    CASE STUDY代写 Diagnose the problems theories of strategic HRM

    Dear [your name],
    I am writing to you as the Managing Director of Greenlabs, a technology start up based in
    Sydney, Australia. We are six recent graduates who met in a postgraduate strategic HRM subject
    at UTS and share a passion for environmental sustainability. Unlike other firms that may focus
    exclusively on sustainability initiatives through resource and energy efficiency, our HR
    background means that we focus on the people to effect environmental and social change.
    From the very foundation of our company, we recruited people who expressed similar
    sustainability values. To strengthen our ‘green’ culture, we put all our new employees through a
    training programme that involves eight weekly half-day workshops through which employees
    design and lead an individual green initiative for our company. Initiatives included launching a
    Recycling Awareness Day or planning a tree-planting volunteer event. The programme ends with
    a weekend retreat in the Blue Mountains where our employees pitch their projects to one another
    and an award is given to the most transformational individual. At Greenlabs, we want to
    empower employees to become Eco-Heroes™, instilling in them the core belief that they have
    the capability to single-handedly make a better world.
    Based on employee feedback, our programme was wildly successful. Our employees
    reported feeling motivated and excited to change the future, and even now, claim to be
    passionate about sustainability. However, one year since our employees completed the training
    programme, we have some startling and disappointing results. Our company’s sustainability
    measures including energy consumption and waste are just as bad, if not worse, than they were
    before. Ironically, we discovered that our energy consumption increased as staff members
    photocopied hundreds of flyers to promote the Recycling Awareness Day and the tree-planting

    Please help us understand where we went wrong with our training programme and advise
    us on an alternate programme we could design, informed by academic theories in your subject,
    Strategic HRM. Thank you in advance for your help!
    Kindest Regards,
    Managing Director, Greenlabs
    Your Tasks
    1. Diagnose the problems with Greenlabs’ training programme drawing on relevant theories of
    strategic HRM.
    a) Outline the limitations of sustainability training in Greenlabs’ idea of Eco-Heroes™.
    b) Analyse why Eco-Heroes™ was so popular with employees even if the outcomes showed
    it was ineffective.
    2. Recommend an alternate programme, supported by theory, to promote more meaningful
    sustainability values and practices for Greenlabs.
    a) Describe the sociological perspective and analyse how it may be applied to sustainability
    and training in the context of organisations.
    b) Offer a creative solution for how Greenlabs may design a new training programme that
    takes the sociological perspective into account.

    Guidelines for Writing the Case Analysis
    1. An introduction and conclusion are essential elements in any complete assignment. Insights
    on how to write an effective introduction and conclusion can be found in the UTS Business
    School’s Guide to Writing Assignments.
    2. You may structure your response as an essay or a letter to the Managing Director of
    Greenlabs, as long as you write in a formal manner suitable for scholarly work.
    3. Note that restating of case facts is not included in the format of the assignment, nor is it
    considered part of analysis. The audience of your assignment will be familiar with the case,
    and you need only to mention facts that are relevant to (and support) your analysis or
    recommendation as you need them.
    4. Carefully proofread your work and/or enlist a proofreading buddy.
    5. Ensure your assignment is below the stated word limit. The word limit comprises all the
    words in the text from the start of the introduction to the end of the conclusion (including
    headings, quotations and in-line references). The main reason for this is to encourage you to
    write in a clear and succinct manner. Markers will stop marking after 1,500 words.
    6. Ensure you have appropriately acknowledged the original authors of information and ideas
    whose work you have drawn from. Of the various systems for presenting citations
    (acknowledgements within your assignment) and references (lists of sources used), the one
    favoured for use within UTS Business School and required for this assessment is the UTS
    Harvard system. Refer to the UTS Business School’s ‘Guide to Writing Assignments’ for the
    correct citation and referencing method:
    7. Submit your case study on time. Late submissions will incur a penalty to ensure fairness to
    other students who have complied with the submission deadline. Upload a soft copy to
    Turnitin using the link in the Assessment folder on UTSOnline. A cover sheet is not
    8. Requests for extensions must be made in writing at least two days before the due date and
    will only be granted in cases of prolonged illness, misadventure or other circumstances
    beyond the student’s control. Please attach all supporting documents directly to your request.
    Assessments submitted after the due date, or the revised due date where an extension has
    been granted, will be subject to a penalty of ten (10) per cent of marks per every day after the
    submission date and time. Where an assignment is more than five (5) days late the assessment
    will not be accepted and a mark of zero will be awarded for the assessment task. Students
    cannot expect to receive verbal or written feedback for late work.
