People Practice Team

Assessment Instructions

▪ Refer to the indicative content in the unit to guide and support your evidence.

▪ Pay attention to how your evidence is presented, remember you are working in the People

Practice Team.

▪ Ensure that the evidence generated for this assessment remains your own work.

Scenario

Your company is planning its forthcoming annual development event and the topic that the people

practice team will be showcasing is evidence-based practice. In readiness for this event your

manager has asked you to complete two tasks.

Task Two – Quantitative and qualitative

analysis review

By way of exemplifying the importance of decision-making strategies and how these can be used

by people practitioners to solve people practice issues, your manager wants you to illustrate to the

audience how the people professional department interprets different types of data to inform sound

decision making. Completion of these two activities will address the following:

▪ With reference to a people practice issue, interpret analytical data using appropriate

analysis tools and methods. (AC 2.1)

▪ Present the findings for stakeholders from people practice activities and initiatives. (AC 2.2)

▪ Make justified recommendations based on evaluation of the benefits, risks and financial

implications of potential solutions. (AC 2.3)

Presented below are two sets of data. Firstly, review the absence data that is presented in Table 1

and provide analysis of it to show:

a) trends across departments

b) absence by type

c) absence by gender

d) total days lost through absence

e) annual total costs through absence based on a 37-hour working week.

Present your finding using appropriate diagrammatical forms and make justifiable

recommendations based on your evaluations.
