Seasonal labour impact work force planning as company do not get workers all over the year (Earl, Taylor and McLoughlin, 2017). Lack of labour highly impacts the organisation's work force planning. Change in climate also make the labour unavailability.
Global financial crisis: GFC highly impact work force planning or he organisation because financial crisis decreases the consumer speedings on buying products. Due to this reason organisation do not get enough funds to pay to the employees (Almeida and Fernando, 2017). So organisation remains unable in planning work force.
