Human Resource Development Practices In Mining Department Of Goldfields Ghana Limited – Tarkwa Mine

ABSTRACT

The study sought to examine the relationship between human resource development practices and employee performance in Goldfields Tarkwa Mining Department. A descriptive survey research design was used in the study and questionnaire was used to elicit information from the workers of Tarkwa Mining Department. The simple random sampling method was used to select the 200 respondents as the sample for the study. The data collected were analysed by the use of the Statistical Product and Service Solution (SPSS) version 16.0.

The finding of the study indicate that; first, though Goldfields Tarkwa Mining Department had well defined policies that guided its human resource development practices, some of the workers were not aware of such policies. Secondly, the Company conducted in service training programmes to improve upon the skills and knowledge of its workers. However, some of the workers felt the training programmes were helpful. Added to the problem of stress were lack of time, inconsistency between content taught and workers’ professional needs and lack of professionally trained instructs.

The main recommendations of the study include; the need for management to thoroughly discuss with workers the main policies and programmes of the company, the need to employ experts to teach and train workers, pay attractive allowances to workers and the need for workers to cooperate with management in resolving human resource development problems that will arise from training programmes.
