Abstract

Saudi Arabia is embarking on large scale training to bring its national workforce to international standards (Nitaqat). International providers are generally employed for face-toface course delivery, using packaged course material. However, non-Saudi trainers generally lack understanding of the Saudi norms, and therefore misinterpret trainees’ responses. This study follows Al Gahtani’s (2002) call for research into factors impeding effective training and career development. The research problem therefore concerns the existence, frequency and efficacy of employee training in Saudi firms. The objective of this research is to investigate factors impeding employee training and thus career development of Saudis, and to recommend practices that lead to improved outcomes for the firms and the individuals.
