Emotional Intelligence helps individual in building stronger relationships, succeed at work, and achieve individual’s career and personal goals. It also helps to connect with feelings and turns intentions into actions.

The ability to manage feelings; and handle stress is another aspect of emotional intelligence that has been found to be important for successful work-life balance. This study is about the Emotional intelligence of employees, particularly in a manufacturing setting. Creating a positive work ethic for employees will unquestionably give the industry many allowances and benefits. Employee's self-awareness, managing emotions, motivating oneself, empathy, and social skills were examined. The researcher used the simple random sampling technique and selected 50 respondents in from the industry. The results, inferred that there more than half of the respondents (52%) were denoting low levels of emotional intelligence. There was no significant difference between the gender of the respondents and their emotional intelligence. Age of the respondents had no impact with regard to the dimensions of self-awareness, managing emotions, motivating oneself, empathy, and social skill.

The evaluation of the impact of crude and purified biosurfactants synthesized by Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain NCIMB 8626 was examined. Crude and purified biosurfactants impacted the available Pb present in the sediment after the incubation period of 14 days substantially with 27.41% and 27.67% reduction respectively. Maximum concentration of (sediment + Pb) was about 16.39 ± 2.08 mg/g before incubation compared with after incubation of about 15.07 ± 1.87 mg/g. The results obtained shows no significant difference between crude and purified biosurfactants, thus, determining the potential and most effective forms of the biosurfactant could not be established. In addition, there was relative increase in microorganisms most especially bacteria in treatment
samples containing crude and purified biosurfactants as most were too numerous to count. However, it appears that growth medium containing treatment samples showed a higher enumeration throughout and this may be attributed to additional nutrient sources provided by the growth medium itself. Uniquely, all the treatment samples showed significant increase in microbial population after the 14 days incubation periods compared to “before” incubation period.

Keywords: Bioremediation, lead, microorganisms, sediment, heavy metal, incubation periods.
