Abstract

The main objective of this research was to investigate the effects of training on employees’ job perfor- mance mediated by their organizational commitment in Libyan banks. A quantitative research design has been adopted to conduct this study by investigating 426 valid responses collected from face to face questionnaire survey. The respondents were selected from 45 branches of banks located in Tripoli of Libya using simple random sampling method. IBM SPSS (version 25) and SmartPLS (version 4) sta- tistical programs have been used to analyze the data and validate the proposed hypotheses. This study finds that training has a positive and significant effect on employees’ organizational commitment, whereas it has no effect on employees’ job performance. Furthermore, employees’ organizational com- mitment has a full mediation effect between training and employees’ job performance. The outcome from this research has contributed to new practical insights. The study concludes that Libyan banks that are seeking to enhance their employees’ performance through training practices should integrate to eval- uate their job performance and specifically focus on their organizational commitment attributes.
