Pick an organisation of your choice. This may be one that you are currently working in, or one that you have been a part of in the past. Alternatively, it could be an organisation that you have a particular interest in. The organisation may be new or old, large or small, profit or not-for-profit. It may be domiciled in Australia, but selecting an overseas or global organisation is acceptable. However, whichever you choose, it is important that you are able to get information on employee engagement and people metrics.
You are required to research the organisation so that you have a sound understanding of the people and human resource practices that are in place. This may be via internet sources or preferably by interviewing staff within the organisation that you have chosen.
You are required to complete the following task:
Write a report that assesses an organisation’s people practices and employee engagement levels and recommend a number of initiatives that aim to improve employee engagement. Your report should be based on appropriate theory and research.
The purpose of the assessment is to apply what you have learned about people, human resources and organisations to your selected organisation and make some clear recommendations of HR initiatives that you believe will increase employee engagement within the organisation.
Your report should include
A contents page (an executive summary is not required).
A clear introduction defining scope.
An overview of the organisation chosen.
The identification and discussion of the organisation’s business strategy.
An evaluation of the people and HR practices that exist within the organisation.
An overview and analysis of the current state of employee engagement that exists in the
organisation, which is based on a sound theoretical description of what employee engagement actually is.
A structured plan of initiatives that you believe will increase employee engagement over time.
For each initiative, you should specifically outline:
o What the initiative is and why you have chosen it.
o What you propose should be done, substantiated by sound rationale and theory. o What you expect the impact to be and why, substantiated by sound rationale and theory
A clear conclusion that summarises the key recommendations in the report.
You should include a minimum of 15 references. At least 8 of these should be academic journals. The rest can be textbooks and appropriate websites.
You should adopt the Harvard referencing convention throughout your report as well as in the reference list at the end.
It is recommended that you use the structure outlined above and adopt sub-headings based on each bullet point.
The attached marking rubrics guide the marker when awarding marks for your report. You should review your paper in line with this to ensure there is nothing you have missed.
It is important to check your similarity in turnitin. All sentences highlighted must be either paraphrased in your own words or put in quotes and referenced accordingly. You should be aiming for as low a similarity score as you can. Similarity highlighted in a contents page, reference list or appendices is nothing to be concerned about.
Some examples of how consulting firms address the engagement issues are given below for your information. You should not use these in your own report.
