Situational analysis and environmental scanning Forecasting demand for human resources Analysis of the supply of human resources Development of plans for action - Demand = supply ( no action) - Surplus of workers ( reduced hour, layoffs, early retirement , downsizing ) - Shortages of workers ( overtime , recruitment , transfer, secondment)

THE ACTIVITIES OF HRP


The major activity of HRP is to forecast and estimates the demand for manpower needed to meet the objective of the organisation and to analyse the supply of manpower in the organisation. Demand forecasting the assessment of future employee requirements. How many and what type of people will be needed to carry out the organisations plan in the future? Analysis of supply the assessment of current and future employee availability ( the number of people currently employed by the organisation.)

Expert forecast based on the judgement of those who are knowledgeable of future of HR needs. Trend projection forecast analysis on past and future trend of employment needs by using statistical analysis. e.g production ration=, staffing ratios Computer modelling are a series of mathematical formula to estimate work force changes eg multiple regression model.
