... ng and development on employee performance in the case of the National Financial Credit Bank (NFCB) in Cameroon. Three specific objectives were established including: Orientation and onboarding training, soft and technical skills training, and product and service knowledge training on employee performance. A case study design was adopted and supported by the philosophical underpins of positivism epistemology and objectivism ontology. Relevant data was sourced through questionnaire survey distributed to a target population of one hundred (100) employees of the NFC Bank in the centre region of Cameroon. Data was analysed using the Structured Equation Model (SEM) with all specifications observed. The study revealed that there is insignificant statistical evidence to suggest that orientation and onboarding training affects employees' performance. It was also noted that soft and technical skills training and product and service training all have significant positive statistical impacts on employees' performance. This study concludes that companies with management policies on soft and technical skills development and product and service knowledge training have higher chances to improve performance.
