TOPIC : EXPLORING PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT AS A ROUTE TO ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
AND EFFECTIVENESS (A CASE STUDY OF CADBURY NIGERIA PLC.)
OF THE STUDY
Personnel Management is the process that helps organisations
to provide adequate human resources to achieve their
current and future organisational objectives. Personnel
Management is the most strategic of all human resource
management functions. Personnel Management process defines
the sources, number and types of manpower needed to
meet future work requirements Drucker, (1975). Predetermined
strategies to attract and retain the best people are
also laid down. Strategic development and utilization
of employees’ capabilities, which yield best benefits
to the company, are designed in the process.
Management which simply refers to the act of getting
things done through others requires an analytical process
involving various aspects Akpala, (1991). In order to
produce quality products and to offer best services,
various planning exercises such as determination of
desired goals, assessment of the future in relation
to the environmental changes, selection of activities,
preparation of written plan document, etc. will have
to be done, which will give rise to mobilisation of
human resources and as such the need for personnel management.
The result of a good personnel management is marvelous.
This will be reflected in higher turnover, lower absenteeism,
fewer breakdowns, lower migration and more than anything
else, higher quality of work.

workforce i.e the staffs, they are the ones that supply
the organization with work, talent, drive, creativity

personnel in a Nigerian organization.
