1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEMS
Different governments at one time or another have had cause to deliberate on the issue of evolving welfare programmes for the benefits of their nationals. The various forms that such national programmes have taken along with their importance and pertinence to human co-existence. It is therefore little wonder on the small scale that many a company consciously strive as part of their corporate strategy to establish employee welfare schemes as soon as they are found or forward.
However, in this vital area of welfare, it is not obvious to a good number of various observers what programmes they Nigerian Telecommunications (NITEL) Ltd, a corporate body from January 1955, has in stock for her employees.
In other hand, there has been a lot of policy changes to reflect the new arrangement. These changes do not come as a surprise in view of the basic differences that had existed in the defunct parent bodies. The organization has also since then undertaken among other things, a review of the salary structures and welfare programmes of the employees.
It is on this premises that this research, among other seeks to determine the present practices of employee welfare programmes in NITEL and the attitude of the employees to them.

1.4 SIGNIFICANCE AND NEED FOR THE STUDY
The roles that comprehensive employee welfare programmes play in the efficiency with which an average employee discharges responsibilities and the achievement of the overall corporate objectives of an organization cannot be underplayed.

Thus they do by setting an ideal welfare programmes for the benefits of their employees.
