Every organization has human resources as part of its resources. The organization cannot function without people working together and whenever people work together, the personnel management function must be performed and executed. Other resources may include physical, financial and informational. However, the most vital among all these resources seems to be the human element.

The human resources is the concern of personnel management. Personnel management deals with the bringing of a person into an organization, his behaviour in the work situation, his interests and relation-ship both with his fellow workers and the organization. It is the series of management activities, which procures personnel for the organization to achieve effectives performance towards organizational growth.

Therefore this human element does not just come, they are recruited based on qualification. Recruitment is an of the process of staffing in an organization. It is also concerned with developing a pool of job candidate in line with the human resources plan. In this case, candidates are usually located through newspapers and professional journal advertisements, employment agencies and visits campus. It comes immediately after human resources planning. Recruitment

Seen as that process of assessing a job, announcing the vacancy, arousing interest and stimulating people to apply

In recruitment, there is general one is the most appropriate for operative employees, which takes place if the organization needs a group of workers of a certain type, example is typists or sales people. Another one is specialized recruiting, which is used mainly for executives or specialists, occurs when the organization desires s particular. In this , candidates receive individual attention over an extended period of time. The process of recruitment must be centered in one place and in the hands of one person or group. Only in this way can there be a sufficient concentration of exercise, knowledge and record to provide the possibility of efficiency in service both to applicants and to the organization.

While selection is the process that leads the firm to choose from a list of applicant. The person or persons who will match the selection criteria or the vacant post with consideration of current environmental conditions is given the job. Application forms, resumes, interviews and reference checks are commonly used selection goals. The application form serves three purposes in selection. They are :-

  • Show that the applicant desires a position. 
  • Provides the interviewer with the basic information needed to conduct the interview.
  • It becomes part of the organization’s information if hired.

Selection process is a matter of satisfying a company’s present needs. It is

An activity which influences the shape of a company’s future health and its cumulative results predetermine the future health of the enterprise. Selection process especially at high level is no longer a question of trying to fill a closely defined slot but, as Plumbley (1976: 38) matching process between the capacities and inclination of the candidates and the demands inherent in a given job or career pattern.

Furthermore, the history of Nigerian Bottling company (NBC) dates to forty (40) years ago. The company which has made phenomenal process, tapped its first soft drink production with the world’s most popular beverage called coca-cola. At this time, only few plants were established in the country. This Nigerian bottling company (NBC) was in the town of Atlanta in Georgia United state of America (U.S.A) in the year 1886

That a man named Dr .John Styth the Pemberton, a pharmacist first initiated the plans for the world’s best soft drink. Having succeeded in brewing the drink a man named Frank M. Robinson – Dr. Pemberton’s partner and book-keeper designed the flowing distinguishing trade mark and gave coca –cola its name.

Following this remarkable feat achieved by Dr. Pemberton, many countries in every part of the globe who have heard of the this drink began to have vicious desire taste made of this drink. This was also made possible through Dr. Pemberton’s advertising and marketing activities.

However, this coca-cola came into Nigeria in the year 1953. this was when the Nigerian Bottling company opened it s first plant in Lagos. Following the uncontrollable demand for its product in Nigeria, the Nigerian bottling company, in a bid to reach the nook and cranny of Nigeria had to have several depots (branches).

Presently, in Nigeria the company operates in areas such as Akwa, Abakaliki, Nsukka, Ikon and 9th mile corner Enugu etc The products include: Fanta soda, sprite, Krest, or Bitter lemon, Fanta orange,Fanta Ginger ale, Fanta tonic,Evatable-water and coca-cola coke etc.

Moreover, these establishment that mentioned above were made again in areas like Benin, Lagos, Port-Harcourt in September 1962,. The company started production capacity was 350,000 hector per annum, but now, the capacity has hit about two million hector stride taken by the company within this period, the Board of Directors and management hope that you as an employees of the company will contribute your quota in insuring its continued growth and development.

Finally, as Yoder (1976:278) observed staffing as a process that begins with the determination of man-power needs for the organization and ends with the inventors of capabilities, recruitment, selection, placement and orientation.


Selection and recruitment is a step in management development, which help fundamentally to find and attract potential employees who it successful, eventually fill vacant positions.

In management, professionalism developed states of selection and recruitment when employed in conjunction with other tools of personnel assessment, as well as complimenting input of sound job design programme may significantly facilitate the development and maintenance of efficient work force and indeed, the utilization and conservation of human resources.

In fact, in a firm’s working life, abundant evidence clearly prove that these tests, all thing being equal are creditable predictors of employee’s job performance.

However, the Nigerian societal immorality and political influences have created discrepancies in selection procedures through such vices as favouritism, tribalism and nepotism.

These are problems arising from vague description of job by these personnel management. Because of these problems, the needs for a close up examination of the whole selection process on labour turn-over in Nigerian Bottling company Plc 9th mile
