Abstract


The development of people at work beyond level at which they assumed duty when appointed has
been a source of concern to all stakeholders including Psychologist. The public sector is made up of
civil service and parastatals with which the government executes its programmes. Getting the best out
of any employee in the public sector in Nigeria in Nigeria requires adequate training However, the
possibility of this training has been an herculean task due to lack of adequate training policy and provi-
sion of fund for the required training. This research investigates the human resources development
situation in the public sector of Nigeria by conducting a survey of one thousand and two hundred hu-
man resource officers to ascertain their perception of human resource development. Data were col-
lected with a structured questionnaire and analyzed with descriptive statistics while hypothesis formu-
lated was tested with t-test. The study revealed that human resources development is not just for indi-
vidual, but also for the organization as it improves performance.
