CHAPTER ONE 1.0: Introduction of the Study Casual employees are employees who do not have regular or systematic working hours, the study topic focuses on the factors affecting the performance of casual employees in the county government. The high level of unemployment and seasonality of the labor requirement make casual labor (paid per day) a better option to most people as compared to salaried, long term employment where the employees are paid every month. This chapter will focus on background of the study, statement of research problems, objectives of the study, research questions, significance, assumptions, limitations, delimitations and the scope of the study. 1.1: Background to the study According to Randall and Sim (2013), management of people at the work place is an integral part of the management process. To understand the critical importance of people in the organization is to recognize that human element and the organization are synonymous. A well- managed organization usually sees an average worker as the route source of quality and productivity gains. Such organizations do not look to capital investment, but to employees, as the fundamental source of improvement (Randall & Sim, 2013).
