The statistical techniques used for data analysis were descriptive statistics, correlation, and regression analysis. All analysis was done using the statistical package for social science (SPSS) software version 25. Findings showed that employee training(ß = 0.515, P<0.05), employee education(ß = 0.204, P<0.05) and employee career development (ß = 0.244, P<0.05), have positive effect on organizational productivity. Findings showed that 52% of the change in organizational productivity was brought about by the dimensions of human resource development. The study concluded that human resource development has a significant positive effect on organizational productivity in the banking industry.
