A Quantitative Analysis About Optimization of Number of Employees and Rebalancing Workload
In an organization, the workload of the employees is very important in terms of efficiency and motivation toward work. Workloads must be at the same level as employees can achieve.
In the study, a large faculty of one of Turkey’s leading universities was selected as a pilot. There are 25 different business units and 92 employees in the faculty. AHP and LP are preferred as models. With AHP, utility values of employees in each job type are calculated separately for 25 job types. The obtained utility values are assigned as the objective function coefficients of the decision variables of the LP model. Three different LP models were obtained and solved to obtain optimal workload values. According to the results of three different models, the manager will be able to complete the missing workloads of the employees from different units.
