1.1      Background of Study

Human resources management according to Dressier (1973 – 125) can be defined as “procedure, activities or action directed towards fining the solution to the manpower problems of the organization”. That is action which are placement recruitment selection and wages and salaries administration,. Industrial relations and joint consultation, employee welfare, training and development, motivation, employee appraisal and assessment and effective utilization of human resources of an organization.

Human resource management is fraught with difficulties in today’s fast-paced commercial world. Competing for and keeping the best people is a constant struggle. Companies have a hard time attracting and retaining top talent in today’s increasingly competitive job market for qualified professionals.

Likewise, it can be difficult to create an environment where everyone feels welcome and valued. Human resource managers have a greater responsibility as their firms grow increasingly multicultural and multinational. This may be done by the implementation of policies that welcome all, the encouragement of a diverse applicant pool, and the provision of cultural competency instruction.

Human resource managers also have to deal with the difficulty of keeping up with changing technology landscapes. Human resources procedures are becoming computerised as a result of the proliferation of automation and AI. To efficiently manage HR systems and procedures, HR professionals must acquire new knowledge and keep up with technological developments.

According to Ubeku (1975:98) the major importance of the subject matter is the fact that is a basic function of management. Unless it is effectively carried out by all members of line management. Technical  efficiency will be inadequate to achieve organizational success. Problem of human resource should not be though of as something separate from technical problem. Also human effort differs form other factors of production.  This is due to the fact that the employee has his own objectives which must be integrated and reconciled with those of management or the organization in carrying out human resources management practices both individuals and group relations are taken into account.

In addition, maintaining staff interest and enthusiasm is a constant problem for human resource managers. It’s important for productivity and staff retention to keep workers enthusiastic and interested in their work. Managers of human resources must deploy tactics like performance evaluation and reward programmes as well as training and advancement opportunities to maintain employee engagement.

1.2 Statement of the Problem

Human resource managers have a major obstacle in maintaining legal compliance with employee protections. Compliance with labour rules, such as minimum wage, working hours, and anti-discrimination statutes, requires human resource managers to keep abreast of the ever-evolving legal environment.

HRM in the modern corporate world is fraught with difficulties. Attracting and maintaining top talent, managing diversity and inclusion, keeping up with technology changes, keeping employees engaged and motivated, and adhering to labour rules are all difficulties that businesses face today. Human resource managers must be proactive, flexible, and strategic in order to overcome these problems.

It is pertinent to note that adequate emphasis have not been laid by parastatals in terms of promoting a favourable ground for human resources managers. Business organization also exists to render some useful services to humanity. Regrettably the achievement of these objective is either blocked or delayed because of blatant mismanagement and poor harnessing of the organizations personnel resource.

  1. Poor communication flow between the management and the workers.
  2. Undue punishment to some staff at the lower level in the hierarchical structure.
  3. Lack of improvement in recruitment of workers into key positions in various offices of the company.
  4. Poor motivation to workers and unavailability of incentives.
  5. Low level of manpower for the job.
  6. Irregular of half hazard promotions to some worker
  7. Unnecessary harassment to workers especially the junior ones. Based on these things, the researcher sort ways reversing them.

More so, the researcher simultaneously engaged in this study with other academic work. As a result, the amount of time spent on research will be reduced.
