Abstract

This study assessed the effectiveness of human resources planning in International Non-governmental organisations particularly BBC Media Action which is located in Dar es Salaam city. Two problems were highlighted where BBC was faced with employee turnover and difficulty in getting required technical skills where in 2013/2015 14 employees out of 43 resigned which is 36%. The study had reviewed several literatures were two theories were referred. The empirical study was also done to cross check how much has been studied in the World, Africa and Tanzania in particular concerning the subject matter. The study adopted a cross-sectional research design where the purposive sampling was used to select 84 staff for interviews. The data were analysed by using SPSS computer software through the descriptive analysis which involved computation of frequencies and percentages and the results are presented in form of tables, graphs and charts. The findings from the study reveal that despite the HR planning policy is documented in the HR manual, there still some challenges in implementing of policy especially when it comes to recruitment of technical personnel. Also lack of policy on motivational is one of the factors with which hinders the HRP reliability. The study also finds that senior managers and supervisors at BBC Media Action had adequate capacity to manage workforce. Furthermore, the study established that funding adequacy is not a constraint at BBC Media Action Tanzania. This study proposes that BBC Media Action employees must adhere to its Human Resources Manual which has Human Resources Policy and the management must strictly ensure that policies and procedures are developed and implemented in a professional manner.
