1.1 Background Of The Study

The attainment of objective and goal of any organization depends upon the development and utilization of people in it. The efficiency of an organization whether private or public depends to a large extent on how effectively human resource is being utilized. This is why it is important that organization must seek and obtain the willing cooperation of the people it has to work with, so as to attain its desired objective. Human resources managers must work, employ and develop programmes and policies that will enable them to obtain the best results from the employees. Organizations are being forced to operate in an increasingly competitive environment and this places emphasis on the role of management in developing human resource in order to meet its objective in the search for organizational effectiveness.

There is an increasing range of specialized skills to help line managers whether in business public administration or other organization while struggling to achieve objectives of an organization there are a number of tools which can help managers in the execution of work and activities which have to be undertaken in forecasting, planning, organizing and controlling many of these tools that will help to solve the problems affecting human resources development.

However, there are problem affecting human resources development in Enugu North Local Government Area of Enugu State. These problems discourages an employee from contributing his maximum human potentials which are necessary to make for higher productivity, profitability and growth.

Human resources development is the part of human resources management that socially deals with training and development of employees. Training is used to denote the teaching of technical skills to non-managerial personnel. While development on the other hand is concerned with the improvement given to the technical conceptual and human relation skill of managers (Ojemba Gabriel Agbo 2010: 124). Carrying out/implementing these two concept above is not an easy task since in public sector like the Enugu North local Government, training and development is regarded as a venture that can only be carried out when enough fund is available and hence training and development is relegated to the background. Brim-Donaha (1981: 365) agrees with this when he lamented, that many organizations see human resources development as a will to be enjoyed in gold times and when money is more readily available but to be out when money supplies dwindle.

The filed of management posses many problems and these problems affect human resources development. The problem to be discussed in this research includes inadequate selection, recruitment placement training, motivation, industrial relation communication and other environmental factors that affect human resources development in the six department of Enugu North Local Government area of Enugu State, namely; works, personnel, health, welfare, accounts and finance departments.
