This study investigated the influence of human resource development programmes on job security among industrial workers in Nigeria. This is for the purpose of ascertaining the relevance of human resource development programmes, as an alternative approach to human capital formation, to job security among industrial workers. A total of 320 respondents were selected using stratified sampling technique to reflect the two strata of public and private organizations. Two sets of questionnaire, with five subscales, titled 'Human Resource Development Programmes Scale' (MDPS) and Workers 'Job Security Scale' (WJSS) were used for data collection. The research questions were analyzed using Regression Analysis and t-test statistical methods at 0.05 alpha levels. The finding revealed that human resource development programmes have significantly influenced job security. Also, there was no significant difference in the level of both female and male workers' participation in human resource development programmes in both public and private organizations. Based on the findings of study, it is recommended that human resource development programmes should be given priority by all organizations in order to forestall job security for all level of workers. Also, training needs of the organization as well as that of workers must be identified before making recommendations for training.
