Scenario 1: Employee Engagement
A recent engagement survey in your large retail organisation, which includes head office staff and retail staff at local stores, has highlighted that the workforce (approx. 2,800 people) are relatively well engaged with their work, but not with the organisation. Explain possible reasons for this and what the HR and line management teams may do to address this.
Scenario 2: Leadership Development
You are a newly appointed HR Advisor in a medium sized, fast growing digital technology company. Senior managers have recognised that there is a need to develop future leaders across the business, to enable expansion. You have been asked to advise on how the organisation might develop the leadership skills of this professional workforce.
Scenario 3: Change Management
You are an HR Advisor working in a newly established Organisational Development team within a large university. The organisation has recently attempted the first part of a cultural change programme with limited success. As a new team you are considering how evidence-based HR practice might improve the next part of this programme, which includes the implementation of a new academic careers framework and requires staff to demonstrate more inter-disciplinary and collaborative behaviours. Your essay should include your considerations as a team, and recommendations for implementing this next phase of the change programme.
