Presently business organization are played problems in spite of inceased learning in management theme. Many management experts are also at a loss to conceive the cause of these human resources management problems.

In this work the research will review the importance of human resources to the growth of any nations economy.

Human resources management according to Dressler (1973 – 125) can be defined as “procedure, activities or action directed towards finding the solution to the manpower problems of the organization”.

That is action which are placement recruitment selection and wages and salaries administration,. Industrial relations and joint consultaion, employee welfare, training development, motivation, employee appraisal and assessment and effective utilization of human resources of an organization.

According to Ubeku (1975:98) the major importance of the subject matter is the fact that is a basic function of management.  Unless it is effectively carried out by all members of line management. Technical  efficiency will be inadequate to achieve organizational success. Problem of human resource should not be though of as something separate from technical problem. Also human effort differs form other factors of production.  This is due to the fact that the employee has his own objectives which must be integrated and reconciled with those of management or the organization. In carrying out human  resources management practices both individuals and group relations are taken into account.

Majority of the people with particular reference to the elite will be wondering why there are problem of human resource management in the private and public sectors of Nigeria organizations. 

James (  1978:73) observed that the effective use of people is the key productivity.  Motivation of employees  in an organization is to get the best of their skill and abilities.

He further observed that although the task of motivating workers rested on the managements team as a whole.  Managers have more rules to play in other words the sort of continuous day to day coaching appraisal and encouragement that the employee will need will be more than over before managers have upper hands in motivating workers. When managers work together with their workers they will know and satisfy their problems for better result.

Any activity in the organization from the starting to the finishing stage depends on human resource or the staff strength. Therefore any organization aiming at achieving some of their goal must ensure not only constant and adequate supply of personnel but that they are adequately motivation.

From the above we can clearly understand that the goal and aspiration of the organization cannot be achieve only by providing and ensuring adequate supply of personnel. Some suggestions will also be made on how best to remedy the problems at state.
