Many hospitals have elegant & elaborate strategic plans, but, they often do not have supporting HR strategies to ensure that the overall corporate plan can be implemented. But, strategies don’t fail, people do. Despite this fact, the healthcare industry as a whole spends less than half the amount that other industries are spending on human resources management. One reason for healthcare’s reliance on an extensive workforce is that it is not possible to produce a “service” and store it for later consumption. In healthcare, the production of the service that is purchased and the consumption of that service occur simultaneously. After recruitment, hospitals like any other industry prefer to have optimum output from employees for continuous delivery of service. Hindrances are absenteeism and turnover. Hence, an extensive study on manpower planning in a medical college teaching hospital was planned with the main objective of observing the utilization of existing manpower in terms of number of hours that they have spent in performing the duties, reasons for non-deliverance of work & understanding the reasons for turnover. Time & Motion Study was used for the radiographers to study their productivity at this place & compared with standards to see their conformance. The result was in order to confirm to the standards the existing number of employees were high in number, but, in terms of their productivity they were menacingly less. The number of X-ray determinations by radiographer is less than 15 per day. Hence, there was no need to enhance the number of employees in the department even though the hospital increases its bed strength by another 500 beds.
