Literature is abundant on the relationship between training and learning; learning and performance; training and performance, but there is little evidence for mediating of learnings on the relationship between training and performance for bank employees. Using regression analysis, the current study, based on a sample of 600 bank employees from India, studied the mediation of learning on the relationship between training and performance. The study found a high level of mediating effect of learning on performance. The relationship between learning and performance was found to be 61.7 percent which implied that performance resulted from learnings and more training bring about enhanced learning which shall translate into better performance. Another significant finding was that employees who were not promoted or working in the same position for a long time did not show an improvement in performance even with training. Therefore, periodic changes in designation (promotions) would make training more effective.
