Andrew O. Suleman, Ogbette, Afamefuna Samuel


This article examined the implications of human resource management outsourcing in public organisations in Nigeria. The reviewed literature showed that the policy has positive and negative implications to the public organisations. In spite of the negative implications, human resource management outsourcing was increasing among the public organisations in Nigeria as the benefits were seen to out-weigh the negative implications. Management of the public organisations either partially or fully outsourced the management of some provided essential support services by the non-core grades of employees in the organisations. The management of the organisations adopted the policy essentially to cut cost on personnel maintenance and to also achieve service delivery of the out-sourced service(s). Žitkiene and Blusyt (2015) management model provide the theoretical explanation for the study.
