CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0    Background of the Study

Organization is a group of people with different roles that are co-ordinate to achieve its overall goal and objectives. Organization try to seek for people whose skills, talents, experiences and abilities meet their requirement in terms of the job. However, this can only by ensured through recruitment exercise selection and placement policies. The recruitments, selection and placement policies must be objective. Objectivity is a good issue but is hardly achieved in the ordinary course of discharging our daily duties because of so many factors ranging from nepotism, tribalism, favoritism etc.

The greatest asset to any organization is its human resources since it determine the output of the organization in relation to quality. Ideology success in any organization is determined by how well the human resource fits in their various positions. Organization is like a human being that has various parts that are interrelated and the mal functioning of one part affects the well being of the other parts. So, when the ineffectiveness of a policy on say recruitment is not corrected in good time, then the whole system will be rendered useless.

The some factor is also affecting the selection and placement policies of organization as the three concepts are well interrelated.
