The result shows that most (57.4%) of the respondents were men and 17.0% of them were engaged in other occupation. Furthermore,   (95.7%) of the respondents asserted that human resource development unit develop the key competency that enables the individual staffs to perform well on current and future jobs through planned learning activities. However, (95.8%) of the respondents opined that the unit is seen as strategic partner in developing and attaining organizational goals and strategies while, (90.4%) viewed it as a unit that improved employee’s skill, knowledge and attitude effectively. Also (91.5%) of the respondents were of the opinion that it provides a form of incentives to the employees. Results of chi-square analysis showed a significant association between other occupations of respondents (x2 = 7.125, P < 0.05) and staff performance while Pearson Product Moment Correlation showed that there is no significant relationship between incentives given to staffs (r = -0.01, P > 0.05) and staff performance. The study concludes that human resources development unit’s activities are effective to both the junior and senior staff in the organisation.
