The Impact of Manpower Training on Productivity in Nigerian Public Service.


This study examined “The impact of Manpower training on productivity in Public Service. (A case study of Nnewi North local government from 1999- 2007). It has been observed that with only manpower training and development, a relatively permanent change can be brought about in the behavior of the individual employee and subsequently in the organization.

Training often is considered for new employees only. This is a mistake because ongoing training for current employees helps them adjust to rapidly changing job requirements. However, this work examines whether the training organized by the Nnewi North local government has improved their productivity.

It further investigates how successful or unsuccessful training organized by the authority has been. The major findings of this study were that workers were not well integrated after training. Secondly,  that workers experience “job dissatisfaction” because of inadequate training given to them by Nnewi North local government authority.

The researcher however recommended that the activities of those who were in charge of staff training should be monitored and not left in the hands of politicians. Also, that returnee staff from training should be well integrated to the post in which the training undertaken applies.


Background Of Study

The Nigerian Public Service was created by the British colonial administration as an executive agency of government. An obedient instrument of the governing authorities and on the other hand, an interpreter and implementer of the policies and programs, routine maintenance of law and order.

An operation of socio-economic service meant apparently for the benefit of Britain and the British administration. (Onah (2010), as cited in (Onah and Oguonu 2010). Today, the public service still remains an executive agency of government that earned public confidence and was largely perceived as the protector of public interest.

Since the return of democratic rule in 1999, there have been complaints about the poor service delivery of the public service in Nigeria. According to Onah (2010) as cited in Onah and Oguonu (2010)poor service delivery made the former Head of state, President Olusegun Obasanjo to introduce many reforms including SERVICOM to increase and ensure productivity in the public service.
