Abstract:     
Based theoretically on the resource-based view of the firm (RBV), this study surveys human resource professionals employed in small, medium, and large firms regarding the impact of training on various measures of the firm’s competitiveness. Based on the analysis of data obtained from the online survey of 111 human resource professionals, the majority of the participants rate the impact of training on various measures of their firms’ competitiveness moderate, high, or very high. The human resource professionals surveyed evaluate the impact of training on various measures of their firms’ competitiveness based on their communication with colleagues and management team.
