The need for making human asset of an economy, public and private, relevant and adequately responsive to the
growth and development of the nation is stressed in this paper. Public sector is owned and controlled by the
government. This makes government to be the largest employer of labour. The onus of developing human
resources largely devolves on employers of labour. Human resources are relevant in organization for they make
things happen. The paper critically examined the concept of human resource, human resource management and
workers development and training as well as the relevance of human resource and the need for employee
development in an organization. This paper submits that training and re-training of workers is needed, especially
for low-skilled workers for any organization to survive and realize its goals in this era of globalization and
competitive economy.
