1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Organizations are increasingly looking at human resources as a unique asset that can provide sustained competitive advantage. The changes in the business environment with increasing globalization, changing demographics of the workforce, increased focus profitability through growth, technological changes, intellectual capital and the never-ending changes that organizations are undergoing, have led to increased importance of managing human resources. Devanna, Fombrun and Tichy 1981; Wright (1998).
The impact of human resources management in an organization’s strategic management planning is extremely important in helping firm to find ways to compete effectively in the domestic and foreign market.
However to improve thequality and productivity in organizations most executive employs human resources management such as employees motivation programs, employees training and education, and changing the organization’s culture, including other resources in order to achieve results.
According to Jack Pitz-enz (2000:7) “people are the only element with the inherent power to generate value”. All other components offer only inert potentials. By their nature, they add nothing, and they cannot add anything until some human beings be it the lowest – level laborers, the most ingenious professional or the loftiest executive leverage that potential by putting it into action.
The increasing significant role of human resource management in achieving objectives is evident in the transformation functions. It has evolved from concentration on employee welfare to one of managing people in a way so as to obtain the best and highest productivity possible from the employee, through methods that provide the employees with both intrinsic and extrinsic reward.
Human Resources Management is the strategies and coherent approach to the management of an organization’s most valued assets; the people working there who individually and collectively contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the business. The term “Human Resources Management” has largely replaced the term “Personnel Management” as a description of the processes involved in managing people in organizations. In simple words, Human Resources Management means employing people, developing their capabilities, utilizing, maintaining and compensating their services in tune with the job and organizational requirements.
According to Lake (1990), Human Resources Management system can be the source of organizational capabilities that allows firms to learn and capitalize on new opportunities. The main characteristics of Human Resources Management approach is that it meets the needs for a strategic approach to Human Resources Management which achieves “fit” between the business and the human resources strategy.
Human Resources is viewed as a source of competitive advantage in line with the concept of resource – based strategy; it is a comprehensive and coherent approach to the provision of mutually supporting employment policies and practices, and it is adopted through the development of integrated Human Resources policies and practices, Armstrong (2001). Some people believe that there are universal principles, practices and general know-how on which efficient and effective Human Resources Management is based. Adler and Ghader (1990) argued that companies handle Human Resources Management issues as if they were operating exclusively in domestic markets. The early advocates of Human Resources Management believed that organization should move away from the bureaucracy of personnel management to the apparent flexibility and responsiveness of Human Resources Management, Hope Hailey et al (1998). The overall purpose of Human Resources Management is to ensure that the organization is able to achieve its objectives in certain areas like recruitment and development, relationships, valuing employees etc. This practice is no longer new in Nigerian organizations, but the problem is that most organizations are yet to fully apply or implement this.
The link between Human Resources Management (HRM) and business performance is high on the corporate agenda at present. Both organizations and academics are striving to prove that human resources management has a positive impact on bottom-line productivity. Organizations are focusing on the role of resources in achieving competitive advantage and improving organizational performance. Although human resources practice and organizational performance have widely been studied, their distinctive relationship has received limited empirical scrutiny, especially in multinational companies in developing countries.
It is against this background that this study seeks to evaluate critically the impact of Human Resources Management on organizational performance in Nigeria, using Nigerian Breweries Plc 9th Mile Corner Enugu, and Emenite Ltd Enugu as a research case study.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Most organizations in recent times now face challenges of human resources management with the result that their human resources is ineffectively and inefficiently managed.
This inadequacy in human resource management could be attributed but not limited to the following problems;
(1) Organizations specifically, face the problem of poor human resource planning, which is reflected by poor recruitment, selection and placement policies. This has resulted in lower productivity levels of complaints from customers with subsequently lower revenues, higher cost, higher staff turnover, poor industrial relations. Consequently, the uncompetitive position of the organizational goals and objective.
(2) There is a problem of ineffective staff training and development programmes consequently leading to idleness of member, loose of creativity, poor self concept among employees, low competency among employees and generally low employee productivity.
(3) The motivation and compensation policies are very low and ineffective sometimes in organizations consequently leading to lack of commitment and motivation among employees, lack of interest, low expectation among employees.
(4) Management/employee relationship is often not palatable because of poor communication system and leadership style resulting in lower satisfaction, low morale, disloyalty, emotional immaturity, high resistant behaviour and antagonistic attitude among employees which has a negative effect on the general performance of the firm.
(5) There are assured social security plans for employees consequently leading to low level of trust and confidence, feeling of insecurity, low quality of life, workers inefficiency and low level of trust and confidence among workers. Generally resulting to low productivity.
These entire problems however, compelled the researcher to investigate the phenomenon.
