(Inyang, 2002)
According to Grand and Smith quoted by Inyang (2002), human resources of an enterprise is the most difficult to obtain, the most expensive to maintain and the hardest to retain. This is largely due to the complexity and unpredictability of human behavior.

The personal department is primarily concerned with people at work. It has its head the personal manager who coordinates the department and liaises with other department. Therefore it may be regarded as a staff department that aided other department and coordinate human resources of the enterprise.
Nwachukwu (2007) pointed out that organization deals with people and their relationship in an enterprise. It is the organization that determines the type of people required and their relationships.
Thus the type of personal and structure required in a hospital is different from the personal and structure required in a weaving enterprise or a university. Organizing is a process of creating an organization structure to achieve objectives. This issue, the personal department of an organization according to Inyang (2002) offers the following range of service recruitment, selection and placement, employee welfare, health and safety, industrial relation and personnel research. These service forms the core component of personnel management and forms issues around around which personnel policy revolves.

The policy therefore provides guidelines for a variety of employment related issues as recruitment, selection, training, promotion, wages, collective bargaining, individual relation etc. a personal policy on training and staff development opportunities for employees to utilize the full potential in the organization. Human resource development therefore simply refers to training and staff development, which is the sector of the personal function.
