Recently managers in organization began to realize the importance’s of human elements in the achievement of set goals and objectives. Rather, two much emphasis and attention were focused on the material resources (both Agricultural and Mineral Endowments) while less attention are paid on the workforce (human resources workers).


However, there is swift shift in attention from material resources to human resources among few managers. Although, of all resources available to human an organization, people remain the most important, most valuable yet most complicated, least understood and most difficult to predict.


Therefore “personal management” is primarily concerned with the study of the human resources available to an organization i.e. how to get the right people, at the right time and at an economic price to carry out some functions expected of them.


Moreover, we can define personnel management as the management of people (human resources) at work.


We can also define it as “the recognition of the importance of an organization work place as vital human resources contributing to the goals of the organization and the utilization of several activities and function to ensure that they (human resources are used effectively and fairly for the benefit of the individual organization and society.


It is eth employees who determine what to produce (goods and services), the quantity that may be required by the users, what mix of the different varieties of raw materials needed, when to produce, where to sell and at what price.


However, modern personnel management performs other roles in the industry, which include motivation and organizational development.

Furthermore, personnel manager also deals with the human aspect of management. No study of management is complete without taking human behavior and attitudes into considerations. It is right said that “nothing is superior to man” not even the machine, computer robot or any other valuable.


Personnel manager who is the head of the personnel department is fully responsible for maintain and improving the human relationship between management and personnel (employees). Also, during a period of time an organization losses some off it employee through death, retirement, dismissal and other causes. These people have to replace. Besides as an organization grows it required more employees.

Therefore, the objective of personnel management includes

  1. To attract and secure appropriate people capable of performing effectively the organization’s specific task.
  2. To utilize the human resources effectively and efficiently.

iii.To generate maximum individual development of the people within the organization.

The personnel department, headed by the personnel manager should be able to obtain capable Again, personnel management in real term involves planning at the early stage, control, supervisor undertaking risk and handling uncertainty. Hence, a manager assemble the best work team which is he can obtain and provides supportive motivation environment to guide that team to accomplish agreed upon objectives. These objectives may include manufacturing or production of certain product by sole proprietor or groups of people or even public sector.

In a very small organization like private sector line management does the hiring’s then training where possible, the discipline and the firing. It also established the rates of pay. At times, as a result of pressing for more production and sales, the sole proprietor does not well developed a well rounded comprehensive personnel programme.

The situation in a large organization is not the same a large organization like public corporation is established and controlled by the government through the board of directors of governing council. Such organization is very large and complex in nature. They are specifically created to provide certain essential services which are not expected to be discharge on a commercial basis either because of huge capital involved in such activities or because of political and social reason.

It is not possible as it could be in a very small company for a single man and his live manager in very large organization to handle adequately the many complex personnel management problem without specialized knowledge and help. In essence, there is a need for the establishment of personnel department headed by personnel manager.

Personnel management also takes control over financial issues or the identification of new technique developments. Whether an organization loose or gain in the market depend to a large extent on the quality of its personnel.

Finally, an organization is held together, directed and made to function by managers and management, whether in business ventures, college or hospital or the country highway department whether as trainees or the big boss.
