Recent researches conducted by independent agencies in the USA showed that almost half of small-sized and mid-sized enterprises face the problem of non-optimal allocation of employees due to improper organization of staff planning process . This problem results in insufficient and incomplete development of HR management plan which is the basis for managing employees and assigning working hours. Often the problem becomes more aggravated when the enterprises do not use special software to manage employees and allocate working hours efficiently. In this context, staff planning is the primary process on which the senior management of the enterprises should be focused first of all. And such software should be used to simplify this process and make it more efficient.

The process
Definition : HR planning is a process aimed at developing strategies and policies that match supply of employees to availability of jobs at organizational or departmental level. It involves reviewing available human resources, identifying future requirements, and taking steps to ensure that supply of employees meets current demand. That process shouldn't be considered from just one angle, as it is a complex system. Such a system can be described as a three-step process:

  • Assessing employee requirements – Considering jobs that an organization needs to do, managers collect information to identify requirements as to existing employees and applicants.
  • Scheduling working hours – Managers create schedules for each work shift and identify working time required to accomplish jobs.
  • Managing working hours – Managers track and monitor working hours to avoid productivity losses, reduce idle time, and delegate jobs in case of necessity.

The software
To run the three-step process, staff planning software is required. Such software is a solution that managers can use to create a HR management plan , use templates , and keep all information about the process in a single place (a database). An example of such software is VIP Task Manager.

VIP Task Manager uses a client-server platform and allows keeping information about staff rosters and job assignments in a single database. The software has the following staff planning tools :
