Abstract

The paper examined Human Resource Management for Efficiency and
Productivity: An Expository Approach. Maintaining an efficient and productive workforce requires more than just pay, benefits, and safe working conditions. Employees need to be motivated and satisfied with their jobs. Personal and job-related problems may lead to the need for counselling or discipline. Thus, the objectives of this paper are to examine the ways human resource management can manage the workforce diversity for efficiency and productivity in an organization. To find out the ethical pre-requisite that stimulates efficiency and (labour) productivity in an organization. The human resource theoretical approach was used. Data were collected from secondary sources only while historical and exploratory research models based on content analysis were employed for the analysis. The paper found out that inadequate managerial skills required to manage workforce diversity
are lacking in some organizations. Secondly ethical values necessary to boost workers morale are grossly ignored by some organizations. The paper, therefore recommends among others, that the purpose and objectives of human resource management should be carried out dispassionately by organizational management. Finally, it is also recommended that human
resource management should be ethically and socially responsive to the needs and challenges of society while minimizing the negative impact of such demands on the organization.
