‘Fostering employee wellbeing is good for people and the organisation’. CIPD (2022)

7CO02 People management and development strategies for performance

Learner Assessment Brief

Assessment ID / CIPD_7CO02_23_01

Advanced Diploma in

 

  • Strategic People Management
  • Strategic Learning and Development

Introduction

Your knowledge and understanding of the material covered in this core unit will be assessed by the submission of an assignment.

For your assignment, you will be required to answer four of the questions listed below. Your assessor will let you know which questions you are to answer. You are expected to complete all the learning for the unit, irrespective of which questions you are asked to answer.

The four questions will be drawn from different learning outcomes, featuring one assessment criterion in each learning outcome. These questions encompass a wide range of generalist HR, OD & L&D subject areas.

You will write four answers of approximately 1000 words to the questions posed and submit them together in a single document. This constitutes your assignment for this unit. The total word count for the assignment will therefore be 4000 words, plus or minus 10%. The bibliography or list of references is not included in the total word count.

You must demonstrate within the submitted evidence (through headings and sub-headings) which learning outcomes and assessment criteria have been cited. We are unable to moderate your work if this is not included.

As this is an Advanced Level Diploma, it is important that you are able to demonstrate not only good knowledge and understanding of the material associated with each learning outcome, but also the ability to develop an original argument and justify it persuasively with reference to wider reading. Examples of approaches taken in a range of organisations are also an effective means by which to justify your arguments.

The six main criteria that CIPD requires centres to use when marking the assignments are outlined below, but it maybe that not all these criteria are present in every question.

(1) focus

(2) depth and breadth of understanding

(3) strategic application and professional advice

(4) research and wider reading

(5) persuasiveness and originality

(6) presentation and language

Assessment questions

Question 1 (AC1.1)

‘Fostering employee wellbeing is good for people and the organisation’. CIPD (2022)

Drawing upon published research, produce a business case that explains how promoting wellbeing strategies can benefit all stakeholders within an organisation.

Question 2 (AC1.2)

To what extent do you agree with the view that it is the responsibility of the Head of the People Function to ensure that employment policies and practices always support the achievement of an organisation`s current strategic objectives? Explain how this is achieved in your organisation, or one that is familiar to you. Justify your answer.

Question 3 (AC1.3)

Why is it challenging to bring about significant, long-term improvements in an organisation`s culture? Illustrating your answer with examples, evaluate what role the HR/HRD function can play in helping to meet these challenges.

Question 4 (AC1.4)

You are asked to make a 30-minute presentation at a local CIPD branch meeting. The subject is `a critical evaluation of systemic thinking and how it can help solve people management problems`. What THREE key points you would make in your talk and why?

Question 5 (AC2.1)

How far do you agree with the view that `high road` approaches are always preferable both for employees and employers? Justify your answer with reference to examples from your reading.

Question 6 (AC2.2)

There has been extensive research evidence that links people management practices with improved business performance.

Marking Grid

Learners will receive a Pass, Merit, Distinction or Refer/Fail result at unit level.

Assessors must provide a mark from 1 to 4 for each Learning Outcome in the unit. Assessors should use the generic grade descriptor grid as guidance so they can provide comprehensive feedback that is developmental for learners. Please be aware that not all of the generic grade descriptors will be present in every learning outcome for all the assignments, so assessors must use their discretion in making grading decisions.

To pass the unit assessment learners must achieve a 2 (Pass) or above for each of the learning outcomes.

The overall mark achieved will dictate the Grade the learner receives for the Unit, provided NONE of the learning outcomes have been failed or referred. A detailed marking grid will be released once the 4 questions are published.
