The dire skills shortage exacerbated by the “brain-drain” experienced in South Africa brought the debate around the importance of training across industries at the centre stage. South Africa as one of the strong emerging economies is arguably not performing as well as it should. Investment in human capital in the form of skills transfer has never been as critical as it is today. It is a known fact that the quality of an organisation is to a large degree, determined by the quality of people it employs. The aim of this paper is in two-fold, firstly, reporting on the reliability and validity of a developed measuring instrument used in this study based on Kirkpatrick’s evaluation of training framework. Secondly, reflecting on the views expressed by (N = 118) purposively sampled employees regarding the impact of skills transfer on their performance.
Key words: Skills transfer, employee motivation, reliability, validity, performance, factor analysis.
