Business organisations in Nigeria are often faced with the challenge of getting suitably qualified candidates to fill up job openings. The situation becomes even more complex when those who had been judged suitable and have been hired, are not properly assimilated into the organisation. This often leads to lack of job satisfaction and poor performance, which eventually makes the ultimate exit of such employees most imminent. Hence, this work employed conceptual research method to examine the complexities associated with organisational entry, assimilation and exit with a bid to reducing the tensions that go with the processes in the Nigerian context. The work was built around Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory and the leader-member exchange (LMX) theory. Findings showed that organisations make the wrong choice of workforce when they fail to take into consideration the kind of recruitment system that best suits them. Also, when there are no proper channels of communication between management and employees and among employees, the end result is low productivity and exit of workers. The study, therefore, recommended thorough recruitment process and training of employees, as well as congenial communication environment in organisations.

Keywords: Business organisation, entry, assimilation, exit, communication.
