The paper “ Twinkle Toes - Analyzing and Designing Jobsб Recruitment and Training Process for the Employees Process” is a breathtaking variant of the case study on human resources. Twinkle Toes is a daycare center owned by Jenny Carter, he has successfully run the business for some time now. Increasing demand for similar services has led Jenny to open a new center Twinkle Toes Two in another suburb of his town. At the center, Jenny employs an administrator, a cook, and a cleaner and several child workers. The ratio of child workers to children is 0.2 equivalent workers for each child below three years while that of child workers to children is 0.1 equivalent workers per child above five years.
From the fact that the business is successful, this can be taken as an optimal number of workers for efficient day to day operations. Originally while planning his human resource at twinkle one, Jenny had faced a number of problems and has decided to approach a human resource consultant to enable him, staff, the new center properly. Determining the Right Number of Employees at Twinkle Toes TwoHuman resource planning (HRP) plays a vital role in any business undertaking and it seeks to make sure the organizations are not understaffed or it has workers who are redundant or at some point during the organization's operation are idle, it seeks to eliminate the costs associated with it.
HRP in an organization deals with these two problems. It involves evaluating the business’ present and future numbers of employees that it needs in comparison with the resources it owns or has access to current and those it will envision it will get in the future (Walker 2001, pp. 67).
While staffing the new center Jenny should ensure that he maintains the equilibrium of demands to supply (Fitz-enz 1990, pp. 25-29). Twinkle Toes two should avoid a situation where it has excess staff and/or where the employees are not enough for efficient and effective operations at the center as both situations show weaknesses in the positioning strategy of the center.
