CHAPTER ONE

  INTRODUCTION

As human beings grow, more numerous they have been subdivided to increase productive efficiency.  This process known as the division of labour has led to increasing specialization of the functions of an individual workers.

Organizations, be it public or private, large or small, are set up to achieve specific organizational goals and objectives. These goals and objectives include profit maximization of socio-economic well-being of members etc.

In recent years, the Nigerian government is showing increasing concern over the performance of her fully owned enterprises.  This current privatization and commercialization of governments owned cooperation is example of this concern for performance.

Secretaries as organizations members and agent through whom organizations achieve their objectives are very complex in nature.  Basely and Robinson (1964) states that the work of the secretary varies according to the kind of products or service being rendered by the firm in which he is employed.  The size of the organisation, the position of the secretary’s employer in the organization, and his employer’s manner or method of wok.

One of the problems of secretaries is the hierarchical structure o the profession.  A secretary is ranked according to her level of education or grade.  In the working system in the Nigerian economy, there are many problems and difficulties encountered by all classes of workers and which in olden days were called stenographers, typist etc. are now designated secretarial, Assistants  I, II,  III and IV.

Problems ranging from the environment, public relations, accommodations, transport, the boss, salary and state governments are at presents raced with the problem of running result through efficient combination of resources at their disposal. These resources are man, machines, materials and money of these, man is regarded as the most important because he controls all other resources.  The failure of the enterprises can therefore be traced to a failure in the managements of the humans resources in the enterprises.

Therefore, the problem of this study is to identify the working conditions of  the office environment of a professional secretary and to evaluate how  these affects  her productivity.

Robins (1978) opines  that he management of human resources simply means “how to achieve bigger and better results through the efforts of people working in the organization”.  This  is basically concerned with the integration of personal aspiration of the employees or groups of employees within that organization.

Robins (1978) further asset that people participated in an organized enterprise and indeed in all kinds of groups in order to achieve some gods that they will necessarily work and contribute all they can to be sure that these goals are accomplished.  It has been observed that one needs the rights skills to accomplish and it follows therefore that employers will value any behaviour that is the actions people put into their jobs and the consequences of those actions.

What propels those action?  What factors influence and affect a secretary’s work performance?  How should a secretary’s work performance be improved?  The answers to these questions are the focal points of this very study.
