Using good quality academic and journalistic sources, prepare a 1,500 word report for
the CEO on HRM issues at Glocal Textiles (GT). Your knowledge and understanding of
Human Resource Management of an organisation, including management of individual,
team, and organisation will be critically examined.
The title of your report should be:
A Business Report to improve the delivery of HR Processes at Glocal Textiles (GT).
Your report should include:
• A title Page
• Executive Summary
• Contents Page
• Outline of the primary HRM issues in Glocal Textiles (GT).
• Proposal to improve the delivery of HR Processes at Glocal Textiles (GT).
• Implementation plan including outline costings and responsibilities
• Risk register to identify the main risks that your proposals carry and whether
they are red (likely to happen and serious) yellow, (less serious and / or less
likely to happen) or green ( unlikely to happen and less serious).
• References using Harvard Referencing conventions.
The word count of 1,500 words will not include the title page, executive summary,
contents page or references.
You will not need to draw on all change and leadership theories that you read but should
select instead those which are most applicable to the case study – Glocal Textiles (GT)
and apply them appropriately.
It is important that you show knowledge of key debates within the literature on Human
Resource Management within an organisation. Also, it is strongly advised that you are
critical in your writing and ensure a good level of integration and coherence in applying
theories. Please work on, and ensure an excellent level of criticality, coherence, and
flow of your report. This will require effective discussion and clarity.
Please note that a significant amount of the marks are awarded on the basis of wider
reading, critical and logical presentation, quality of argument, referencing, academic
integrity and academic writing conventions. Please see Assessment Criteria on the
The reassessment will be a resubmission of this report, with track changes made in
response to the feedback given and the comments tab used to explain the changes.
The date for Reassessment will be advised for Summer 2021. There is no 24 hours late
tab on reassessment.

2. Evaluate major contemporary theoretical and managerial perspectives
on people management.
3. Engage critically and analytically with literature relating to major

4. Appreciate how research into effective people management underpins
thinking in the other, more specialised fields of HRM and HRD practice
that you will be studying.
Subject-based practical skills
5. Ability to effectively apply HR theories and models to situations and
6. Effectively apply key ratios appropriate for analysing the financial
performance of the organisation.
Skills for life and work (general skills)
7. Develop and express strong, original and well-justified arguments to
support your views.
8. Advise colleagues and senior managers about making improvements to
management systems and thinking in organisations.
We strongly suggest that you try to submit all coursework by the deadline set
as meeting deadlines will be expected in employment. However, in our
regulations, UEL has permitted students to be able to submit their coursework
up to 24 hours after the deadline. The deadline is published in this module
guide. Coursework which is submitted late, but within 24 hours of the deadline,
will be assessed but subjected to a fixed penalty of 5% of the total marks
available (as opposed to marks obtained). If you submit twice, once before the
deadline and once during the 24 hour late period, then the second submission
will be marked and 5% deducted. This rule only applies to coursework. It does
not apply to examinations, presentations, performances, practical assessments
or viva voce examinations. If you miss these for a genuine reason, then you
will need to apply for extenuating circumstances, or accept that you will receive
a zero mark.

b) Guidance on referencing
As a student you will be taught how to write correctly referenced essays
using UEL’s standard Harvard referencing system from Cite Them Right .
Cite them Right is the standard Harvard referencing style at UEL for all
Schools apart from the School of Psychology which uses the APA system.
This book will teach you all you need to know about Harvard referencing,
plagiarism and collusion. The electronic version of “Cite Them Right: the
essential referencing guide” 9th edition, can be accessed whilst on or off
campus, via UEL Direct. The book can only be read online and no part of it
can be printed nor downloaded.

c) Details of submission procedures – to include
Notice is hereby given that all submissions for this component (Individual
Coursework HR) of this Module must be submitted to Turnitin.” If you fail to
submit component (Individual Coursework HR), to Turnitin, in accordance
Updated Sept 2020 6
with the guidance provided on the Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle), a
mark of 0 will be awarded for the component.
Submitting Assessments Using Turnitin:
Turnitin is required for coursework assessments, such as report/research
papers or projects in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and in PDF format.
There are two main reasons we want you to use Turnitin:
• Turnitin can help you avoid academic breaches and plagiarism. When
you use Turnitin before a submission deadline, you can use the
Originality Report feature to compare your work to thousands of other
sources (like websites, Wikipedia, and even other student papers).
Anything in your work that identically matches another source is
highlighted for you to see. When you use this feature before the
deadline, you will have time to revise your work to avoid an instance of
• Turnitin saves paper. When using Turnitin to electronically submit your
work, you will almost never have to submit a paper copy.
Late Submissions Using Turnitin
UEL has permitted students to be able to submit their coursework up to 24
hours after the deadline. Assessments that are submitted up to 24 hours
late are still marked, but with a 5% deduction. However, you have to be
very careful when you are submitting your assessment. If you submit
your work twice, once using the original deadline link and then again using
the late submission link on Turnitin, your assignment will be graded as late
with the 5% deduction.
Turnitin System Failure
Best advice: Don’t wait until the last minute to submit your assessments
electronically. If you experience a problem submitting your work with
Turnitin, you should notify your lecturer/tutor by email immediately.
However, deadlines are not extended unless there is a significant systems
problem with Turnitin. UEL has specific plans in place to address these
issues. If UEL finds that the issue with the system was significant, you will
receive an email notifying you of the issue and that you have been
given a 24 hour extension. If you don’t receive any email that
specifically states you have been given an extension, then the
original deadline has not been changed.
d) Feedback and return of work
Work should be submitted on Turnitin and all feedback will be on Turnitin.
You should not submit formative work to your seminar tutor as generic
feedback will be given to the whole class.
