Annual human resources operating plan

Annual Human Resources Operating Plan

The strategic plan of a company or organization drives the writing of the operating plans of every department, and once written, based on that strategic plan,  operating plans drive the direction of each department’s planned work in supporting their organization while maintaining alignment with the organization’s mission, vision, and its business strategies.

This week you begin finalizing an Annual Human Resources Operating Plan for the organization you chose in Week 1, pulling in content already written in previous assignments. The whole purpose is to write academic introductions using your references provided in this course, for every single section and creating your full Reference page required in Section 7. Refer to and use the Week 7 Template that has been modified to fit this week’s work.

Access the modified Template template for this week in this week’s Learning Resources. The sequence and numbering of Key Section Headings cannot be altered. On the other hand, the template contains detailed instructions for each section, which, after reading, you should delete all these prompts and instructions.


Also included in the Learning Resources is a flowchart that gives you a visual representation of an Annual Human Resources Operating Plan, which provides context for your work. 

Flow Chart:


To complete this Assignment, populate EACH SECTION HEADING (1-6) of the modified Annual Human Resources Operating Plan for the Human Resource Department/Division template creating an academic introduction that draws upon your assigned/academic readings in this course to create context for any reader of this plan.

Complete the following:

•Based on the research you have done and are doing on the organization you selected in Week 1, together with academic content and citations from assigned academic readings and content from throughout this course, or this program, write an introduction for each Key Section (1-6 Section Headings) of the modified template and include your initial content for each section, which will create your final References list. **The rest of the plan is your content that YOU write in Week 7 and is THE HR plan.

•Next, do the same Select Section Sub-headings: 1.1, 1.2, 4.2, and 5.1, 5.2, 5.3.

This draft completes much of the Project, leading you directly to focusing on Section 4 HR Strategies and the 6-7 Key Action Steps required for each strategy. The strategies and actions steps are the CORE of any plan, and this is where your wisdom and understanding of your HR program really is demonstrated. Next, you write Section 5, Implementation, planning the implementation of the AHRP, and Section 6, Measurement, which lays out the 3 types of HR metrics and how to report them (and to whom).
