Abstract

The paper traces and evaluates the application of manpower planning techniques to two selected areas of Social Services provision (residential care for the elderly, and fieldwork) against the particular environmental considerations of a U.K. City. The result of participant observation by a multi-disciplinary team in these complex behavioural areas, in terms of service alternatives and their manpower implications, and integration of the environmental considerations together with individual factors into generalised and dynamic models for staffing level predictions are discussed, followed by implementation methods to ameliorate particular undesirable manpower supply features. Shortcomings and areas of further research are also set out.
