That all sounds good^, but the study design doesn't specify that you need to know ESM strategies for the employment cycle at all

Under the required knowledge, it lists this:

Management practices and processes associated with the key phases of the employment cycle:
Establishment phase:
human resource planning related to business strategy
job analysis and job design
types of recruitment methods and selection processes
employment arrangements and remuneration
Maintenance phase:
induction
training and development
recognition and reward
performance management
Termination phase:
termination management, including entitlement and transition issues;
Sometimes teachers use ESM strategies in SACs in order to help students better grasp the concept of ESM as it is relevant to all areas of business management, in my opinion :P

Page 26 of the study design states that;

"Ethically and socially responsible human resource management"

The human resource management encompasses the employment cycle and therefore this dot point - although not explicitly - indicates that students should have a knowledge of socially responsible management in respect to not only the employment cycle but human resources management as a whole. Teachers would be expected to teach this. Looking over a practice SAC I received from VCTA there is actually a question that directly relates to the aforementioned points, specifically the question was tempting you to discuss ESM relating to the maintenance phase of the employment cycle.

 Ethics relates to adhering to the legal requirements; that is, abiding by the law. Laws such as anti-discrimination laws during the recruitment and selection processes all fall under the category of ethics.

With employee relations, what do we specifically need to know?
 Do we need to know how the system has become decentralized, as in the specific history of Fair work, Awards, AWAs and other acts?

This is what the study design details:
management practices and processes associated with employee relations:
relationship to business objectives and business strategy
the similarities and differences between centralised and decentralised approaches
industry wide awards, collective agreements within an individual organisation and individiual
contracts
the role of human resource managers in employee relations under a decentralised approach
management styles and skills in employee relations, including their application to the resolution
of conflict.

Hello.
SAC 1b tomorrow.
Does anyone have any advantages of training and development? I dont think mine are strong enough. I have that it builds skills and knowledge, but I cant explain it well as to why it would benefit an organisation.

Training provides employees with the knowledge or specific skills needed to perform their jobs.  And allows employees to do their job more satisfactorily which means they are less likely to fear redundancy which will improve morale and job satisfaction. And also will improve employee satisfaction in that learning new skills will make them more valuable to the organisation. In turn, this all results in increased productivity, less staff absenteeism and turnover, increasing the businesses overall performance.

I had my SAC I thought I did really well. The mark allocation was really poor though.
How can you "analyse the link between training and performance appraisals", how are you meant to analyse (provide strengths/weaknesses) that? I think my teacher meant 'discuss'.

I recently had the Ventnor Eco-Tourist one, but I had 50 minutes to do it - felt like I did really well, but there was some random question that we didn't learn because I have had a substitute teacher for the entire start of Unit 4, asking us to define management by objectives or something.

Previous SAC before that, I learnt everything on the morning of the SAC, and got 92%. Kind of dropkicking busman now lol.
