Workforce Allocation :
As the name indicates, workforce allocation is the process to allocate or assign the employees in the various departments of the organization, according to their skills and capabilities. Imagine how bad the result would be if a person who is good in sales is given to handle the HR department?

In order to let the organization perform well with all its defined objectives and targets, it is important that the organization has all its employees allocated to the right department. If there occurs any mistake in properly allocating the employees in the organization, it will not only ruin the reputation of the company but will come in the way of the personal growth of the employee. It sometimes creates a lifelong complexity in the employee’s personality due to which they start believing that they cannot perform their assigned duties effectively. Only a very few people understand that there can be the fault that is assigned and allocated to the wrong department contradicting to their skill sets.
