What are the differences and similarities between Manpower Planning and traditional human resource planning?
Manpower planning is a procedure or tool for forecasting the number of workers a company will need in future years. It is a traditional function of a human resources department. If you are referring to the company Manpower Planning, then the difference would be external planning as opposed to internal HR planning. You’d essentially be outsouring the job to someone else. The methods of forecasting, whether done by an independent analyst at Manpower or an internal HR manager, are basically the same.
