MGT5A1 Coursework 1 Written Report (50% of total module mark)
Write a report describing and analysing the HR practices and issues within a company of your choice (subject to approval by the seminar tutor).
You must identify two different HR topics within that company. The HR topics are to be chosen from the weekly session titles on this module, for example Performance Management, Culture, Equality and Diversity, Change Management etc.
The company and topics must be approved by the seminar tutor, who has the final say over which companies to use. It may be possible to combine different aspects but check with your tutor. Tesco, South West Airline and John Lewis are barred as companies that you can choose.
For each topic you are expected to incorporate at least one appropriate theory/model or recognised practice. For example with Reward you could incorporate Total Reward; Culture you could include Schein or Deal and Kennedy; Performance Management you could include 360 degree feedback etc.
In your Conclusion you are to include at least one recommendation as to how might the company / industry etc improve the situation in the future.

MGT5A1 CW1 Written Report Marking scheme – Formative version
Note: All of the criteria need to be addressed effectively. For the purposes of marking in the summative version we have allocated 20 marks for each one, but as in the real world you might fail the whole thing if, for example in terms of objectivity, you appear to be acting as an unquestioning, subjective fanatic for the company, rather than a neutral observer.
