Using descriptive survey design, this study investigated impact of human capital management on staff job performance in State Universal Basic Education Boards (SUBEBs) in North Central Nigeria. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The population of the study comprised 2,431 staff in 7 SUBEBs in North Central Nigeria. A sample of 365 (15%) staff was used. The instrument used for data collection was questionnaire, containing 10 items. It was validated by two research experts in the Department of Educational Foundations, Benue State University, Makurdi and it yielded a Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of 0.92. Data collected was analysed using mean scores and standard deviations to answer the research questions. The hypotheses were tested using Chi-square at 0.05 level of significance. Findings of the study showed that staff training and staff engagement have significant impact on staff job performance. It was recommended among others that the chairmen and management of the SUBEBs should make it a policy to regularly carry out staff training to enable both new and existing staff to acquire relevant skills that would enable the effective performance of their job towards the realization of the objectives of Universal Basic Education in North Central Nigeria.
