discuss the critical factors or issues you believe are influencing labor demand
This task in compulsory
Assessment Task: Case Study
Word Length: 2000 words
1 To develop knowledge of the important labor supply and demand concepts and demonstrate this knowledge in the assignment.
2 To apply knowledge of unit material in a real world context by linking relevant concepts to real world examples.
3 To learn to consistently integrate links (references/citations) of relevant unit material in a way that supports points 1 and 2 above. A failure to consistently cite unit material and readings will incur considerable penalties to the overall grade.
For this assignment focus on your existing organisation or an organisation you are very familiar with such as a well-known public or private sector organisation that would be accessible to complete the following tasks. Please contact the Unit Coordinator if you are having problems accessing an organisation urgently.
For assignment 1 students are expected to read and refer consistently to Cummings & Worley (2015) and readings by Freyens (2010); Luoma (2000); Nankervis et al. (2008); Roberts (2005); & Stone (2010) from eReserve. Additional readings are also available and useful for Assignment 1 and I would encourage you to refer to these as well if they are helpful for you. These include: Haighner et al. (2013); Dubra & Gulbe (2008); Burke (2011); Krama et al., (2011), and Prskawetz et al. (2008). In addition, material from the topic one notes and resources are considered critical. NB. Your textbook does not specifically refer to Human Resources Planning, however, the sections throughout the textbook devoted to planning and strategy should be useful to add more detail where required.
1 For your chosen organisation, discuss the critical factors or issues you believe are influencing labor demand (your readings are essential). In other words, what are the workforce changes and how do they impact on existing and future jobs? (40% of assignment). Important here to link explicitly to the models that are used for labor demand forecasting in your unit material. You must refer to these models and show how they have assisted your arguments.
2 For your chosen organisation, discuss the critical factors or issues that are influencing labor supply (your readings are essential). In other words, what challenges does the organisation face in locating, attracting and hiring a labor force over the next five (5) years minimum? (40% of assignment).
