Part A case study is going to be released on the 10th December 2018 and the exam is to be sat on either the 8th/9th January 2019

Part A will be the first set of information that we will all be given to research and make notes on
Part B however is the written assessment and not like unit 2, when Part B was a written assessment with extra information

For revision, ideally you need to get hold of a textbook from your business teacher and revise the key learning aims in the book and test yourself. You will want to make sure you know all the learning aims A-F as we could be asked to form a report and executive summary for a selected business in a certain learning aim for the examination

I think the primary focus is on:
HR
Motivational theories and the different examples from top companies to improve staff retention
Motivating employees
Appraisals
Quality management

But we have to revise the whole textbook

If we know it’s going to be on HR why would we have to revise the whole of unit 6? I guess it would give you more knowledge on the general subject...

Revising the whole textbook is a better approach since we are not 100% that it may be just around HR and motivational theories, there could be other pointers needed and also do some research in broad with the computing market

Hey, I don't quite understand what we are supposed to include within our Unit 6 exam, how are we supposed to implement theories to the issues of the case study? From class I understand the structure we can use below.1. Identify key issues2.Explain the causes of the issues and link them to motivational theories and management functions.3. How would you resolve the situations at hand. A concise resolution is neededAlthough, there are no example texts that truly give a guideline on how to do this, can anyone help please?

that is some really great info thanks
Here some questions you should answer to help you prep for the exam


  1. Carry out research into Google on how they recruit, motivate and retain their employees?
  2. Research the ‘employee experience’ and summarise its findings.
  3. Research the white paper ‘engaging generation me’ and summarise its findings (according to the white paper)
  4. What is a ‘Head of Employee Experience’ and how can they help with the employee experience strategy in a business?
https://www.cornerstoneondemand.com/...and-specialist


  1. In figure 1, consider who you think should be accountable for employee experience?
  2. What is a cloud-based IT solutions business? What do they do?
  3. Where are Anvil Cloud Ltd based?
  4. What type of workspace do they have?
  5. What is their USP?
  6. Describe each of the job roles? What do they actually do?
  7. How many new employees do they need to recruit? Which staff do they need to recruit?
  8. How do you think they can recruit the best employees? There is high demand for these types of employees and how can you attract these employees?
  9. Is it better to use specialised recruitment agencies or train up existing employees to cover these roles? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? Remember - she needs them IMMEDIATELY!!
  10. How can they improve the staff turnover? Figure 3 - for example, Look at JUNIOR Digital graphic designers, Interns…. …….
  11. How can they improve ‘employee experience’? What impact will this have on staff turnover?
