RECRUITMENT, SELECTION AND PLACEMENT IN PUBLIC SECTOR ESTABLISHMENTS IN NIGERIA: A STUDY OF THE FEDERAL POLYTECHNIC, IDAH

ABSTRACT

The research was necessitated by the need to examine the challenges of staff recruitment, selection and placement in Public sector establishments in Nigeria. Based on this, the researcher went into investigation with a view to discovering the effects of political and sociological factors on recruitment; their effects on effective service delivery; and to determine the remedial measures to ensure effective and efficient service delivery in the Institutions of higher learning. Three hypotheses were formulated to guide the study from which eleven questions were drawn up and they formed the questionnaire administered to solicit information from respondents. The Data collected were analysed and from the analyses, it was revealed that political and interpersonal connections, Godfatherism and nepotism are the major criteria for recruitment and placement in Federal Polytechnic, Idah. We noted too that the institution does not advertise vacancies neither does it engage in Manpower planning. It was also found that political and interpersonal connections have resulted to general indiscipline, strained relationship between superior and subordinate officers and declining productivity in the institution. In order to ensure efficient and effective staff recruitment selection and placement in the institution, it is recommended, among others that, due process and competitive examination and interview be put in place for prospective employees; the institution should engage in manpower planning; and in order for employees to be dedicated, disciplinary procedures as spelt out in the Civil Service Rules should be properly implemented. Finally, there should be transparent management which ensures standardization in Policy implementation.
