1.1 Background of the study
management of people within the organisation has become an increasingly
recognized important focus for researchers and practitioner over the past 20
years. Organisations are becoming more aware of important role human resource
play in the success of their organisations to achieve financial performance. As
a result, organisations are becoming more employee-centric by focusing on
enhancing employees’ engagement and organisational commitment
It is important for organisation to adopt human resources management (HRM) system that optimizes workforce as it enables organisation to achieve competitive advantage in today’s global market economy that provides wider access to technology, finance and other resources. Pfeffer (1994) stated that firms have increasingly recognized the potential for their peopleto be a source of competitive advantage. Creating competitive advantage through people requires careful attention to the practices that best leverage these assets. According to Nishii, (2008) scholars generally agree that appropriately designed, Human resources management practices can enhance organizational performance. Related theories suggesting and supporting assumption holds that the practices of Human Resources Management influences employees attitudes and behaviours.
Human Resource Management is an invisible asset in an organisation. It creates value when embedded in the operational system that enhances organisational performance and ability to deal with turbulent environment. Effective HRM assists in developing human resources into high quality and efficient workforce thus enabling the organisation to obtain a competitive advantage through their people. In contrast, inefficient workforce can increase labour cost and decrease organisation productivity. However, in order to remain competitive, grow and diversify, an organisation must ensure that its employees are qualified, placed in appropriate position, properly trained, managed effectively and committed to the firm’s success. The goal of HRM is to maximize employees contribution in order to achieve optimal productivity and effectiveness while simultaneously attaining individual objective (such as having a challenging job) and obtaining recognition) and societal objectives (such as legal compliance and demonstrating social responsibility).
Human resource dimensions or practices (training, recruitment, reward system performance appraisal etc) have considerable impact on the performance of organizations and these contribute to the affirmative link between human resource management and organizational performance (Osman, 2012).
Training is a flexible way to develop an employee as it consists of both formal and informal ways to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of employees (Ellstrom, 2011). Job security increases employees’ honesty, keeps employees committed to the organization and provides security to valuable information as well (Raji and Jackson, 2011). Reward system is imposed on organization to evaluate reward and organization reward employees on the basis to get value by elaborating what they have spent and what they have got (Armstrong, 2011). Employee performance can be evaluated by the evaluation of task and reward system. Employee performance is one that is affected by the knowledge transfer that helps employee to develop their understanding of networking as well as focusing on the organizational performance.
Organizational performance is related to organizational justice which allows employees to get committed to task assigned to him or her. HRM dimensions greatly influences the employees attitude which in turn affects employees’ performance. If HRM system works effectively, then increase in the organizational performance will be seen (Snape and Redman, 2010). Competitive advantage is viewed as a source of competitive advantage is a must for any organization and employees are always viewed as source of competitive advantage for any organization (Barney, 1991; Pfeffer, 1994). So, human resource management must be made in such a way that can utilize employees in the best possible way to increase performance of organizations.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
problem is an intellectual stimulus calling for an answer in the form of
scientific inquiry.From experience over the years, with the role of human
resource management in the achievement of organizational goal in Nigeria
compared to other organizations of the world. It has been observed that human
resource management in Nigeria have not performed well to support the
efficiency and growth of the nation.Any management that is keen on training its
personnel is usually faced with the problem of cost/benefit analysis. It is
very easy to work cost but it is difficult to put value on the asset. It is
therefore pertinent to list the problems associated with training human
resource in the organization.
It has been observed that the problem facing business and increasingly number of workers are being faced with poor condition of service including remuneration. Furthermore, the foreign exchange problem has added a new dimension to the range of problem facing business organization. The overall effect of the problem is that most business organization can no longer afford to offer the employees good remuneration and adequate compensation for their labour. This is a situation that brought about ineffectiveness of human resource in the achievement of organizational goals.
Presently, Nigeria economy is experiencing some economic difficulties which have resulted in retirements, retrenchments, lay-offs, mergers and acquisitions and dismissal of employees.
Furthermore, prominent among the reasons why organizations perform poorly in most organization in Nigeria is the problem of fund. Thus, this is the reason for the introduction of two schemes and programmes by the federal Government through the CBN which are geared towards improving the accessibility and availability of credit to the companies in order to make them more vibrant. Even the funds cannot manage themselves without the human resource.
At this point, the problem this study seeks to address is to find out the impact of HRM and how it has facilitated the growth and achievement of organizational goals.
1.3 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
objectives are statements that the research project will attempt to achieve.

2. What role does reward system play on job satisfaction?
3. Is there any association between training and development on profitability?
4. What is the relationship between performance appraisal and employee’s productivity
1.5 RESEARCH HYPOTHESIS
hypothesis is a formal statement that presents the expected relationship
between an independent and dependent variable (Creswell 2006).
From the research questions above, this study will be anchored on the following hypothesis
Ho1: Recruitment and selection has no significant association on employee’s turnover.
Ho2: Reward system
negatively influences Job satisfaction
Ho3: Training and development does not affect profitability
Ho4: Performance appraisal cannot directly determine employee’s productivity.
1.6 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
study is carried out within Asaba metropolis, Oshimili South Local Government
Area of Delta State, Nigeria. The study focuses on the telecommunication
industry in Nigeria generally but only covers Airtel Nigeria Plc.
