CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

In discussing the impact of modern communication equipment on the secretarial performance in organizations; two factors are to be recognized. Technological growth and organizational structure. Organisation here does not mean only structure but includes aspects of interactions between people and machines in achieving set organizational goals. It is said that successes of any person or organisation depends largely on information available to a human person and the constant modification of modern communication equipment that is fully up-dated with modern information.

This ascertain brings us to the purpose of an office which includes the following: Administration, clerical work, money handling information communication systems which is an embodiment of secretarial operations. Office as a mini-social system according to farber and Barr 1979 plays important roles in defining responsibilities. For the aforementioned reasons the secretary must be available to organize and run the office completely. Here the secretary is seen as an executive assistant who has a mastery of  office/organizational skills. She has to be familiar with the manipulation of the modern communication equipment which is made to enhance his/her performance.

Office automation provides increased productivity through improved access to data, faster responses to customer demands and faster decision makings. The invention of modern office equipment were necessitated as a result of the growth in large scale enterprises and also as a technological break through. The office therefore relies much on sophisticated office equipment in order to cope with the ever-increasing activities in the organizations. Like in Nigeria Breweries Plc. Which is one of the largest quoted company in Nigeria stock market has successive secretarial functions. This company started in Nigeria in 1946 producing star larger and has witnessed a lot of human and technological transformations. In their policies to keep a healthy work force in personnel and machines they have taken their secretarial operations to greater heights. This they were able to achieve through the introduction of any equipment that will enhance the job of their secretaries and also customer service satisfaction.

Strategically, actions, planning and implementation to ensure that tomorrow is achieved. Nigerian breweries plc. is futuristic in their business approach made possible by the able and vision driven leadership of their past and immediate Directors/ Chief executives that pilots the affairs of the business in conjunction with Heineken international. Recently a multi-billion Naira ultra modern brewery has been cited in Enugu state with the slogan that it is a world class investment that can complete with another out-fit in any part of the world is modern communication and production and delivery equipment. The introduction of modern office equipment in Nigerian Breweries plc mainly the computer in every office of the company also shows that the secretarial performance goes with the acquisition of these modern equipments.

It seems however, that although the higher levels of management might not make much direct use of modern office technology the secretary will. This office automation for the secretarial is in providing the secretary with a system that meets the real need identified as being important rather than the ones of typing and stenography that are thoughts to be important.
