Human resources management at least in a
primitive form has existed since the down of group of effort certain human
resources functions even though informal in nature were performed whenever
people come together for a common purpose.
contemporary area of human management began in the late 1920s, it was
characterized by an increase concern for human element in management.
the course of this century, however, the process of managing people have
becomes more formalized and specialized and a growing body of knowledge has
been accumulated by practitioners and scholars in an organization “people”
(Workers are critical factors in its well-being. Since every organization is build up by
people, hiring and maintaining good and qualified people critical to the
effectiveness or success of organization. For the fact that every organization
is human-oriented, a factor without which the organization is reduced to
nothing, the process of acquiring human services, developing skills, motivating
them and ensuring their loyalty in the
organization are vital instrument for achieving organizational objectives be it
public or private sector.
resources is simply defined as the supply of required staff of people with
various qualitative skills which when applied, organizational or institutional
objectives will be achieved. The globalization process of today dictates a need
for continues improvement in productivity and quality necessary for an
effective use of new technologies. An
organization that would line to survive these challenges of the present and
future time must anticipate its system review and change. Today things are
changing very fast. The world has become so much unpredictable and uncertain
especially in area of rapid and radical technological development, which focus
more on computerization.
goal could only be a achieved by organization engaging in proper and efficient
utilization of its human resource elements. Organizational survival strategies
must be based on a continuous assessment of the human resource performance in
all aspect of its operations and a continuous pursuit of ways that can best
make the organization to cope into the possible challenges within and outside.
This led to this research and project work “Design and implementation of a
computer based human resources management information system” using Nigerian
telecommunication Plc Enugu as a case study to stream lime the conduct of
personnel operation with the global demand of the present technological development.
In the course of the work (NITEL) the computer is used to compute employee’s
salaries, date of requirement of employees, checking when employee is due for
promotion, know the ghost workers. Employee’s appointment will be properly kept
and reviewed, make information retrieval and storage easy and simply to
generate, helps to make more reports available to the management and other
departments and better handling of storage and retrieval of personnel data and
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
non-challant attitude of management is concerning the welfare of workers. The
wastage on data processing, storage and retrieval of information, poor data and
information flow within the organization, workers-management relation is
nothing to write home about.
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The effectiveness of an organization, firm
or system is determined by its ability to allow certain goals maintain itself
internally and adopt to its environment. The main of the project is to improve
information and data flow within NITEL’S personnel department using a more
feasible alternative that will eliminate some of the problem of the existing
personnel system. The set objectives of the project can be summarized as
(1) Improving data and information flow within
the present system.
improve worker management relationship
(3) To reduce unnecessary time wastage on data
processing, storage and retrieval of information
(4) To help in improving workers welfare through
accelerated compensation reward practices and appraisal practices, which will,
in turn result in improved productivity.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PROJECT
The back drops of
personnel and manpower resource management is obsolesce. It is now a common
place. In the face of rapid technological changes, the need to develop a
computer model of a human activity arises to help overcome the lags and lapse
in human resource management. The project signifies a design of a best feasible
alternative solution, which is a computer model of “Human Resource Management
Information System” which will go a long way to eliminate the existing problems
that will be identified in the present manual method of data processing. The
new model will make use of software that will be designed for use in a computer
as a means of performing and controlling operations of the new model.
SCOPE OF THE STUDY
project will cover only the area of Human Resource Management of Nigerian
Telecommunication Plc, Enugu. After the analysis of the procedure in the
present system, some areas need improvement while some demand conversion that
will be best handled by a computer method. The areas of the automation are
areas of personnel data control, salary and promotion appraisal and transfers.
