Employment or Personnel Planning: The process of deciding what positions the firm will have to fill, and how to fill them. 4

5 © Pearson Education 2012 5 What to Forecast? - Overall personnel needs. - The supply of inside candidates. - The supply of outside candidates.

6 © Pearson Education 2012 1.Outside recruiting: Managers look outside the firm for people who have not worked at the firm before. Managers advertise in newspapers, hold open houses, recruit at universities, and on the Internet. External recruitment is difficult since many new jobs have specific skill needs. A multi-prong approach to external recruiting works best. 6
