5.1 Summary of findings
The marketing environment of today has exposed scholars, individuals and the general publics about the understanding of human relations simply given a brand name to mean employee relations in our society. It is imperative to note that the marketers understanding of the consumer need in the market and the satisfaction of such need at the same time could be regarded as the employee relation practice in such market.
According to OBODO (2001), employees are allowed free hands to operate in any organization without any interference or arbitany use of authority. They usually give their best co-operate existence and understanding should be the management’s watchword.
This employee relation refers to the way people behave or act toward each other in any situation in a business organization.
Taken a closely look at the definition of marketing given by the American institute of marketing when they defined marketing as a management process concerned with anticipating, identify and satisfaction of consumer need and want based on exchange function which gives profit to both the consumer and the organization through whom the satisfaction was derived. We will see that employee relations has two valuables that makes it possible:-
(i) LEADERSHIP: One of the factors in good employee relations is leadership which involves managers increasing productivity and profit by inspiring workers and ensuring adequate invectives for their effort and the establishment of understanding, goodwill between an organizations publics, policies and procedures of an individual ment to create public interest. UDEAGHA (1995).
(ii) BEHAVOUR: According to NOUGHTON ETAL (1998) understanding man and his behaviour is an important aspect of employee relations in any organization. Most of the problems we have today is as a result of human differences and characters in an office in all, it is important to make workers knows why they are engaged in one task or the other and also create an enabling environmental condition for all and Sunday in order to carry every body along.
1.1 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Employee Relation Practice in the Aviation Industry in Nigeria through the expected must effective channel of marketing a corperate services is the industry but because of the chocrimmaition of the senior staff and a feeling of being on top of the world has made it extremely difficult for some employees to coup with the demand of the day.

Due to the fact that most employees are afraid of another taken up their position they tend to hid things from their subordinates to be novis in the time.
Relationships with the poor people are always neglected by the rich. In which case employees cannot effectively relate with either their rich customers and or their follow staff that are richer than others.
The problem of more presentation and stealing attitude in collaboration with entrusted spirit we have for fellow, friends in our different endeavours has made it absolutely impossible for an effective public relation to exist between two persons how in Nigeria.
The practice of public relations in some industries have become a very big problem in the sense that most of the follows in such industries are not in talking tense with one another. In the actual sense, where two or more persons have relations practice would have been defeated in such area.
It is said that effectiveness of every communication is feedback, In other wards, where there is no respect in an office, the practice of public of relations in such area will not yield a reasonable fruit of moving the organization forward.
