Human resource planning is important because it ensures an organization that they have the right number and kind of people, at the right place, at the right time, in order to effectively and efficiently achieve the organization’s overall objectives.   Proper human resource planning can determine future needs for human resources; provide control measures to ensure that necessary resources are available as and when required; anticipate redundancies, reduce regrettable attrition, and encourage desirable attrition; and forecast future skill requirements to serve as a basis for training and development programs.
