1.1Background of the study
The attainment of organizational goals depend largely on the effort of its’ human resources. No organization survive without the effort of manpower, that why management of any organization must recognize human element as the most vital ingredient that sustain the growth and long survival of the organization. For a sustainable development and continuous increase in productivity, the management must actively be up and doing in manpower training and development programme because training bridge the gap between the actual performance and expected performance.
We are in an age in which human resource or manpower development largely accounts for the disparity between a progressive and a retrogressive organization. Human resource is a useful tool every organization has for its optimum performance. As science and technology brings about new ideas in industries, new goods and services are designed and produced. This leads to increased need to improve the skills, knowledge and welfare of the workforce that is instrumental to converting these ideas into realities for high productivity. The adoption of efficient training and manpower development techniques is an issue of urgent attention to management in industries and organizations. Following the world-wide fast technological advancement, training and manpower development has taken a greater dimension in Nigeria since independence. To tackle the problem of training and manpower development in independent Nigeria, more universities and colleges for higher learning were established in the country. Government’s further interest in training and manpower development in independent Nigeria began in 1963 when it established the National Manpower Board. The Board was to ensure adequate supply of skilled and semi-skilled manpower needed to produce the basic goods and services the people needed in the post-independence years and also launch the country into a new industrial era ( F. Fomsi Esther1 and C. Ogoke Charles, 2019)
The more increase and diversification in industrial activities, the more there was a need for training and manpower development. In industries such as brewing industry where highly skilled and semi-skilled manpower are needed to manage the sophisticated technology involved in modern brewing, it becomes inevitable to adopt modern training and manpower development techniques. This is to keep in touch with the stipulations of the National Policy on Education by the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FGN) concerning training and skills acquisitions which recommended that training should help individuals comprehend their environments; acquire useful skills, abilities and competencies for mental and physical self-development so as to live and effect development in their society (F. Fomsi Esther and C. Ogoke Charles,2019)
