Your Task

class activity and then using that framework (plan) create an individual report based on the
organisation’s/companies organisational performance relating to: organisational/workforce performance
and cultural change.
Assessment Description
PART A (In-Class for both Face-to-Face and Online Students Draft Report Framework)
In Week 3/4 during class, groups (of 4 students) will be formed and the group will need to select an
Australian Publicly listed company/organisation from one of the following industries: Tourism, Media and
Entertainment, Healthcare, Mining, Agriculture and Manufacturing. The list of companies are available via
the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). You can find the list of companies at https:
www.asx.com.au/.
You should confirm your choice with your Facilitator before commencing your Assessment
As part of the in-class activities, you will develop a group draft report framework (that is approved by your
Facilitator) to assist you in preparing your individual report. Attendance is compulsory for this in-class part
of the assessment (face-to-face and online). Each student will individually submit a copy of their group
framework via Moodle and their individual report via Turnitin.
PART B. (Individual)
By looking at the organisation/company’s website, business articles and Annual Reports, you will be able
to see whether it is possible to access enough information about its organisational practices to address
the following:
1. Identify how your selected organisation/company is seeking to improve the performance of its
workforce? Using at least TWO performance related initiatives discuss the ways that the
organisation/company might measure the success of the initiatives?
2. Identify the key components of the “corporate culture” of your selected organisation/company and
using at least TWO culture-based initiatives discuss how they are trying to improve its culture and
how they might measure the success of the initiatives?
The group-work in-class component (conducted face-to-face or online) will provide you with an opportunity
to assess your choice of organisation/company and its Human Resource practices.
