Within your study group, discuss and determine the HR planning (workforce planning) implications arising from the following case studies. Then prepare your own responses:
(a) Your company wishes to recruit new trainee managers for the New Year. The program will begin in late January, and it is now October. You will require 26 trainees to be trained in a capital city for one year, after which they may be transferred to any of your stores within regional Australia and its capital cities.

At present you only have four staff but this tender will require 18 staff. There are critical shortages of staff trained in the specialist area you are providing services to, although there are plenty of accounting staff with general qualifications.
(c) Your staff morale is at an all time low. Staff just can’t seem to keep pace with the consistently high volumes of work they are required to deal with. When your business first opened, this level of work occurred once or twice a month and staff did what they needed to in order to meet tight deadlines, and usually took time in lieu during the next quiet period, but now you are dealing with this level of work on a daily basis.
