In 200 – 250 words, what is Human Resources planning? How does the HR planning process facilitate the achievement of an organization's strategic objectives? Use examples pulled from an organization with which you are familiar.
Human Resources planning is defined as the ongoing process of systematic planning to achieve optimum use of an organization's most valuable asset, which is its’ human resources. The objective of human resource (HR) planning is to ensure the best fit between employees and jobs; while avoiding manpower shortages or surpluses. The human resources planning process should involve strategic planning which looks at strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities. In human resources planning each of the areas should be assessed and goals should be set for addressing weaknesses and capitalizing on strengths. An organization's strategic objectives can be facilitated by the Human Resources process by adequate and appropriate hiring and training practices. For example, I am a police officer at a University. Within the university, we have several posts that need to be covered at all times. We have certified and uncertified officers for those posts. Each day requires a certain amount of certified officers and uncertified officers. There are three shifts within my department. The HR department tries to make sure that each shift has the same amount of officers. Whenever the numbers get low, the HR department then hires enough personnel to make sure that we have the manpower to cover those posts and extra personnel for backup. It also falls within the labor for that company as well.
