What is Human Resource Planning?

 

In simple words, HR Planning is understood as the process of forecasting an organisation’s future human resource demand for, and supply to meet the objectives such as the right type of people in the right number. After this process, only the HRM department can initiate the recruitment and selection process. HRP is a sub-system in total organizational planning. Organizational planning includes managerial activities that set the company’s objectives for the future and determines appropriate means for achieving those objectives. HRP facilitates the realization of the company’s objectives for the future and determines appropriate means for achieving those objectives. HRP also facilitates the realization of the company’s objectives by providing the right type and the right number of personnel. HRP is variously called manpower planning, personnel planning or employment planning.

Human resource planning is the process by which an organization ensures that it has the right number and kind of people, at the right place, at the right time, capable of effectively and efficiently completing tasks that will help the organisation achieve its overall objective. Human resource planning then translates the organization’s objectives and plans into the number of workers needed to meet those objectives. Without clear cut planning, estimation of human resource need is reduced to mere guesswork.

Very briefly humans resource planning is the process of examining an organisations or individuals future human resource needs (for instance, what types of skills will be needed for jobs of the future) compared to future human resource capabilities (such as the types of skills employees or you already have) and developing human resource policies and practices to address potential problems for example, implementing training programmes to avoid skill deficiencies.
