INTRODUCTION

1.1 GENERAL BACKGROUND TO THE SUBJECT MATTER

            Public corporations are government owned institution established to engage in production of certain goods and services for socio-economic welfare of it’s citizens.  Such goods and services may be those, which the private sector may not provide adequately or may not provide at all for lack of incentive for maximum profit.

            The performance of some of the public corporations in terms of rendering or giving services to the public has been a matter of great concern to the country.

            The corporations have been performing below expectations of people, which do not justify the huge amount of money invested in them by the government.  What has been common in some public corporations is low productivity.  According to Mali Paul (1978, P.23), productivity is the measure of how well.

            Resources are brought together in organization as well being utilized for accomplishing a set of results.  Productivity is reaching the highest level of performance with the least expenditure of resources; the inverse of this is low productivity.

            The gross effects of low productivity in Nigerian Public Corporations have been affecting the lives of Nigerian negatively.  Given the rate of low productivity in these corporations, one may ask why these corporations are inherently characterized by low-productivity in spite of all government effects and financial to assistance to them which are aimed at improving the economy and thereby satisfying the ever increasing need for improved productivity.

            However, improving the performance and productivity level of public corporation is a good way of achieving a higher standard of living of people as well as boosting the prosperity of the overall Nigerian economy.

1.2 THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SUBJECT      MATTER

There have been concerted   effort by the government and the

Organized private sectors to enhance productivity in public corporations for instance, the federal and state government often times organize seminars and

Workshops aimed at making it’s personnel’s in public corporations to

Increase productivity.  These efforts have been hampering by such problems

As: Bribery and corruption, poor attitude of the workers, leadership horse 

Trading and a host of others.  The low performance in some of the public

Corporations are some times associated with the personnel in these corporations.  The personnel’s or workers do not put in their best while d at times weak organizational norms which are very inconsistent with the type working, some stay idle all through days, others come late to work and others keep absent from work with out permission.

There is a general conflict to objectives among the managers and management of public corporations as well as general laxity amongst workers who believe that government work is nobody’s work.  According to Breach. W.P (1974. P 103), “People watch their own money closer than they watch other people’s money.  Infect, lazy workers restrictive labour union, and bumbling bureaucrats all contribute to in efficiency and low-productivity in public corporations in addition to all the above problems associated with low productivity in public corporations, government regulation pressure and political inherence on public corporations contribute to low productivity problem.

Again, according to Bowing Green Ohio, an inefficient and   ineffective managerial strategies who do not accomplish the main objectives which the organization has set out do accomplish and of people working in the organization conspired to be impediment to the attainment of high productivity in public corporations according to him, there is need to reform organizational norms as it concerns behavior of workers if high productivity is to be achieved.
