This study examines manpower development and utilization in organizations using Uzo- Uwani L.G.A as a case study. The importance of personnel training and development in any organization cannot be overemphasize if we recognize the fact that the structure that sustains the organization depends on the individuals that operate it. The major aim for personnel training is to endow the staff with the required knowledge to qualify him for a particular position of employment. The theoretical framework used in the study is the process-systems model of the organization as postulated by Wendell French which explains organizations and human resources management. Data for the study were collected using primary and secondary sources. The results of the work indicated that training retraining and staff development are all important factor that affect staff morale in Uzo-Uwani L.G.A because they enhance their promotion, career prospect and responsibility. It is our finding that those with WASC/NECO are the major group favoured by the training and development programmes. It is also our finding that trained staffs are not effectively utilized after training thereby resulting in a good number of trained staff preferring other jobs outside Uzo- Uwani after training.
