This can however be achieved with the effective utilization of its human capital. This study therefore examined manpower development and employee job performance in the public & private sectors. Cross sectional survey served as a method of data collection. A total of 100 questionnaires were administered to employees using probability sampling technique in both sectors and 88 of the distributed questionnaires were retrieved. The Chi square method was used to test research hypotheses. The findings of the study showed that staff training is not given higher priority and consideration in the public sector compared to the private sector. Findings from the study also revealed that private sector believes in human capital as the most valued asset that can help drive organizational growth. In addition to the findings showed that career growth does not bring optimal performance, especially in the public sector, where promotion is done within a particular period regardless of workers’ productivity. The study therefore recommended that organizations should strive towards training and retraining of workers from time to time as employees should not be blamed if they are not well trained. The study concluded that recognition of talents in employees by organizational development expert is one of the panaceas to improve employee job performance at work place and by implication enhance overall performance of the organization
