Abstract: This study examines workforce planning on organizational performance in two private manufacturing companies at Apapa area of Lagos State. This study adopted a survey research design in which sample size determination table was used to choose 300 copies of the questionnaire administered, out of which 166 were recovered and used for data analysis, representing 55 per cent of the copies of the questionnaire recovered. The data collected were analysed through the descriptive and inferential method, and both Pearson’s moment correlation and regression analysis were used in testing the stated hypotheses. The findings show workforce planning has an influence on organizational performance. The study recommends that a there is a need for the government to have an economic blueprint that will help manufacturing sector to perform better than the contribution it is making now and also ensure that irrespective of the economic contraction or recession the manufacturing sector is facing, it should get a business direction right and avoid undesirable costs that are associated with high staff turnover, poor performance and dissatisfied workers.
