JKL Industries is an Australian-owned company selling forklifts, small trucks and spare parts to industry, with a rental division leasing forklifts and small trucks.
The company’s head office is in Sydney and JKL has branches in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra.
After 12 years in business, focusing on forklifts and small trucks, JKL has been offered the sales rights to a range of medium and large trucks from an overseas supplier. This opportunity will provide JKL with an advantage in range over its competitors.
Sales results over the past five years have indicated strong growth in forklift and truck sales, which have averaged 10% sales growth per annum. The rental market has been in decline for the past three years due to the reduced costs of these vehicles and some taxation benefits for purchases of these vehicles.
Taking the sales opportunity will, however, entail some significant changes, including significant changes to company structure and operations. The company will reposition itself to focus solely on retail sales and service and exit the rentals market, in which forces such as competition and consumer choice reduce potential profitability.
The changes will necessarily impact workforce planning. The company will need to ensure it has the right people with the right skills at the right time to achieve objectives. JKL will need to closely monitor turnover and recruitment and implement strategies to retain skilled people and ensure critical roles are filled. In accordance with the organisation’s values, JKL intends (to the extent feasible) to recruit from within the company and up skill or re skill existing rentals employees who wish to remain with the company.
As an HR consultant, you have been contracted by JKL to review workforce requirements and develop workforce objectives and strategies. To complete this task, you will need to assess factors that may affect workforce supply, such as internal labour resources and the external labour market.
ii. a discussion of the data you have considered and analysis of the impact on organisational objectives, including:
(1) internal and external labour supply predictions
(2) external conditions, for example, government policy
(3) organisational future demand and predictive techniques used.
c. Recommended actions:
i. Your proposed objectives for the modification of the workforce and retention of the workforce in line with strategic objectives through FY 2016–17. Ensure you develop objectives for sourcing skilled labour and promoting from within by:
(1) developing skills and organisational capability
(2) retaining skilled labour
(3) promoting workforce diversity.
ii. Your proposed strategies for realising each of the objectives above.
iii. Your proposed process for developing detailed targets consistent with objectives in consultation with managers.
5. Develop a communication strategy using the template provided in Appendix 2:
a. Plan communication and consultation activities to be undertaken to communicate, and seek approval and endorsement for, proposed workforce planning measures from stakeholders, including:
i. senior management
ii. line management
iii. workers.
b. Include in your communication strategy a broad plan to communicate implementation of the workforce plan to senior management.
Note: This communication activity will be planned in detail and undertaken in Assessment Task 2.
6. Develop a risk management and contingency plan using the template provided in Appendix 3. Assess risk and develop contingency planning for the three workforce objectives and strategies discussed in your report. At least one risk management and contingency plan must be in response to an extreme situation.
7. Submit all documentation as per specifications below. Please keep copies for your records. Note: For Assessment Tasks 2 and 3, you will need to refer to work submitted for this assessment task.

You will implement part of your communication plan by presenting and explaining your implementation plan to senior management to gain their acceptance and support.

To demonstrate your ability to apply general and longer-term strategies and objectives to current operational problems, your staffing action plan should be broadly consistent with the strategies you developed in Assessment Task 1.
4. Plan to deliver a presentation to senior management to explain and gain support for your workforce planning and your completed staffing action plan. Ensure your presentation:
a. exemplifies strategies to win support and overcome resistance to change from managers
