dc.description.abstract The research involves a survey of training within lame organizations (business and industry) in Indiana. The survey attempted to identify any relationship between the size of the organization and the type of employee trained, the skills employees are taught and the training techniques. Also, the primary area of business was compared to the types of employees trained, the skills taught and the types of training techniques used to determine if a relationship exists. The research involved only those organizations which employed five hundred or more people in the state of Indiana.The organizations which were surveyed include: manufacturing, transportation, public utilities, retail, finance, insurance, real estate, and service organizations. There are approximately three hundred businesses which fit into these specifications according to the latest census. Results of this showed small amounts of training occurring in Indiana. The results were so scattered among the primary area of business that they were not feasible for use. Only manufacturing and service organizations had enough returns for significant data. Using only these two would have been swaying the results. The primary area of business comparisons are available in Appendix C. On the other hand, the size comparisons did provide high enough in three of the five categories to provide worthwhile data. Chi square statistics allow for a amount of categories to be dropped if they are insignificant. The organizations which replied that they employed between five hundred and five thousand were analyzed. Within these categories, the larger the organization, the larger the percentage of training, concerning the types of employees, the skills taught and the techniques used. There did appear, through these results, that there is a relationship between the size of the organization and the training occurring in that organization.
