(Element 1 & 2) This is a Graded assessment

 Conduct research using a range of sources to review:
  Current and predicted external labour supply data, and
  Demographic and economic data to forecast human resources supply.
  Organisational diversity requirements in the workforce
Prepare a short report of (approximately 1500 words) that analyses the labour market
based on current labour market statistics in an industry of your choice.

Your report should clearly show an interpretation of market statistics to address
the following performance criteria:

    Develop knowledge of labour demand and supply relevant to the specific industry
     currently and in the short term through labour force analysis
    Determine predicted areas of organisational growth and downsizing and
     associated labour requirements
    Analyse existing workforce of the organisation to determine areas where there are
     excesses or shortages
    Analyse the organisation's current workforce’s capacity to meet current and
     predicted demands for business goods and services

Assessment 2: Succession planning and workforce plan evaluation
(Weighting 60 %) (Element 3 & 4) This is a Graded assessment

Briefly examine an organisation's current workforce plan to:
 Evaluate whether the current workforce plan is effective and
 Make recommendations to provide a more effective usage of the organisation's
    labour market and to promote the organisation as an employer of choice.

Develop a plan that addresses internal labour needs in the medium to long term,

study from a relevant text or a scenario from your workplace.

The succession plan should address the following performance criteria:

   Longer term organisational goals and their effect on required labour supply
   Current and potential future demand for labour
   Identify areas with unacceptably high staff turnover and define objectives to
    address this aspect of workforce planning

   Implementation strategies in your succession plan to ensure desirable workers are
    developed and retained and programs to ensure workplace is an employer of
    choice
