BSBDIV601 Assessment Task 01 V2.0 Page 1 of 8

Carefully read the following scenario.

 

Aus Accountancy is a large accountancy firm with 25 staff, ranging from senior management staff to administration staff. The company currently has one office located in Sydney.

The company is in a period of expansion and needs to ensure that it can access a sufficient number of qualified staff. The company has been struggling with this over the last 12 months. The CEO has therefore decided that one of the strategies used to try and access staff will be to develop a formal diversity policy and procedures as well as an action plan, which will give the company access to a larger pool of staff, as well as reap all the benefits of diversity.

 

Complete the following activities:

1. Participate in a meeting with the CEO (your assessor).

As the General Manager of the company you have been asked to coordinate development of the company’s new diversity policy and procedures.

Review the case study information prior to meeting with the CEO to discuss initial requirements.

During the meeting, the CEO will discuss the organisation’s requirements for diversity policy and procedures with you, as well as existing practices in relation to diversity.

Please note: Your assessor will advise in class of the date and time of the meeting.

2. Write a diversity briefing report.

Following the meeting, you will be required to conduct research to assist in the development of the policy and procedures and write a briefing report on your research.

Your briefing report should, as a minimum, addresses the following:

· Purpose of the report, including current company position on diversity and existing policies and procedures that need to be taken into account.

· Australian diversity facts and figures including:

o Australia’s multicultural society, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait

Islanders and percentage of people born overseas and major countries of origin

o Religions

o Age structure

o Demographics of those with a disability and types of disability

· Diversity within the business environment, including cultures, beliefs, traditions and practices

· Intended and unintended impacts of diversity including:

o The benefits of diversity in the workplace and to society as a whole

o How a diverse society contributes to Australia’s image globally and to economic growth.

o How diversity can drive innovation

· Describe contemporary theory about diversity and its potential contribution to business advantage

· Identify benchmarks and other measurement indicators for planning and assessing the impacts of policy implementation.

· Legal requirements in relation to workplace diversity. List at least five Acts of legislation and explain the purpose of each.

· Examples of at least 2 diversity policies and procedures.

· Example diversity actions to inform the diversity action plan. You should research at least five examples to start off the diversity action plan.

Use the Briefing Report Template to guide your work.

3. Develop a diversity policy and procedures.

Develop the policy and procedures based on your research activity 1.

Keep in mind that this will be a draft version of this document, and you should name it accordingly. You will refine it and produce a final version following a presentation that will include their feedback.

4. Develop a diversity action plan.

You are also required to develop a diversity action plan to ensure that the company commences diversity action using your research and template.

Use the Action Plan Template to guide your work.

Keep in mind that this will be a draft version of this document, and you should name it accordingly.

5. Develop a questionnaire.

As you are also required to assess the impact of the diversity policy and

BSBDIV601 Assessment Task 01 V2.0 Page 3 of 8

procedures, develop a simple questionnaire that could be provided to staff following implementation.

Your questionnaire should include at least 10 questions, and include a rating scale for staff to indicate their agreement or disagreement with the statement.

6. Develop a PowerPoint presentation.

Prepare to present the new diversity policy and procedures and action plan to staff by developing a PowerPoint presentation.

The presentation must address the following:

· Diversity within the business environment, including cultures, beliefs, traditions and practices.

· Benefits of diversity as described in your briefing report plus diversity facts and figures.

· Intended outcome of the policy.

· An outline of the new diversity policy and procedure and the rationale for development (as set out in the briefing report)

· Planned diversity actions.

· You will be required to develop at least 8 slides to accompany your presentation. Wherever practical, the slides should include graphics such as table or charts or images.

You should include the diversity facts and figures in your presentation first and then, at the end of the presentation, outline the new diversity policy and procedure and action plan.

The staff that you will present to are a diverse group of individuals with varying levels of language and literacy skills, so you need to make sure the presentation is simple and clear and interesting to motivate them to adopt the new policy and procedures.

7. Deliver your presentation.

Using the PowerPoint presentation that you have developed, deliver a presentation to staff. Your assessor will be present as one of the staff members and will also organise another 2 other students to attend.

At the outset of the presentation, indicate that the team will be able to ask questions during and at the end of the presentation. Also inform staff that you would like to brainstorm further diversity ideas for the action plan at the end of

BSBDIV601 Assessment Task 01 V2.0 Page 4 of 8

the session.

During the presentation, demonstrate effective communication skills including:

· Speaking clearly and concisely

· Using non-verbal communication to assist with understanding

· Asking questions to identify required information

· Responding to questions as required

· Using active listening techniques to confirm understanding

At the conclusion of your presentation, seek feedback from staff on the new diversity policy and procedures, as well as ideas to inform the diversity action plan. Take notes on this feedback.

Please note: Your assessor will advise you of the date and time that your presentation is to take place.

8. Revise your diversity policy and procedures and your diversity action plan.

These updates should include the feedback that came out in the meeting. Ensure that the updated documents are named accordingly.

9. Draft an email to all staff (your assessor).

The text of the email should be in grammatically correct English, written in an appropriate (polite, business-like) style.

The email text should give an explanation and an interpretation of the diversity policy and procedures and the diversity action plan.

The text should also give a summary of the meeting, and the changes that you have made to the documents.
