Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

Chapter two deals extensively with Literature Review in order to see the salient objectives of this study are met and its contribution to knowledge, in this chapter, opinions and views of powerful writers/ experts on the topic were used to shed more light on our points

Chapter three deals with research methodology, Sources of data collection, study area and sampling procedure and mathematical tools to be used which are mainly tables, simple percentage and chi- square.
Chi- Square was used to test the hypothesis formulated.

Chapter four covers presentation, analysis and interpretation of data gathered from the field via question naira. Interpretation of the data becomes necessary and was carried out with a view to bringing out the result of our findings.

5.3 Conclusion

Based on the data collected from the field survey and various literature reviews on the project topic, it is highly significant to draw conclusion based on the findings. The average success and failure of any organisation depends mostly on the effectiveness’ and of bankers and accountant.

It has been established that most bankers lack basic training, the best motivational technique therefore is for the management and government to direct their resources and time towards.

Human capital Development in the Banking industry and its effect on profitability is a knowledge and personality attributes embodied in the ability to perform labour so as to produce economic value in the banking industry.

5.4 Recommendations

Based on the result of our findings, the following recommendations are made by the researcher;

  1. Workers in the organization irrespective of their status are better motivated by training and development activities. Remuneration packages should be attractive to further motivate the staff for optimum performance.
  2. The researcher appreciates the management commitment to manpower training and development is a candid opinion that training activities should cost across all the sections that make up the organization selection for training should be based purely on merit and not through favouritism.
  3. The researcher suggests that a correspondents training schedule should be introduced to compliment the existing one.
  4. The importance of identifying both organizational and individual training needs for an effective and result- oriented training programme cannot be over- emphasized. The organization should device a better means of identifying and training needs for her Workers. There should be a constant communication between the training officials and human capital management department.

5.5 Limitations of the Study

The following are the limitations of this study:

  1. Financial problem; in carrying out this research project, the researchers were faced with a lot of financial obstacles. The problem across as a result of economic recession prevailing at the time of conducting the research and this has made the researchers to limit the research to the little available instrument/data used in carrying out the research.
  2. Attitude of the staff of the organization towards the researcher. Most of the people and organization consulted to render useful information for the consulted to render useful information for the successful implementation of the research refused to supply reliable information and this made the situation worse for the researcher. Some of the management staff interviewed about the subject matter initially refused to give out information. They thought the information could of the information should leak out to their competitors.
  3. Time factor; It is a time- consuming work which needs to be given much time because it involves migrating to get proper and accurate information for the research project. The time set for the submission of the project is rather short, more so, other academic activities were still to be taken care of.
  4. Data Constraint; Unlike developed countries that maintain reliable data bank, Nigeria lacks data bank where credible and could be sourced for meaningful research. In other words, there are no robust data banks where reliable data can be sought.
  5. Furthermore, most of the textbooks in our polytechnic library are not up-to-data this has necessitated souring for data not only from some other tertiary institutions

Suggestions for Further Study

Nobody can stop anybody from researching further into a particular topic. To this end the door is free to further researchers to research into area(s) I did not cover adequately because of time and financial constraints. Surprisingly, result from the exercise maybe beneficial not only to the bank but also to the entire economy generally
Furthermore, the result from the exercise could add more to the literature on the topic.
