implementation of training programs which always leads
to additional costs at no returns.
