ary and search
online. Alternatively, you can just ask your workshop leader for advice.








2. What are the expectations?

You need to conduct a
ief policy analysis, which will underpin your policy. You are
expected to research widely to identify examples of relevant policies and journal articles.
You need to use a minimum of ten academic, peer-reviewed journal articles to support
your policy. All reference material must be appropriately cited in the text of your
assignment. If you choose to base your policy on a pre-existing one, you need to identify
and reference this policy.

Follow the style guidelines for the Academy of Management Journal.

Note that Wikipedia and similar websites are NOT acceptable sources for this
assignment. Only scientific studies (reported in academic journal articles), commentaries
y eminent academics or Government Reports should be used.

It is essential that your assignment is written in a neat, professional, and engaging
manner. Convey your ideas clearly and concisely, and use appropriate transitions
etween the different sections of the assignment. Finally, and importantly, please be
sure to check your assignment for spelling, grammar and punctuation before submission.













PART 1 – Policy Analysis (800 words)


As a guide, you may focus on some of the following issues (or other similar issues) in the Policy
Analysis section.

1. Internal & External issues analysis
Internal issues refer to:
 Organisational objectives, business strategic choice, HR needs and HR strategies,
 Organisation culture and its approaches (management values) to managing employees,
 Ethical treatment of employees (i.e. organisational justice),
 Ethical business practices (decision-making),
 Approaches to corporate social responsibility

External issues refer to the contextual factors (external environment) that influence policy.
These contextual factors include:
 Law (industrial relations, anti-discrimination, occupational safety and health, and
privacy)
 Government policy (employment, education and training, immigration & citizenship,
industrial relations)
 Economic conditions (economic conditions in good times and bad times)
 Societal values & issues (prevailing values and preferences shared by stakeholders
outside the organisation)


2. High priority issues
Among the above-mentioned internal and external issues, identify one or more issues that
need to be addressed in the policy that you are developing.

3. Policy problem
If you choose to review and rewrite an existing HR policy, you need to point out what the
problems are with the existing policy and why changes in the policy are necessary.



PART 2 – Policy Development

Write a policy on your chosen topic.
The following information and sections should be included in your policy.
1. Overview
A
ief description of the intent and rationale of the policy.
2. Scope
Who are covered in the policy?
Identify to which parties in the organisation or to which particular situations the policy applies.
Are there situations where it might apply generally across the organisation?
3. Policy Statement
This should be a concise and formal statement of the principal objectives of the policy. It should
provide a framework for mandatory principles (management philosophies and principles) to be
incorporated in the related procedures.
4. Legislation
This section should discuss laws and legal obligations that have direct or indirect consequences
on the policy, e.g., EEO, OHS, Discriminatory laws, privacy, etc.
5. Process
Consider the processes (activities) that are included in the policy and undertaken by involved
parties in order to effectively achieve the objectives of the policy.
(For this assignment, you will present the necessary processes in a one-page flowchart or
diagram, NOT in words).
6. Accountabilities
The hierarchical roles and authorities that are involved in the development, approval,
implementation, and engagement of end-users of the policy, for example:
 Development & drafting - HRM manager,
 Approval - CEO in conjunction with board members,
 Implementation - Line managers or concerned line managers,
 End-users - Employees or concerned employees
7. Evaluation Measures
Consider means to monitor and measure the effectiveness of the policy.
References
A minimum of ten academic, peer-reviewed journal articles.
