Employer Manpower Planning and Forecasting.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
This monograph summarizes a study of employer activities in regard to manpower planning and forecasting. While the study did not purport to cover a representative sample of firms, it did identify approaches used by various businesses within the state of Minnesota. The findings of the study are supplemented by bibliographical materials which will assist in making private manpower planning more adequate. Also, an attempt has been made to: (1) generalize from the survey findings, (2) provide case examples, (3) analyze problems encountered in planning, and (4) develop some basic guidelines for manpower planning by individual firms. Major sections of the monograph are: (1) The Character of Manpower Planning ad Forecasting, (2) Forecasting Techniques: A Review and A Model, (3) The Minnesota Forecast Survey, (4) Case Examples From the Minnesota Survey, (5) Problems and Guidelines for Micro Manpower Planning, and (6) Research Needs. A selected bibliography of 48 items on manpower planning and forecasting in the firm is included. (Author/JS)
