HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT IN NIGERIA: A STAFF TRAINING CASE STUDY
1.1 INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY
The total utilization of scarce resources such as man, machine, money, materials, and so on in order to achieve pre-determined organizational objectives is the focus of resource management. A manager is involved in the basic function of planning; directing, organizing, and controlling of all the resources mentioned above, with man being the most important because he is required to activate the other resources and thus the main instrument for the achievement of the organization’s objectives.
Thus, all activities of any enterprise or country are initiated and determined by the people who comprise that institution. Plants, offices, computers, automated equipment, and all other resources that a country employs are unproductive unless human effort and direction are applied.
In other words, all other resources in Edo State are passive and must be used by humans in order to be productive. Based on the foregoing, this topic is devoted to human resource management. Human resource management, according to Stoner and Freeman (1992), is the management function that deals with the recruitment, placement, training, and development of organizational members.
Human resource management (HRM) is a function of the staff. Human resource managers provide advice to managers throughout the organization. Furthermore, the state, society, and country, as well as the company in Edo State, may require more or fewer employees and managers at times. The HRM process is an ongoing procedure that attempts to keep the organization supplied with the right people in Edo State positions when they are needed.
According to Yusuf et al. (1991), some administrators of works and other related institutions of work combined with many resources to accomplish organizational goals, including people to carry out work activities, buildings to house organizational operations, equipment to facilitate good productive acts, and financial resources to fund the state and the country at large. That is why Edo State has established a staff training center.
The researcher chose the topic “Human resource management” in order to identify and highlight the constraints that have impeded or hindered the achievement of productive human resources in Edo State, as well as what the future holds (solutions to the problems identified) in store for Edo States. The people of Edo State have not reaped any significant benefits from human resource management, which has hampered the state’s economic development.
