Abstract: Based on the idea that the most valuable resource of an organisation is the human resource, our research objective is related to identifying the perception of the importance of staff training for company development. The analysis was realised based on a survey completed by 122 persons living in Timisoara, Romania. Almost all respondents perceive employee training and development courses and specializations as important and very important for the development of the company. This general opinion reveals the importance of training activities for both, employers and employees. Approximately 60% of the cases related to the training sessions were fully paid by companies, while 14% of them were fully covered by the beneficiary. In addition, the survey statistics proved that companies contribute financially for executive and younger employees to a much greater extent than to the elderly ones.In general, the employees were satisfied by the overall quality of the courses attended, confirming their positive influence on their personal and professional development.
