1.1    Background of the Study

Personnel management was not considered as an important ingredient in organization because managers at the past did not consider human beings as essential factors in the achievement of principles of scientific management.

In scientific management, concern of managers were on how to enhance and improve production regardless of those who are involved in producing thereby considering human beings as more factors of production.

In the pre-industrial revolution, there was hardly a unit of personnel management or department. All personnel matters were handled in the office of the Chief Executive because of the telling of own point of view most chief executive assigned the duty of personnel management issues to their assistance.

However, with the development of human relation school of thought, the concern for human being in organization started being in recognition moreover, with the advent of industrial revolution and after the revolution, personnel management.

Today, personnel management has come to stay as an essential factor of the organization in view of the changes it was undergone, its contributions enhanced the growth and development of public organization are well pronounced.

However, let us examine some of the definition given by some of these authorities and relates it to the case under study.

According to Edwin Fillipo says “Personnel management is the procurement, development, compensation, integration, maintenance and separation of human resources to the end that individual, organizational and social objectives are accomplished.

D.C Ohadinma and Nkem Uwaoma (2002) therefore define personnel management as the directing, coordinating and controlling of all the activities responsible for supplying required human resources and optimizing the personnel management involved in supplying required human resources.

Secondly, personnel managers involving optimizing the performance of human resources while the activities involved in supplying human resources include manpower, planning and procurement, those involved in the optimizing of the performance of human resources including training and development appraisal and motivation.

Judging from the above definitions, it therefore follow that firms in communication industry like (MTN, GLO, CELTEL etc) as organization that provide following service above to the public can only make it possible through its human resources to ensure good and effective personnel management.

The neglect of this vital factor (human resources) could spell doom for it, its employees are the source of its strength they determine the success of the organization through the application of their creativity and intelligence from the foregoing, one will agree with me that personnel management is very crucial to communication industry inclusive and therefore, the highest premium should be placed on its personnels.
