Maimuna Izah, Zakari Mohammed


The study assessed, from survey, the influence of human resource management practice as it relates to employees’ job performance in some Federal university libraries in the six geo-political zones of Nigeria. Stratified random sampling technique was employed to come up with six universities from each of the six zones. The researchers administered 7 copies of questionnaire each in the study areas to elicit data on the employees’ job performance. A total of 42 copies of questionnaire were administered and retrieved (100% response rate). The data collected were analysed descriptively and inferentially. The null hypothesis was tested using Kruskal Wallis statistical method. The descriptive analysis result showed that majority of the libraries studied reported that human resources management practices influenced their employees’ job performance. Inferentially, the human resources management practices have significantly influenced their staff performances. The study recommended that Federal University libraries should operate uniform human resources management practices policy enhance staff productivity, effectiveness and efficiency in their work places.
