In contemporary time, the practice of training employees has become a popular phenomenon in the entire personnel policy of many organizations.

The importance of human resources in an organization depends more on those resources, for attainments of its objective. However, these objectives cannot be achieved unless the organization is made up of employees who have skill, knowledge and abilities to work. Employees may have these qualities but skill find it very difficult to cope with their jobs to some factors such as organizational changes and so on. Therefore, the management of organizations involves training and development of manpower, as one of it’s various activities. When workers are employed, they are just left to stay and work until they are due for retirement but are being trained and developed in order to increase their abilities, skills and knowledge. Experiences have shown that many employees have failed in their organizations, because the provision of training as an indispensable part of management function was not rendered to them. Employees are not just trained for their own benefits only, the organization stand to gain a lot from them.

The training and development of manpower programme is a very important activity every management cannot afford to miss, because it is not every thing that can be learned in a working situation. In fact, for attainment of organizational goals, training and development programmes should be organized. A substantial amount of money is needed for such programme, but it is regarded as money will invested because of its benefits among which are:

1.  It helps to lower cost waste

2.  It helps to maintain equipment

The training of power holding company of Nigeria staff is very important however good staffs that are employed are, unless properly trained, they cannot be constant sources of efficiency.

Moreover, the future of power holding company of Nigeria and its policies may depend on them since “an untrained man in a modern world which may be menace to society”. If there is any trouble anywhere or breakdown in a machine or a mistake in a ledger, how can a quack untrained man handle it, all he can do is to fumble and patch up the trouble any how, which may lead to a more serious breakdown or a greater confusion. Really, there is no place for the untrained worker or even the intelligent amateur in these days of specialized works. In fact, training and development of workers play a large role in determining the effectiveness efficiency of the performance of (P.H.C.N).

Electric power originated towards the closing years of the list century, when the first generated plant was installed in the city of Lagos in 1898 to 1950, in order to integrate power development into a national effect, the government passed the electricity corporation of Nigeria ordinance brought under one control all the electricity undertakings previously administered by the Nigerian government electricity undertaking section of the public works department and all those undertaking which were under national authority and control.

However, to keep and maintain their workers they should be trained and developed on regular basis. Therefore, this research is centred on the need for training and development of manpower for efficient performance on the light of the objectives of power holding company of Nigeria.

In order words, every organization needs to train and develop its employees for it to achieve its goals. There is therefore, the need to find answers to these questions, why is it that some organization, despite the high cost involved in training and development activities still find it necessary to training their employees? What are the effects of these training and development to programmes on workers more or less correlated with their efficient performance in their organization?
