Assignment 2 Specifications
Topic:
Workplaces today are undergoing dramatic changes and the future presents many challenges and
opportunities for both HRM and employees.
Technological change, particularly the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and new generation
robotics, are said to represent a “third wave” of economic development that will displace current jobs and
current employment patterns and will fundamentally impact upon the very fabric of society itself.
Task:
1. Broadly discuss these trends and also discuss their impact at the societal level in 40 to 50 years’ time. Will
society be better or worse overall for most people? 500 words
2. Select 3 occupations from the following list:

General Medical PractitionerData AnalystEnvironmental Scientist
AccountantUniversity LecturerRecruiter

a. Present data on the current demographics for these occupations in Australia as well as the changes in
that group over the last 40 years. You must establish the size and composition of that occupational
category going back to 1970 and analyse trends.
b. Predict the future situation for your chosen occupations in 2060. Consider the major decline, no
change or major improvement and indicate which is most likely and justify (500 words for each
occupation, separate headings for each)
3. Finally, in your conclusion please discuss (500 words)
a) What are the implications for employees today (i.e. different way of working, new skills etc.)?
b) What are the implications for leaders and managers?
Format
Your report should be structured as follows:
1. Cover Page (Names of your group with student IDs, name of unit, word limit, date of submission)
2. Executive Summary (not more than one page, is not included in the word limit)
3. Introduction – AI and robotics (500 words)
This states the purpose and structure of the paper and identifies the main theme or proposition(s) that you
are trying to prove. It tells the reader what to expect.
4. Body – Choose 3 occupations and demonstrate changes over the last 40 years (500 words each)
• In the body of the paper you are trying to build a logical argument that supports the main theme or
proposition. The body needs to be consistent with what you have said you are going to do in the
Page 3 of 7
HC2101 Performance Management for HR – Group Assignment V01
introduction. 2. Each paragraph should have a topic sentence, and the points you are making should
reflect that topic.
• Use a Human Resources Management (HRM) theory and examples to explain your argument. Remember
that you are trying to present a logical, cohesive and clear analysis of the key issues that you have
identified, and to use these to support your proposition or theme in a systematic way.
• You only have 2500 words therefore you will need to be succinct and persuasive in presenting your
argument.
5. Conclusion and recommendations (500 words)
• A conclusion is not just a list of the key points you have made. You need to draw together your key
points to demonstrate that you have supported your theme or proven your proposition(s).
• The conclusion needs to be consistent with both the introduction and the body of the report.
6. Reference List
Reference list should have a minimum of 8 academic references with links back to in-text citations.
You are expected to research widely and build your knowledge from the expertise of others. Thus it is
important for you to reference all your sources to:
• To allow you or someone else to find the source of your information
• To avoid plagiarism by acknowledging that you’ve used the ideas and work of others
• To strengthen your arguments and add credibility by referring to expert ideas
Reference list (a minimum of 8 academic references with links back to in-text citations).
