MGT501 - Human Resource Management
Assignment 01 Non Graded
Due Dtae 09-12-2013
The given case is about the importance of human resource planning and shortage of workers. Students need to identify the appropriate strategy or strategies applicable in this case. First question is based on the shortage of workers that how this issue can be overcome. Second question revolves around on the benefits of effective human resource planning. In both questions, students have to align their descriptions with the case for proper justification.
Last year from Abu Dhabi, I visited my hometown in Lower Punjab where I got the opportunity to meet one of my friends who works in Dubai. Filled with irritation, he explained me that how he is facing a delay in construction of his house. When we both reached to talk to the contractor, he informed that there is an immense shortage of workers. My friend also told me that sometimes he had to bring few workers on his own vehicle from other distant areas for continuation of construction work.
My friend was in pain due to this issue. Basically the whole town was bearing this problem and it was the famous saying over there that in order to build a house here you need good networking with the house contractors rather lots of money. In our town, most people like us had migrated to Arab countries for good earning which now has caused an extreme shortage of workers. Besides this, even in recent years when industries were started up in this city, there is still a shortage of workers.
Few days back, I got a chance to meet one of my relatives who is working in a factory. He illuminated me that the factory does not forecast that how many workers they would need in the coming times. He also identified that even such gaps are not addressed in factory’s meetings and the management does not take any interest. Compensation system is not being reviewed and so they are unaware regarding the market pay levels which have forced the workers to move abroad for a better salary. I was also amazed to hear that the factory invites workers from other cities as well but the workers leave once they do not get the appropriate pay.
After this conversation, I analyzed that there must be a proper channel for addressing the labor issues and their forecasting which is badly missing right now. But it is never too late; I believe the time has come to change this image of migrating to other countries and building up their economies by sacrificing our own.
1.Keeping in view the above scenario, according to you, what measures can be taken to address the issue of shortage of workers in the city?
2.How effective human resource planning can a bridge the gaps in the factory?
