Manpower planning is very important in all the organization. It is very important activity and
very useful ingredient for long and successful growth of organization. There are certain ways
that are to be followed by every organization, which ensures that it has right number and kind of
people, at the right place and right time, so that organization can achieve its planned objective.
The objectives of Human Resource Department are Human Resource Planning, Recruitment and
Selection, Training and Development, Career planning, Transfer and Promotion, Risk
Management, Performance Appraisal and so on.
For every organization it is important to have a right person on a right job. Recruitment and
Selection plays a vital role in this situation. Shortage of skills and the use of new technology are
putting considerable pressure on how employers go about Recruiting and Selecting staff.
With reference to this context, this project is been prepared to put a light on Manpower planning.
This project includes Meaning and Definition of Manpower planning, Need and Importance of
Manpower planning, Limitations and benefits of manpower planning. It does include personnel
planning and manpower planning in organization. Next is recruitment and selection process
which includes various steps.
Manpower planning is very important component. It needs practical examples and explanation
this project includes.

Planning for manpower is more important than planning for any other resource as
demand for the latter depends upon the size and structure of the former whether it is in a country
or in an industry. Further, management of human resource hardly begins from human resource
planning. In fact it is the basis for most of the other functions.
Through planning management strives to have the right number and right kind of people
at the right places at the right time, doing things, which result in both the organization and the
individual receiving maximum long-run benefit. It is an integrated approach to performing the
planning aspects of the personnel function in order to have a sufficient supply of adequately
developed and motivated people to perform the duties and tasks required to meet Organizational
objectives and satisfy the individual needs and goals of Organizational members.
Manpower planning may be viewed as foreseeing the human resource requirements of an
organization and the future supply of human resources and (i) making necessary adjustments
between these two and Organizational plans; and (ii) foreseeing to possibility of developing the
supply of human resources in order to match it with requirements by introducing necessary
changes in the functions of human resource management. In this definition, human resource
means skill, knowledge, values, ability, commitment, motivation etc., in addition to the number
of employees.
Manpower planning like production planning, financial planning and marketing planning,
should be an unified, comprehensive and integrated part of the total corporation. Manpower
manager provides inputs like key HR areas, HR environmental constraints and internal HR
capabilities and HR capability constraints to the corporate strategists. The corporate strategists in
turn communicate their needs and constraints to the HR manager.

Literature Review
Manpower planning, also known as human resources planning (HRP), is the starting
point in staffing function. HR planning basically deals with forecasting of the additional human
resources required in an organization in future, though there is not complete agreement among
writers and practitioners on the exact scope of HR planning function. Although manpower
planning means different things to different people, general agreement exists on its ultimate
objectives---the most effective use of scarce talent in the interests of the labor and the
The employment function of the Personnel or Human Resource Manager is concerned
with the task of hiring people to fill current or future job vacancies in the organization. For
making the hiring practices most effective, answers must be sought to the following questions:
1. What are the requirements of the jobs to be filled?
2. What kinds of and how much manpower must be hired?
3. What sources of recruitment may be utilized for procurement?
4. What procedures should be adopted to screen the candidates for employment?
5. What is the utility of employment test and interviews in the selection process?
6. What is the place of transfers and promotions in employment and placement?
Manpower may be regarded as the quantitative and qualitative measurement of work
force required in an organization and planning in relation to manpower may be regarded as
establishing objectives to develop human resources in line with broad objectives of the
organization. Manpower Planning may thus be expressed as a process by which the management
ensures the right number of people and right kind of people, at the right place, at the right time
doing right things for which they are suited for the achievement of goals of the organization.

Meaning of Manpower Planning

Manpower Planning aims at determining the manpower needs of the organization both in
right number and of right kind. It further aims at the continuous supply of right kind of personnel
to fill various positions in the organization.

According to Decenzo and Robbins, Manpower 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 those tasks that will help the organization
achieve its overall objectives.

To quote Dale S. Beach, Manpower Planning is the process of determining and ensuring
that the organization will have an adequate number of qualified persons, available at the proper
times, performing jobs which meet the needs of the enterprise and which provide satisfaction for
the individual involved.

Manpower Planning is a continuous process. It cannot be rigid or static, it is amenable to

modifications, review and adjustments in accordance with the needs of the organization or the
changing circumstances. In simple terms it is the process of determining manpower requirements
and the means for meeting those requirements in order to carry out the integrated plan for the
organization. It is a two-way process by which management can project the future manpower
requirements and develop suitable action plans to accommodate the implications of projections.
Thus, manpower planning is the process of developing and determining objectives, policies and
programs that will procure, develop and utilize human resources so as to achieve the goals of the

Objectives of Manpower Planning.


To ensure optimum use of Human Resources currently employed.

To avoid imbalances in the distribution and allocation of Human Resources.

To assess or forecast future skill requirements for the accomplishment of the

organizations overall objectives.

To provide control measure to ensure availability of necessary resources when required.

To control the cost aspect of human Resources.

To formulate transfer and promotion policies.

Importance of Manpower Planning

Manpower Planning is a two-phased process by which management can project future
requirements and develop manpower plans. It helps in proper recruitment and selection so that
right types of people are available to occupy various positions in the organization. It also
facilitates designing of training programs for the employees to develop the required skills in
them. Thus, manpower planning plays an important role in the effective management of
Systematic manpower planning provides lead-time for the acquisition and training of employees
to meet future requirements. It is all the more crucial because the lead time for procuring
personnel is a time consuming process and in certain cases, one may not always get the requisite
type of personnel needed for the jobs. Non-availability of suitable manpower may result in
postponement or delays in executing new projects and expansion programs, which ultimately
lead to lower efficiency and productivity. To overcome this, an organization must plan out its
manpower requirements well in advance so that it could compete effectively with its competitors
in the market

Benefits of Manpower Planning.


It results in reduced labour costs as it helps the management to anticipate shortages

and/or surpluses of manpower and correct these imbalances before they become
unmanageable and expensive.

It is a better basis for planning employee development that is designed to make optimum
use of workers skills with in the organization.

It enables identification of the gaps of the existing manpower so that corrective training
could be imparted. Thus, the training programme becomes more effective.

It leads to improvement in the overall business planning process.

It helps in formulating managerial succession plan as apart of the replacement planning

process, which is necessitated when job-change plans for managers are formulated.
Besides, this exercise would provide enough lead-time for identifying and developing
managers to move up the corporate ladder.

It leads to a greater awareness of the importance of sound manpower management

throughout the organization.

It serves as a tool to evaluate the effect of alternative manpower actions and policies.

Process of Manpower Planning.

The process of manpower planning involves the following steps;

Determination of objectives of manpower planning.

Preparation of current manpower inventory.

Demand forecasting.

Supply forecasting.

Estimating the net manpower requirements.

manpower planning has to be concerned with all the steps at all time. He may have to revise
employment plan and training and development program from time to time depending upon
the changes in circumstances such as sudden changes in volume of production, unexpected
high rate of labor turnover, obsolescence of existing skills and so on. A brief explanation of
the steps in the manpower planning process is given below:

Local Sales

Only in few years back textile sector in Bangladesh was left behind but current scenarios is
different. In recent years a mentionable figure of money has been invested in this industry.
Government is also encouraging this sector. Government is making some favorable policies and
minimizing the regulations, so that this sector can be grown up.
Among the domestic companies Square is one of the leading one. The other potential competitors
are Padma Textiles, Shamim Textile etc. Competition will be severe after 2005, that is, during the
post multifiber agreement period. World market will be Quota free at that time. So Bangladesh

Recruitment and Selection process in SQUARE

Recruitment is the process through which the organization seeks applicants for potential
employment. Selection refers to the process by which it attempts to identify applicants with the
necessary knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics that will help the company achieve
its goals, companies engaging in different strategies need different types and numbers of
employees. The strategy a company is pursuing will have a direct impact on the types of
employees that it seeks to recruit and selection.

Source of recruitment
There are two kinds of source SQUARE uses for recruitment .They are
1. External source
2. Internal source.
We try to discuss all relative sources which are used for recruitment in SQUARE.

Internal source
SQUARE thinks that current employees are a major source of recruits for all but entry-level
positions. Whether for promotions or for Lateral job transfers, internal candidates already know
the informal organization and have detailed information about its formal policies and procedures.
Promotions and transfer are typically decided by operating managers with little involvement by
HR department.

Job-posting programs

HR departments become involved when internal job openings are publicized to employees
through job positioning programs, which informs employees about opening and required
qualifications and invite qualify employees to apply. The notices usually are posted on company
bulletin boards or are placed in the company newspaper. Qualification and other facts typically
are drawn from the job analysis information.
The purpose of job posting is to encourage employees to seek promotion and transfers the help
the HR department fill internal opening and meet employees personal objectives. Not all jobs
openings are posted .Besides entry level positions, senior management and top stuff positions
may be filled by merit or with external recruiting. Job posting is most common for lower level
clerical, technical and supervisory positions.

Departing Employees
An often overlooked source of recruiters consists of departing employees. Many employees
leave because they can no longer work the traditional 40 hours work week .School, child care
needs and other commitments are the common reason. Some might gladly stay if they could
rearrange their hours of work or their responsibilities .Instead, they quit when a transfer to a parttime job may retain their valuable skill and training. Even if part-time work is not a solution, a
temporary leave of absence may satisfy the employee and some future recruiting need of the

External source
When job opening cannot be filled internally, the HR department of SQUARE must look outside
the organization for applicants. We discuss all the external source of recruitment at bellow:

Walk-ins and Write-ins:

Walk-ins are some seekers who arrived at the HR department of SQUARE in search of a job;
Write-ins are those who send a written enquire .both groups normally are ask to complete and
application blank to determine their interest and abilities. Usable application is kept in an active
file until a suitable opening occurs or until an application is too old to be considered valid,
usually six months.

Employee referrals:

Employees may refer job seekers to the HR department .Employee referrals have several
advantages .Employees with hard to find job skill may no others who do the same work.
Employees referrals are excellent and legal recruitment technique, but they tend to maintain the
status quo of the work force in term of raise , religions , sex and other characteristics , possibly
leading to charges of discrimination.

Want ads describe the job and the benefits, identify the employer, and tell those who are
interested how to apply .They are most familiar form of employment advertising .for highly
specialist requites, ads may be placed in professional journal or out of town newspaper in areas
with high concentration of the desired skills

Employers and employees each have their own sets of needs and values, and successful

collective bargaining, agreement influence the outcome achieve by each side.
