CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION

1.1       BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

The concept Human resource management (HRM) has its roots in non-unionized US with comparatively sophisticated employment practices (Purcell &Ahlstrand, 1994).Human resources of a company are said to be one of the important capital playing such an important role in the operation of an organization. Pfeffer, (1994) argued that human capital has long been held to be a critical resource in most firms. Companies are now trying to acid value with their human resources and human resource (HR) department has been set up in order to manage their human capital, whereas organization in last decade, managed their human capital through personnel department which is only a small division of the company.

Nigerian organizations have started realizing the importance of HRM. Cheah (2003) stated that Nigerian managers realized that HRM had to be effective to bring about organizational stability and harmony. The diversity of the composition of the modern workforce in Nigeria requires more appropriate and imaginative HRM solutions, as several scholars have noted that managing people is more difficult than managing technology and capital (Barney, 1991; Lado, & Wilson, 1994). Principally, in a country like Nigeria which is a multi-cultural country, failure in managing human capital and maintaining the harmony within an organization will create fatal problems to the organizations performance (outcome, productivity and profitability) (Lau & Ngo, 2004). A number of researchers have reported that HR practices are positively linked with organizational and employee performance, but little evidence is available about HRM and employee performance from developing countries like Nigeria.

 

1.2     STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The distinctive features of HRM ‘human resources management’ as its assumption that improved performance is achieved through the people in the organizations.

HRM is the “black box” of the Nigeria breweries Kaduna plc., which is the case study of this research work.

One of the major problem confronting management in any organization is most effective way of matching people with jobs or different areas of department which they are specialize in an organization so as to make sure their performance will yield to the goals of the organization in an effective and efficient manner. 

                                                                                  

1.3       RESEARCH QUESTION

1.                 Does human resource management have any impact on         organizational performance?

2.                 How effective is the management of human resources in determining           organizational performance?
