What is HR planning?
According to Crane (1974) in Rudman
(2002) HR planning is concerned with much
more than efficient recruitment of new or
replacement employees – so that
organisations have “the right number and
kind of people in the right place, at the right
time, doing things for which they are
economically most useful”.
Human resource planning is the systematic and
continuing process of analysing an
organisation’s human resource needs under
changing conditions and integrating this
analysis with the development of personnel
policies appropriate to meet these needs.
There is only one
constant in the
universe.
• What is that?

That
is…………

“Change”
Why Human Resource
Planning is important ?

operational strategy:
(Example: Nepal Telecom staff used to operate Wireless
Set before, but at present complex IT equipments must
to handle.)
•Minimizing the risk of loosing:
(Example: Government run banks are compelled to upgrade
own staff by providing latest skills and knowledge to them to
compete with other fast growing banking organizations.)
