Manpower models play a vital role in Human Resource Management. This paper develops and analyses a manpower model with non-stationary recruitment process. Here the time dependent recruitment is characterized by Duane process. The Duane process includes the Poisson process and non-homogeneous Poisson process as particular cases for specific values of the parameters. It is also assumed that the promotion or leaving process follows Poisson process. Using the difference differential equations and the joint probability generating function we derive the number of employees in the organization. The characteristics of the model such as the average number of employees in the organization, the average duration of stay of an employee, the variance of the number of employees in the grade and the coefficient of variation of an employee in the organization are obtained explicitly. The sensitivity analysis of the model reveals that the Duane recruitment process has a great influence on the characteristics of manpower systems. A comparative study of the proposed model with that of Poisson recruitment shows that the proposed model predicts the system characteristics more closely to reality.
