Pearson correlation test was used to determine the relationship between organizational commitment (r=0.438, p<0.01), perceived importance of training (r=0.581, p<0.00), supervisor support (r=0.576, p<0.00), organizational culture (r=0.475, p<0.00) and motivation of employees toward training. Findings of this study showed that there were significant relationships between all these factors with motivation of employees toward training.
