Human Resource Planning

HRP basically involves applying the fundamental planning process to the human resource needs of an organization. To be effective, any human resource plan must be derived from the long-range plans of the organization. Unfortunately, HRP is quite often than not, isolated from organizational planning. A common erTor which human resource planners make is that they focus their attention on the short term replacement needs.

They do not tie in with the long-range plans of the enterprise. Focusing on short-term replacement needs is a natural consequence of not integrating human resource planning Nature with organizational planning. Human resource planning and organizational planning must be integrated logically and fruitfully. A non-integrated approach almost always leads to surprises which force the personnel I human resource planners to focus on short-term crises.
