Before actual data collection, a pilot study was conducted at one institution which was not part of study sample where Cronbachs Alpha of greater than 0.7 in each category of the questionnaire was obtained, signifying that the instrument was reliable. Findings revealed that the level of employees performance effectiveness was high. This might be due to the fact that they were provided with regular training in terms of orientation, off-job training, on-job training and coaching/mentoring.
