This highly practical book examines the implications for organizations of rapid business change and the constant changes in manpower. The Handbook of Human Resource Planning presents a systematic approach for:. * Determining the staff requirements of the business. * Analysing the flows and current skills of existing employees. * Formulating strategies to acquire and develop skills for tomorrow from new and existing staff. McBeath shows how an awareness of the scale and implications of changing requirements enable realistic and flexible strategies to be developed for the most effective and powerful use of people. The book also reveals how it is important to recognize that people provide the only competitive edge, and that planning the provision of future manpower is vital to senior management and human resource professionals in any organization.
