Organisational capacity requirements generally concern your ability to match personnel needs against productivity targets. It all boils down to workflow analysis and human resource capacity planning. You should be able to determine the number of workers that you need to achieve your current output targets and predict future needs. It is equally important to have a clear picture of the mix of skills that your employees will need to optimise the performance of their duties and responsibilities. This calls for analytical approaches to staffing decisions and productivity reviews.
Employee engagement perspectives
The determination of organisational capacity requirements aids the development of a framework for promoting employee engagement in your organisation. Indeed, employee engagement must measure up to the expected standards in order to optimise the production capacity of your workforce. This is particularly important when you consider the fact that there are always gaps in employee engagement, with a past Gallup report revealing that only 13 per cent of the global workforce is engaged, while as many as 63 per cent of employees are not engaged.
When determining your organisational capacity requirements, it is advisable to conduct a workflow analysis to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. A workflow analysis is a useful procedure for setting the benchmarks against which you will establish realistic productivity targets, allocate duties, schedule tasks, eliminate gaps, and monitor efficiency.
Monitoring and evaluation
Personnel capacity planning objectives are best achieved through the continuous monitoring and automation of HR management programs. It is always important to implement evaluation mechanisms for tracking performance and detecting weaknesses. You can deploy analytical instruments, such as a capacity planner, to identify and weed out issues that impede productivity because of work experience, professional qualifications, skills and motivation.
