Human resource management organisation's goal must be achieved by regulating employee behaviour through a restraint system. We conduct quantitative research on employee behaviour under organisational constraints, which is an essential means to ensure the organisation's healthy and stable development. The employees themselves adapt to the organisational goals, obey the organisation's constraint system and allocate their resources so that there is less research on optimising their behaviour. This article briefly reviews the research and application of economic theory, organisational behaviour, human resource management and other aspects of optimising employee resource allocation behaviour. The thesis defines organisational resources and divides them into three types. Based on the constraint system, we turn the organisation's control, requirements or incentives on employee behaviour into above or below employee operating constraints; we believe that the constraint system has the characteristics of discrete and hanging river effects, and we have obtained an evaluation. Two algorithms of the organisational constraint system. The article discusses employee resources and behaviours. At the same time, it attempts to construct a quantitative model based on the employee's multi-objective, nonlinear, continuous and discrete constraints, on the allocation of resources and behaviour optimisation and on the employee's adaptation to the organisational constraints. Under the premise of optimisation, several situations in which the model solves the optimal solution are studied. The research found that this article can fill the gaps in employees’ self-adaptation to organisational goals and behaviour optimisation quantitative models.

The organisation regulates the behaviour of employees through a restraint system to achieve organisational goals. The employees adapt to the organisation's goals, obey the organisation's constraint system and allocate their resources to optimise their behaviour, and in this manner the best results can be obtained. Research in this area can see the penetration of economics research and be found in the category of individual behaviour optimisation in organisational behaviour and personal career planning in human resource management. Of course, all these are inseparable from the strong support of psychology, and the attempt of mathematical model description is also indispensable . From the perspective of the research and application of individual behaviour optimisation in the field of human resource management, most of the issues involved are considered from the perspective of managers, and employees are passive; there are more qualitative researches and fewer combined qualitative and quantitative studies; further, there is more business management, and less proactive career planning by employees.
This article delves into the concepts of organisational resources, constraint system, employee behaviour, employee resources, etc., and gives corresponding functional expressions to the discussion's factors. From the perspective of individual employees, taking into account the continuity of employee behaviour and the constraint system's discreteness, we tried to construct a multi-objective nonlinear employee under organisational constraints, and at the same time, a resource allocation optimisation model with continuous and discrete constraints . And on the premise of maximising the benefits of employees, we researched the optimisation of the model.
The organisation's constraint system refers to an orderly set of discrete points constructed under the existing organisational resources and according to the needs of business processes to ensure the effective operation of the organisation and to regulate the continuous behaviour of employees, which is composed of requirements, control, incentives and other indicators.
For organisations, the restraint system is mainly used by managers to regulate employee behaviour under existing organisational resources so that employee behaviour can achieve a particular effect. The restraint system is divided into requirements, control and incentives for all employees, and the behaviour of employees in specific positions is based on the standards of the system . Above, below, and the above operation and the above operation's constant control can be transformed into above and below requirements or incentives. We assume that through the organisation's constraint system, there is a total of
The organisational constraint system requires employees to achieve particular effects of the function group, and its geometric figure is an ordered set of discrete points in a dimensional space. For example, in
As employees become familiar with the restraint system, employees gradually become ‘smart’, and thus the system no longer possesses sufficiently the capability to restrain employees’ behaviour; with the organisation's development, technical issues are becoming more and more complex, and human coordination is becoming more and more difficult. To make the organisation's operation more effective, it is necessary to produce new management regulations continuously . The more perfect the regulations, the larger the constraint system will be, and it is expected to eventually become an inverted pyramid. The bottom of the pyramid is a specific matter that needs to be dealt with during the organisation's operation. At the same time, the top is a constraint system composed of various management rules and regulations. The top of the pyramid has a trend of continuous expansion. As reflected in the organisational constraint system, the discreteness of these abstract functions of operational effects is weakened and gradually becomes ‘more continuous’.
In a narrow sense, organisational resources are all quantifiable, tangible materials that can support organisational activities to achieve specific goals.
For example: for a productive organisation, front-line production workers, engineering and technical personnel, management personnel, capital, production equipment, workshops, buildings, raw materials, administrative office equipment, etc., are organisational resources. Figure 1 shows the system dynamics model between organisational resources and management efficiency.
Organisational resources can be divided into three categories according to their usage. The first category is resources allocated to specific employees; the second category is organisational resources that some specific employees cannot use; and the third category is outside-organisational resources. Organisations where employees can only use the first type of resources are called closed organisational systems; organisations where employees can use all types of resources except for the third type are called internally open organisational systems; and organisations that can use all three types of resources are called open organisational systems.
The thesis has
Employee resources include employees’ resources and resources allocated by the organisation. Own resources include factors such as the time that employees can invest, some simple self-owned tools, the professional knowledge accumulated by employees in long-term work, etc.; organisational rationing resources are resources allocated to employees in a specific position to enable them to complete tasks. Figure 2 shows the system dynamics model of employee resources and behaviour.
We suppose that in addition to the rationed resources in the organisation resources, there are
Some scholars believe that the causes of employee behaviour in an organisation are very complicated. What is the reason for determining it? There are very complicated researches in psychology. An employee's behaviour is related to economic status, quality, physical state, emotion, family members, society and organisation. Employees’ normal behaviour refers to the behaviour that employees exhibit that meets the requirements of managers and conforms to the restraint system, which is conducive to the realisation of organisational goals . The behaviour of employees is continuous and continuous. Abnormal behaviour refers to employees’ behaviour deviating from the organisation's goals, violating the requirements of the restraint system, and harming the interests of the organisation. It can be said that the continuity of employee behaviour, the discreteness of the restraint system, the hysteresis of the influence of the restraint system on employee behaviour and the hanging effect of the restraint system are the profound foundations for employees to produce abnormal behaviours.
Under the organisational constraints, based on the premise of employees’ best interests, the following ‘smart principles’ can be set for employees’ behaviour. ‘Smart Principle.’ If the constraints of the organisation require employees to operate above a particular effect, the employees must choose to operate on the minimum requirement to achieve this effect; if the constraints of the organisation require employees to operate under a particular effect, the employees must choose to operate under a particular effect. Run-on the highest requirements to achieve this effect.
The restraint system's effect on employee behaviour can be evaluated by the total benefits obtained by the organisation to restrain employee behaviour. Two evaluation methods are discussed here, pre-algorithm and post-algorithm. The algorithm before the event has errors, and the algorithm after the event is more accurate . Now we give an example. For convenience, the discussion is only on the two-dimensional plane, and the upward curve of employee behaviour and restraint system requirements for employees are, respectively,
Beforehand algorithm. After the organisational constraint system is given, the employee's behaviour has not yet occurred . Therefore, by constraining the employee's behaviour, the organisation's total benefits can be divided into two parts: discrete points and non-discrete points. When employees happen to meet the constraint requirements, the discrete point benefit is
After the fact algorithm. Since the employee's behaviour has occurred after the constraint system is given, the exact value of the total benefit obtained by the organisation is given by:
The general planning model is very closely related to real problems. For example, in the natural environment, people have ideals. Since the expectations are unlimited and the environment is limited, it is necessary to use specific methods to find the combination of existing resources to achieve the best expectations . The general abstract function programming model is as follows:
Objectives and Evaluation Criteria Group –
Constraint group –
The organisation, constraint system, employee behaviour, etc., discussed in this article are abstract, and so only abstract models can be established. The model based on the optimisation of employee resource allocation behaviour under the constraint system is as follows:
In a closed organisational system, the optimal solution of Model 1 is theoretically the optimal solution obtained by solving the multi-objective nonlinear programming optimisation model. In reality, there will be a phenomenon that the actual optimal solution under Model 1 is far greater than its theoretical optimal solution . This phenomenon can be explained to a certain extent by the open and internal open organisation system introduced in the previous section. We know that in a closed organisational system, resources are conserved, while in the open and internally open organisational systems, since employees can deliberately occupy resources inside and outside the organisation based on their subjectivity, the feasible domain of Model 1 is enlarged, resulting in the upper limit of the objective function value becoming enlarged or the lower limit becoming reduced .
To discuss the optimal solution of Model 1, we do not consider the (c), (d), (e), (f) constraint groups in Model 1 and get Model 2.
Theorem 6 selects the sub-optimal solution
This article presents an abstract mathematical model for optimising employee resource allocation and discusses the model's optimisation. The model considers the continuity of employee behaviour and the discrete nature of the constraint system. The hysteresis of the restraint system's influence on employee behaviour, the hanging river effect of the restraint system and the organisation's openness caused the variation of the model and the optimal solution, which were not discussed. Additionally, from the perspective of employees adapting to organisational goals, there are still many issues in employee resource optimisation worthy of in-depth study.
