Sample Assignment

 

To succeed in this unit, you are required to complete two assignments. You must ensure that you cover the assessment criteria for this unit over the two assignments as indicated. 

Assignment 1

Context

You work for a reputable private clinic.  Your organisation has recently received a lot of bad publicity in the local newspaper because of a few issues. It has been alleged that waste products have not been disposed of properly, that working conditions are poor for cleaning staff and that parking for visitors to the clinic adversely affects local residents.  The raising of these issues has caused your organisation to consider other corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues such as carbon neutrality and recycling.  It has become apparent to senior managers that a CSR policy is needed but the Board must be convinced of this.  They have asked you to put together a persuasive case for introducing a CSR policy for senior managers to consider, prior to this going to the Board.  You will present your arguments in the form of a report.  

Task 1

Carry out research and produce an explanatory report for senior managers which covers the following

• a definition of CSR

• a description of the background and changing attitudes to CSR

• a description of the regulatory framework for CSR

• an explanation of environmental issues in CSR which would be covered by a policy

• an explanation of economic and political issues in CSR

• an explanation of social and community issues in CSR.

 

Task 2

Following submission of your report, the senior managers wish to explore the issues further.  They invite you to a discussion where you are presented with a series of questions.  Prepare detailed answers to the questions/ topics and be prepared to present any or all of your responses verbally.
