As some students have misunderstood some of the requirement of the unit, clarification is required.
The essence of the assessment is that the CEO/MD (the marker), has just joined the organisation and needs detail of two key workforce planning areas: 1. current workforce planning issues, and, 2. how the organisational staffing needs to respond to the inevitable required change in staffing requirements in the next one to two years.
The business/case study You are encouraged to utilise your own organisation, if it is of substantial size. ie, over 50 persons. If your organisation is not of that size, you have the option of using the Star Industries case study or visualise that your organisation is much larger than it actually is. It is also of benefit if your organisation needs to undergo staffing changes in the next year (most do, in these days of constant change). Even if it does not appear to require significant change, you could visualise that the organisation is indeed undergoing major expansion (or contraction) and/or is offering new product or technology and deleting old product/technology.
While the assessment works best in a for profit scenario, if can also be applied in not-for-profit and government enterprises. In all cases, you need to assume that the CEO has given you some freedoms in relation to what you can recommend.
I do not want you to present your organisation (or Star) as a best practice organisation nor promote the organisation unless it is a recognised ‘employer of choice’. So a critical analysis is required not just plaudits of how wonderful the organisation is.
Supply of labour – look up supply of labour in the industry in focus, either your own or Star. Overall supply can be gleaned from www.abs.gov.au. The supply of labour is persons over 15 years who are available to work in your industry and have the necessary skills to do the jobs that your industry and organisation require. It is necessary to understand where an organisation can get its labour from. You can look at employment by state or even district. Also check out www.joboutlook.gov.au. So for Star Industries, you could go to Production Managers, with employment (demand) expected to decline. But unemployment is a low 2%, thus an organisation would need to work hard to find a suitable prospect as a supply of labour.
Demand for labour Demand is essentially about the number of jobs available in the industry and whether that is projected to stay the same, grow or decline. It is directly linked to the demand for goods and services, overall measure and other industry details found on abs.gov.au as GDP growth. So if GDP grows by 2.5% per year, in general it is expected that an industry and organisation might also slightly grow. In Star’s case, expected growth in the industry would be aligned to two industries:
Manufacturing and Construction, as Star makes windows and doors for housing and renovations. In ABS.gov.au, you can see employment trends overall to early this year.11.9 M people employed, So some idea about whether demand is growing or contracting in the industry is important information. This could include technological influences.
Government influence labour supply Overall, at federal level, you look at immigration trends, increases or decreases in allowable skilled migration, Sect 457 visas etc. may affect your organisation. Other influences relate to government support for young families – children being born and schooled, whether government continues to support tertiary education and employment incentives such as regional and remote area allowances, indigenous employment, traineeships, apprenticeships, etc. Also whether government supports relocation of skilled people to areas of need in the economy, either geographically or vocationally (swapping industries). State and local government can also influence supply levels.
Government influence – labour demand Will the industry be influenced by government budget measures, support or lack of support, eg withdrawing support for the car industry a couple of years ago. Will free trade agreements be beneficial or detrimental to your industry.
