Training and Efficiency: A Quantitative Survey of Administrative Officials in Local Self-Government Authorities

Abstract

This paper presents the results of a quantitative survey that was conducted on local self-government officials of the municipality of Larissa, with the aim of exploring their views on the contribution of training to their job performance. It also investigated whether these views differ according to the officials’ gender, age and seniority. The research results showed that officials recognise the benefits of training, in terms both of their personal efficiency and of the efficiency of the organisation where they work. These views do not appear to be statistically significantly different, on the basis of predefined variables.

Keywords: Administrative Officials, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Local Self-Government
