There seem to be dearth of literature on the benefits of redeployment of staff in public organizations. Thus many organizations and their workers are shy on redeployments which are suppose to be done when necessary in order to maximize related benefits from the employees as well as the employers. This practice has the likelihood of affecting the growth of organizations and their workers in many negative ways. The aim of this study is therefore to examine the possible benefits realizable through staff redeployment or rotation. In addition the study will highlight the need for the right approach and response in the redeployment exercise thus serving as innovative solution to organizational inefficiency. The study was based on General system theory of Ludwig. It employed a stratified random sampling of senior and junior non-teaching staff as well as primary and secondary materials as sources of data collection while analysis is descriptive. The findings show that human capitals are strategically formed at AIFCE, Owerri. Redeployments are done but not regularly and the extent to which redeployments exercise is being carried out is not sufficient enough to achieve the desired goal of staff redeployments. The study also shows that redeployment benefits are enormous that if organizations and employees are well sensitized and redeployments strategically and routinely done, will not regret redeploying or being redeployed.
