The quality of the human resource of an organization is essential to its success. Thus, every organization must seek to improve the quality of its workforce. One way of achieving this is through training and development programs. The importance of training and development programs can only be appreciated with a clear understanding of its direct impact on employee performance. The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of training and development programs on employee performance. The data for this study has been collected through a structured questionnaire by conducting a survey. The sample size of this study is 100 and is chosen based on convenience sampling technique from different chemical and manufacturing industries of Bangladesh. All the data of this study were processed and analysed through SPSS 20. The value of Cronbach Alpha was 0.725, means that the data of this study is reliable according to Nunnaly, (1978). Hypotheses were tested through multiple regression analysis. From the findings, it has found that Orientation Training (OT), Career Development Training (CDT), and Environment, Health & Safety Training (EHST) have the significant impact on Employee Performance (EP) while there was no significant relation between Job Training (JT) and Employee Performance (EP). Eventually, this study was concluded by providing a few recommendations for organisational implication.
