Human resource planning is a set of plan which is concerned about to take people in, through and then out of an organization, in other words this is the strategy used for the acquisition, utilization, improvement and retention of he manpower to achieve the results the organization requires. This is also a plan which calculates the knowledge and skills of the people as well as the productivity. This process of plan inning will be done by the HER department of the organization and other managers from other division should submit the necessity Of the HER department. Why HARP? Competition: Very often the businesses feel the pressure of expanding and hire more labors in order to be competitive in the market. * Technology: Demand for employees in certain industries is caused, because of the technology advancement. * Increased Customer demand: An increase demand for product and services may require more resources to help produce or deliver services. * Economic: Growth of the economy or lower interest rates cause increased spending, and often increased business opportunities. Changes in the labor market impact your ability to find and keep employees. Workforce changes: These include resignations, terminations, leave of absences, death, change in employment status and retirement. Basically we know, today’s context every organization has adapted to a critical tool named planning to manage the downsizing and redundancies of the organization to its success. Elected company To gain the business objectives and meet the competitive advantage of an organization, so this is why we need to implement Human Resource Planning. Human Resource planning analyzes the present environment and it focuses on the organizations long term goals.
Table 1 Human Resource planning process at Metropolitan Group. Table 2 Basically this is the chart we use at HER department; this is the Human resource forecasting. This is how we analyze our labor supply and demands. And this is the best way to control industry, regulatory, governmental and economic changes to improve the organizational success. There are three steps to follow. 1. Forecasting the demand of labor. 2. Determining labor supply. 3. Determining labor surpluses and shortages. Forecasting the demand of labor These are the areas where we as Metropolitan group consider some factors like. Objectives of the organization. * Staff utilization. * The cost of labor. * Social factors. * Technological factors * Political factors. * Economic factors. * Demand generation. * Growth. * Employee turnover. And to analyze these factors there are various methods used in today’s context, it differs from organization to organization. Like -Managerial judgment, work study method, computerized forecast, etc-. But Metropolitan group has a method to forecast the demand of labor; it is referred as Trend analysis.
This analysis is mainly for the demand of labor forecasts and focus on the employment requirement of the organization. This analysis gives a valid financial statements when comparing over the years, so that’s we intended to use this method for demand of labor forecasts. And some other elements are mentioned below. 1. This analysis calculates the annual sales volume. 2. Total number of employees. 3. And it compares the productivity ratio. Forecasting on the supply of labor Human resource Forecasting on supply of labor is the next step Of an organization after forecasting on demand of labor.
This process runs through internally and externally of an organization. Internally this is the level checking on the availability of transfers, promotions, retirements and recalls of laid employees and externally this the level where the organization checks on the market and recruit new employees. There are some factors to be considered as follows. 1 . Supply and Demands of Jobs. 2. Literacy rate of nation. 3. Rate of population. 4. Industries and expected growth rates and levels. 5. Technological Developments. 6. Compensation system based on Education, Experience, skills and age.
To analyze the forecasting on the supply of labor Metropolitan Group uses the technique named Employee supply analysis. Below are the areas the employees are classified in the organ action. 1 . Function 2. Department 3. Job Title 4. Skills 5. Qualifications 6. Training 7. Age 8. Length of service Performance appraisal results 9. Determining labor surpluses and shortages This is the place where every organization try and close the gap between demand and supply. * Did Demand exceed supply? * Did Supply Exceeds demand? These are the basic two questions asked when we determine the labor shortages and surpluses.
Metropolitan Group analyzes it through the subject of the Labor turn over and retention. This is the calculation of the employer’s gains and losses of the employees. And this process calculates the rate of leaving of employees of the organization and the replacements for them. This can be analyzed using many methods like * Crude labor turnover rate * Labor Stability * Cohort analysis * Half life * Census method * Retention profile But Metropolitan uses the method of Crude Labor turnover rate Number of eaves in a period/Average numbered people in the periods turnover 2. The recruitment and selection process in the selected organizations Recruitment is the process of identifying the needs to employ a new employee for the organization and Metropolitan group advertise the job application forms on the own website, papers, and other websites like Topics, Gigabit, etc as well as giving the contract to the Job agencies like DMS Staffing and Delineating agencies for external recruitment and internal recruitment is done within divisions and other business group of Metropolitan which is a cost effective way for any organization, because if you o that maybe no need of training and development, advertising and other scenarios. Selection is the process to fill the Vacancies of selected positions, Selection process at metropolitan varies according to the position you’re applying for, because one process can’t fit on to all positions, but following tools will be used in certain circumstances. * Interview * IQ and Knowledge Tests * Presentations Basically if you are applying for the post of Marketing Executive at Metropolitan your selection criteria will be only based on three Interviews – Interview with HER department head, immediate superior (That is you’re
Marketing Manager) and with a Person like a General Manager or the CEO of the company and IQ Tests.
