Every organization needs a thoroughly executed HRP in order to translate the objectives of the company to achieve its strategic goals. As defined, HRP is the continuous process of systematic planning ahead to achieve optimum use of an organization’s most valuable asset—quality employees.
To efficiently put in place an effective HRP, we rounded up five easy-to-implement steps that can guide you in your HRP.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]1. Assessing existing labor supply
Identifying the company’s current human resources supply is the first most important step to a successful HRP. Through this, the People Team of the company analyzes the strength of the organization based on the number of employees, their skills, qualifications, positions, benefits, and performance levels.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]2. Forecasting labor demand
Having a vision for the future of the company’s workforce helps drive decisions whether to retain existing numbers of employees and further develop their talent or to acquire additional team members to solidify the company’s competitive advantage. 
Some of the questions that must be answered in this step are:

  • Will your company need to grow its human resources in number?
  • Will you need to stick to your current staff but improve their productivity through efficiency or new skills training? 
  • Are there potential employees available in the marketplace? 

One of the common mistakes that HRs must avoid doing, according to Uploan’s VP for People and Culture Fleur Saguid, is sleeping on a headcount forecast or company goals.
“You may have good projects and plans for your existing headcount but (especially in scaling companies) it could change rapidly in a span of 2-3 quarters. Everything you have planned for a team of 50 employees may have the same output as to a group of 100,” Fleur underscores.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]3. Matching labor supply and demand
Third important HRP step requires the organization to balance the labor demand with supply. In this particular step, HR must create a strategic plan in linking the organization’s demand for quality staff with the supply available in the market. HR must answer the following questions in this particular step:

  • Should employees learn new skills?
  • Does the company need more managers?
  • Do all employees play to their strengths in their current roles?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]4. Developing talent acquisition strategies
After taking enough time to analyze organizational data, converting into a sensible forecast, and seeing that sweet spot between balancing labor supply and demand, the HR Department is now ready to implement the headhunting process. This step requires collaborative effort and budget to be able to recruit, select, and successfully hire talents that match the company’s culture. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]An effective HR planning constitutes thorough data gathering and analysis that aids HR in “executing more useful and unique initiatives rather than just following the traditional and or trendy HR activities,” Fleur says.
