This includes the specialist areas of recruitment, personnel development, performance appraisal, payroll accounting, employee retention and motivation. Personnel controlling aims to increase the efficiency and performance of human resources in order to achieve the company's goals.

Staff requirements planning

Personnel requirements planning plays a key role in personnel controlling. As part of this process, the future personnel requirements of a company are analyzed to ensure that the right personnel with the required skills are available at the right time. This includes examining fluctuation rates, demographic trends, technological progress and other factors influencing personnel requirements. Companies can avoid bottlenecks and reduce overcapacity through effective workforce planning.

Employee assessment

Personnel controlling also focuses heavily on the regular evaluation of employee performance. It is possible to identify employees' strengths and weaknesses through performance appraisals. This enables companies to take targeted measures to develop their employees and eliminate performance deficits. Employee appraisals also serve as a basis for personnel decisions such as promotions, salary increases and further training measures.

Salary management

The planning, administration and control of a company's salary and remuneration systems are part of salary management. As part of personnel controlling, salary structures are designed to strengthen the company's objectives and increase employee motivation. By regularly comparing and analyzing salaries, companies ensure that their salary practices are competitive and in line with industry standards. Transparent and fair salary management promotes employee satisfaction and loyalty.

Compliance and reporting

Compliance plays a crucial role in the area of personnel controlling. It is important that companies ensure that their HR-related processes and measures comply with legal regulations and internal guidelines. These include data protection regulations, working time laws, equal treatment regulations and other labor law regulations. Reporting is of great importance in personnel controlling. Companies can monitor the effectiveness of their HR-related measures, identify potential for improvement and make informed decisions by regularly creating reports and using key figures.
