Concept of HR Planning & Forecasting:

HR planning is the first step in the recruiting and selection process. `Human Resource planning is the process of assessing the organization’s human resource needs in light of organizational goals and making plans to ensure that a competent stable workforce is employed `  —Wendell French.

`Personal planning is the process of deciding what positions the firm will have to fill, and how to fill them.’—Gary Dessler.

In the words of coleman bruce (1997) HRM is the process of determining manpower requirements and the means of meeting those requirements in order to carry out the integrated plan of the organization.

According to the above definitions, HRP consists of the following elements:

  • Establishing and reorganizing the future job requirement;
  • Identifying deficiency in terms of quantity;
  • Identifying the deficiency in terms of quality & specification ;
  • Identifying  the sources of right type of man ;
  • developing the available manpower and
  • Ensuring the effective utilization of workforce.

 

Steps of HR planning:

HR planning is a process involving few stages:

Integrate HR planning with corporate Planning the first stage of Hr planning is to integrate it with corporate planning. All manpower planning stems from business plans in relation to a corporate strategy.

Forecasting internal & external environment:

The second stage in HR planning is to forecast of assess the internal and external environmental factors that affect demand and supply of labor. Environmental factors include government influences economic, geographic and competitive condition.

Assessment of internal HR capabilities:

The next stage is the analysis of internal inventory of HR capabilities. Assessment of internal strengths and weakness as a part of HR planning requires the current job and employees capabilities are audited and organizational capabilities are inventoried.

Predicting & forecasting HR demand and supply:

The information gathered from external environmental Scanning and assessment of internal strengths and weaknesses is used to predict of forecast HR supply and demand in light of organizational objectives and strategies.

To locate the required HR:

Once the demand for HR has been forecasted, then their availability must be identified. The forth stage of HR planning is to locate the sources from where personnel required will be available. The source may be internal and external.

Allocation of HR

The final stage o HRP is concerned with allocation o human resources within an organization over time.

Forecasting HR Needs:

When a firm makes a plan for employment requirements, the firm usually needs to forecast personal needs, the supply of inside & outside candidates. Different techniques like, trend analysis, ratio analysis, scatter plot can be used to estimate staffing needs.

Trend analysis

Trend analysis means studying variation in the firm’s employment levels over last five years.

The scatter plot
A scatter plot shows graphically how two variables; business activity and firm’s staffing levels are related. For example, a newly established bank, which has 20 branches, expects to expend to 58 branches over the next five years. The HR director wants to forecast the requirement of manpower. The director can analyze the relationship between size of another 5 well-reputed banks (in terms of number o branches) and their existing manpower.

Name of BanksSize (number of Br.)Existing manpower
Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Limited   581215
Prime Bank411024
NCC bank411000
Exim bank581200
Standard Bank22449

If the bank carefully draws in a line to minimize the distances between the line and each one of the plotted points, the bank will be able to estimate the optimum number of staff needed for each bank size. Thus, for a 58 branches bank, the HR director would assume he needs nearly 1215 staffs.

Ratio Analysis

A forecasting technique for determining future staff needs by using ratio between, for example, number of customers and employee needed.

Forecasting the Internal HR Supply:

Once the demand for labor is predicted, it is necessary to forecast the supply of labor that the organization will already have available to meet the demand. The internal supply of labor is constantly changing as new people enter and others resin, retire or are discharged. to predict the future supply the organization needs to maintain Management Inventory Human Resource Information System(HRIS).

Forecasting the External HR supply:

The firms can’t always get all the employees they need from their current staff and some time they just don’t want to. So, forecasting the availability of outside supply is extremely important in human resource planning. Because of the need for continuous and adequate staffing, every enterprise depends on the quality and quantity of human resources external to it.

Practices in the Bank:

The bank follows most of steps of HR planning i.e. integrate HR planning with corporate planning, assessment of internal HR capabilities and so on. Although they do not follow scatter plot and trend analysis, but they follow ratio analysis for forecasting future HR needs.

 

Recruitment and Selection Procedure of Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Limited

Introduction:

Human Resource management involves all management decisions and practices that directly affect or influence the person or human resources who work for the organization. In recent years increased attention has been devoted to how organizations manage human resources. This increased attention comes from the realization that an organization’s employees enable organization to achieve its goal and management of this human resource is critical to an organization’s success. The presence of human being is no new invention but identifying them as a resource in a more formal way has been made in the recent days. The history of HRM can be characterized as moving through four phases as craft system, scientific management system, the human resource relationship approach and the current organizational science such as human resource approach.

The company considers human resource as an integral part of corporate management for higher productivity. Company follows a dedicated policy for recruitment, training and development, motivating, organizing and retaining and maintaining the existing human resources on the basis of quality education, training and operating experiences.

An organization is nothing without human resource. Human resource department is concerned with the “people” dimension in management. Since every organization is made up of people, acquiring their services, developing their skills, motivating them to high levels of performance, are essential to achieving organizational objectives and ensuring that they continue to maintain commitment to the organization.

Historical Background:

The need for efficient Human Resources was appreciated by Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Limited   Management long back in 1994 when EXIM Bank -a finance company formed by the sponsors in the private sector at the initiative of the Government —was converted into a full-fledged commercial bank. It was felt that definite policies in this regard are required. The bank, therefore, Strived for appropriate policies in the area of Human Resource in the past several Years. As a result, certain policies have, in the process, historically evolved. Though these policies have been revised, amended and modified suitably from time to time, yet it was felt that the present policies require drastic changes in view of the wide ranging changes in the sector.

Responsibility of HR Management:

Human Resources Division of Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Limited    will be responsible for management of human resources of the Bank. Human Resource Management comprises the fowling 4 (four) basic function:

  • Staffing
  • Training and Development
  • Motivation and
  • Maintenance

Definition of Recruitment:

The quality of an organization’s human resources depends on the quality of its recruits. Recruit is the process of finding and attracting capable applicants for employment. The process begins when new recruits are sought and ends when their applicants are submitted. The result is a pool of applicants from which new employees are selected.

Managers become involved because they want the best people they can get, and they often know about places where appropriate  applicants can be found.

The HR plan can be especially helpful because it shows the recruiter both present opening and those expected in the future.

 

Definition of Selection:

Although most employees do not use such an elaborate screening device, all employees put applicants through a selection process. The selection process is a series of specific steps used to decide which recruits should be hired. The process begins when recruits apply for employment and ends with the hiring decision.

Recruiting & selection are combined and called the employment function in many HR departments. In a large HR department, the employment function is the responsibility of the employment manager. In a smaller department, the HR manager handles these duties. Employment is often the primary reason for the department’s existence, since the selection process is central to the HR function.

 

Steps of Selection:

Step- 1 : Preliminary Reception-

A preliminary reception interview may be granted as a courtesy, and then the applicant appears in person. This “courtesy interview”, as it is often called, is a matter of good public relation. It also helps the department screen out obvious misfits and get information on these “drop-in” applicants.

Step- 2 : Employment Tests-

Employment tests are devices that assess the match between the applicants and job requirements. Some are paper-and-pencil tests; others are exercises that simulate work conditions. Tests are used more frequently for candidates for jobs that are paid by the our than for management openings because hourly jobs usually have a limited number of skills that are more easily tested.

Step- 3 : Selection Interview-

The selection interview is a formal, in-depth conversation conducted to evaluate an applicant’s acceptability. The interviewer seeks to answer three broad question:

Can the applicant do the job?

Will the applicant do the job?

How does the applicant compare with others who are being considered for the job?

Selection interview are the most widely used selection technique. Their popularity stems from their flexibility.

Step- 4 : References and  Background-

Credential distortion by applicants suggests that reference and background checks are important, especially when customers coworkers may be harmed by poor performance or illegal behavior. Research suggests that credential distortion occurs frequently.

Step- 5 : Medical Evaluation-

The selection process may include a medical evaluation of the applicant before the hiring decision is made. The medical evaluation may:

Entire the employer to lower health or life insurance rates for company-paid insurance.

Be required by state or local health officials, particularly in food-handling operations where communicable diseases are a danger.

Be useful to evaluate whether the applicant can handle the physical or mental stress of a job

Step- 6 : Supervisory Interview-

The ultimate responsibility for a newly hired worker’s success falls to the workers immediate supervisor. The supervisor is often able to evaluate the applicant’s technical abilities. When supervisors make the financial decision, the employment function provides a supervisor with the best prescreened applicants available. From those two or three applicants, the supervisor decides whom to hire.

Step-7 : Realistic Job-

Realistic job previews supplement the supervisory interview. A realistic job preview (RJP) shows the employee the job and setting before the hiring decision is made. Often this involves showing the candidate the type of work, equipment, working conditions involved. In some case an RJP is provided as part of the recruiting process to weed out inappropriate candidates. Not all companies use RJPs.

Step-8: Hiring Decision-

The HR department makes the final hiring decision. Hiring marks the end of the selection process, assuming that the candidate accepts the job offer. The hiring process involves more than just extending an offer. To maintain good public relations, employees should notify applicants who are not selected.
