1.8 DEFINITION OF TERMS
Human resource planning is the process of identifying an organization's existing and future human resource needs in order to fulfill its objectives. Human resource planning should serve as a bridge between human resource management and an organization's overall strategic strategy.
Organizational performance is the comparison of an organization's actual output or results to its expected outputs (or goals and objectives).
This is the process managers utilize to discover and select appropriate organizational objectives and courses of action. The plans that result from the planning process describe the organization's objectives and the means by which they will be achieved. As with individuals, organizations cannot do everything, so they must identify their priorities and concentrate their time, energy, and other resources to achieve their goals (Stewart, 2011).
Organization: According to Stewart (2011), “organizations are established to attain goals that individuals cannot achieve on their own. Organizations provide a means of collaborating with others to reach a common objective. Organizations are distinguished by their complexity. Individuals in an organization rely on one another's efforts through interactions that enable them to work toward a common objective. However, established frameworks determine how 11 they relate to one another. It can also be defined as a collection of people having common interests or goals, such as a business or a school.
Human Resource Planning is defined as a methodical approach to the effective recruitment, retention, and deployment of personnel within a business, as well as, if necessary, the termination of personnel. Therefore, it is concerned with the movement of individuals within and sometimes out of the organization. It is more concerned with the optimal deployment of people's knowledge, talent, creative abilities, etc., and is therefore both qualitative and quantitative. Denisi and Griffin(2nd Edition) describe human resource planning as “the process of anticipating the supply and demand for human resources within an organization and generating action plans to align the two.”
