ABSTRACT
The HR Department of any company holds some of the most confidential and sensitive information in the organization. Data relating to employees is of a highly contentious and potentially litigious nature and has to be managed in accordance with compliance regulations. While sharing characteristics with other types of records, personnel records have some special characteristics; importance, sensitivity, longevity, quantity and ownership.
We will base this report in the company called CASTELLON SA, manufacturing factory with more than 250 employees. NOTE TO THE CASTELLON SA HR DIRECTOR ABOUT WHY RECORDING, ANALYSING AND USIN HR DATA IS IMPORTANT
I. Two reasons why organisations need to collect HR data.
Collecting and recording HR data is vitally important to our organisation. We need to keep certain records, some because the law requires them, and some for company’s internal purposes. Being a production factory we have to ensure we are in compliance with Health and Safety laws and regulations ensuring that all staff is maintaining high health and safety awareness. To avoid any act of discrimination in our company and to prove that the company is adhering to UK’s current law and legislation we have to implement the Data Protection Act to our data collection policies.
The HR data collection could help in our company’s overall performance measurement process. The data collected enable managers to make sound decisions more effectively. Some of the benefits of data collection are; helps identify or confirm a problem that exists; allows us to work with facts and empirical data; provides information with which to measure the success of implemented improvements.
Another example could also be to monitor employee absence levels across the organisation and looking for any pattern or trend relating to individual absences. This data could be used in absence…...

...Activity 1 In this briefing note I will be looking into and exploring an organisations approach to collecting, storing and using Learning and Development (L&D) data. Organisations collect L&D data regardless of their size or structure. The main reason an organisation would collect L&D data is so they are informed of the current skill set within certain areas/services this can help with a number of things such as new training commissioned as well as helping the organisation to identify which staff could be best equipped for new roles within the organisation. Another key reason that organisations keep L&D date is so that they have employee records and statistics on each of their workforce, this would be needed to coincide with legislative requirements Types of Data collected Evaluation records are important within any L&D function this can range from pre-course surveys which may be sent out to gauge the existing knowledge of the attendees to evaluation forms that delegates are required to complete once the course has been completed. Any organisation needs feedback on what they have commissioned this is due to a number of factors a main one being that it helps them identify if the learning aims and objectives have been met as well as identifying areas for improvement. When commissioning L&D activities it is important that you research what competitors are offering so that you stay competitive within the market, for instance it is important that when you are looking at......

...1.1 Explain the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be effective in an identified HR or L&D role. The explanation should refer to the HRPM, and include a summary of the HRPM (particularly the 2 core professional areas) and an explanation of the activities and knowledge, at either band 1 or 2, of any one of the professional areas. The CIPD HR Profession Map specifies the activities, knowledge and behaviours involved in different HR/L&D roles. It’s a framework of things you need to do and know in order to be a successful HR professional. The HRPM is made up of 10 Professional Areas, the 4 Bands of Professional Competence and the 8 Behaviours. The two Core Professional Areas are Leading and managing and Insights, Strategy and Solutions. These areas are vital to all HR professionals. Insights, Strategy and Solutions - This area deals with the professional’s understanding and insight into an organisation. Through knowledge of how the business works an HR professional can put into practice strategic solutions to effectively manage an organisation’s specialist requirements. Leading HR - To effectively lead in HR one must act as a ‘role-model leader’. This includes developing yourself professionally, whilst also leading, supporting, and tracking others development.

Information on this map is shown (below) by a circle made up of a core and 3 layers, and also 4 bands which are displayed to the side. Starting from the core, I’ll work my way out through the layers to the outer edge of the circle, and then discuss the bands, one by one. The core of the circle is applicable to all HR professionals, and is central to all roles. There are two aspects of the core – the very centre, labelled, ‘Insights, strategy and solutions, and the ring around this, which is defined as ‘Leading HR’. The centre reminds us that the HR professional have continuous awareness of business strategies and areas of weakness and have the skills and capability to provide genuine business solutions that fit with organisational values. Professionals should be able to consider a range of needs and factors, such as customer needs, financial constraints and political climate.

...during the entire session. NEGATIVE Language: Having a session with multicultural adults can cause confusion and misunderstanding with some learners. It is important to ask questions if they understood everything and also speak slow and clear. Location of venue: As all learners come from different parts of the country it is important to familiarize them with the location and how to get there. It needs to be close to public transport and have a nearby car park. Also the surrounding should be peaceful as noise from traffic or other factors can impact negatively on the session. Principles of adult learning Principle How the planned activity reflects 1. Adults are internally motivated and self-directed. As all the learners choose the CIPD course it makes them highly motivated and self-directed. 2. Adults bring life experiences and knowledge to learning experiences. Formative assessments throughout the session by questioning learners about their experiences and opinions. 3. Adults are goal oriented. Setting up aims and SMART objectives helps learners to fully understand the importance of the training session. 4. Adults are relevancy oriented. Regardless the size of the business, excellent customer service needs be at the heart of the business model in order to be successful. 5. Adults are practical.
