HUMAN RESOURCE PLANNING AND IMPROVED PRODUCTIVITY IN NIGERIAN PUBLIC ORGANISATION
The necessity of human resource in any organization whether public or private has long been identified as an instrument for goal attainment. Hence, human resource planning is pivotal to the productivity of any organisation. Productivity has suffered serious setback in Nigeria despite our enormous human resource deposits. It suggests that we lack well planned human resources. This development has made human resource planning to stand out as a solution for improved employee productivity in Nigerian public organisations.The broad objective of this paper is to interogate the impact of human resource planning on improved productivity in Nigerian public organisation. With the aid of human capital theory, we observed that there is a nexus between human resource planning and improved productivity in public organization. We recommend among others that chief executives should pro-actively engage in human resource planning, recognize employee’s talents through reward systems, teamwork and excellent interpersonal relationship to enhance high productivity in public organizations.
