1.1 Background of the study
All organizations are concerned with what should be done to achieve high level of productivity through staff motivation using the right kind of incentive. Consequently the effect of financial and non financial incentive becomes a burning issue in human resource management.
As such a lot of theoretical concept, principles and techniques of management have evolved in response to these challenges/ but most scholars suggest that more conceptual and empirical work is required to show the link between financial and non financial incentive and staff productivity is still vague but some studies have documented in their work that financial incentive is readily perceived as having a high instrumental value that makes putting forth extra effort worthwhile and its has a long term effect in terms of labour turnover rate because of comparative value for alternative employment while non financial incentive has less initial impact as the pragmatics of financial gain, they seem to have a steady, sustainable impact.
Despite the growing body of literature and empirical study on the effect of financial and non financial incentive on workers productivity, the subject matter still remains complex. Hence, the need to undertake a survey on the effect of financial and non financial incentives on staff productivity in Nigeria Postal Services Kaduna.

For the fact that only NIPOST was used as the sole area of study it is no certain if the same result would be obtained in other organization.
Respondent bias and non challant attitude also constitute a greater limitation to this research.
For the fact that questionnaire constitute the only instrument use to collect data and survey research design the sole design used for the study. It is not certain if the same result will be used if other type of design as well as instrument were used. All these factor constitute a greater limitation to the research.
