Assessment Task 1 Instructions
Carefully read the following:
Boutique Build Australia was established in 1990 and is a boutique building company based in Sydney that specialises in the design and build of high quality designer homes for the Sydney metropolitan and surrounding areas. The company employs approximately 50 staff including the CEO, Operations Manager, Human Resources Manager, Marketing and Sales Manager, Customer Service Officers (6), architects (2), Site Managers (3) and a large team of tradespersons, some of whom are employed and some are contractors.
The personnel are generally managed as three overlapping teams: administration, sales, and on-site.
The company is in a period of growth, and has opened an office in Brisbanewith the goal of expanding into the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast over the next five years.
At a recent executive meeting, it was decided that Boutique Build Australia should participate in the upcoming Australian Home Show in Brisbane on (a weekend in about three months’ time). It will run from Friday through Sunday, from 10am to 5pm, and be widely publicised in the media.
It is hoped that a strong presence at the show will attract the interest of potential customers. The company’s ongoing expansion also means that more tradespeople will be needed to work on new building projects. The show provides a great opportunity to make contact with many qualified tradespeople who attend the show. We would like to have at least three courtesy staff at the booth at all times, collecting details of potential customers and tradespeople. Ideally, these would be current Boutique Build office staff, who will be familiar with the company’s range of products and services. The data collected will then be given to the sales and marketing team.
This data is to be collected using two documents that have been used in previous projects, Customer Data Collection, and Team Member Data Collection.
It has been decided that several of Boutique Build’s tradespeople will build a kitchen in the congress stand, using some new material and new designs from our architects. This will, hopefully attract, a lot of traffic to the stand. The company’s Master Builder will oversee the new kitchen’s construction and the training of the selected tradespeople. It will be vital that the tradespeople building the kitchen are able to speak with members of the public (and other tradespeople) to describe the work they do. As the stand will be quite small, a maximum of two tradespeople will be able to work on the kitchen at a time. It has been estimated that two tradespeople can build the kitchen in about 18 hours.
As Human Resources Manager, you will be managing the Home Show project, reporting to the company’s General Manager. You will also be in attendance at the Show, to manage the staff attending the stand. Several of the management team will also be in attendance at the Home show, but will be involved in the ongoing running of the stand.
The staff selected to work on the stand will be directly answerable to the Project Manager, but the Master Builder will be in frequent attendance at the stand to keep an eye on the kitchen constriction, and the administration Manager will assist the courtesy staff with any questions that are outside their expertise.

Complete the following activities:
1. Write a project HR briefing report
In order to commence the planning of human resources for the event, you are required to write a briefing report to provide to the General Manager that includes the following:
• A Work Breakdown Schedule should be created to set out the project organisation and structure.This will allow you to align individual and group competencies with project tasks.
• The personnel resource requirements for the show
• The expected staffing levels
• The individual tasks that will be expected of the staff members
• The competencies expected of staff.
• Project role descriptions. These role descriptions will be circulated among Boutique Build’s staff to see how many are interested in working on the stand during the Home Show. Ensure that these are written clearly, and in a language suited to the personnel you wish to have working at the stand. The role descriptions should include, as a minimum:
o Authority level
o Task responsibilities
o Performance measurement criteria
o Training plan
o A request that interested staff should contact the Human Resources Manager, and explain why they would like to be involved in the project.
You are also expected to explain the following in the briefing report:
• Your strategies for preparing and managing the staff who will work at the stand.
• Human resource management methods, techniques and tools that you will use to prepare the staff for their roles. These should include at lest one training session for the selected staff, and include any staff skills training techniques, such as roleplays, that could contribute to their performance at the Home Show.
• Techniques for managing and improving staff performance that you intend to use with the selected staff, such as observation and assessment, or mentoring.
• The criteria that will be used to measure individuals’ performance, and the processes that will be used to determine these.
Use the Briefing Report Template to guide your work.
2. Send an email to the General Manager (your assessor).
The text of the email should be in grammatically correct English, written in an appropriate (polite, business-like) style.
It should introduce and summarise the contents of the attachment, and seek their feedback and the time, date and place of your meeting.
Attach your briefing report to the email.

3. Meet with the General Manager (your assessor) to negotiate project job descriptions.
You are required to demonstrate that you are able to negotiate the wording of the job descriptions. That will involve discussing what you have written, and then incorporating your General Manager’s input into the document.
During the meeting, 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
4. Review your briefing report.
Incorporate the General Manager’s suggestions into an updated version of your briefing report.
Name this document Revised Briefing Report.
5. Allocate personnel to the project.
Assume that your project role descriptions have been sent to Boutique build staff, and many administration staff and tradespeople have expressed interest in working on the Home Show stand. The staff’s responses have been recorded in the Staff List, and each applicant’s line manager has given a brief summation of their abilities.
Review the Staff List and decide which staff members would be most appropriate to work at the stand during the show.
Review the Recruitment, Selection and Induction Policy and Procedures to ensure that your staff allocation is in accordance with this.
Use the Staff Allocation Report Template to write a short report on why you have chosen each of the staff on your list. Refer to the Recruitment, Selection and Induction Policy and Procedures when appropriate.
6. Send an email to the General Manager (your assessor).
The text of the email should be in grammatically correct English, written in an appropriate (polite, business-like) style.
It should introduce and summarise the contents of the attachments.
Attach your updated briefing report and your staff allocation report to the email.
