Assess the competencies or qualities that are required. This may include any soft skills that are required to do the job.
Part C: Labour Market Assessment (40 marks)
Write a two-page report (approximately 500 words) conducting a labour market assessment for the position you described in Part B. Make sure you have read and can apply the steps addressed in Chapter 4 (pp. 79-93) of your textbook. This includes:
Assessing the demand for labour for your position (including a review of economic, legal, and social factors that influences growth or decline for the services or products in your organization, as well as internal factors that may alter the workforce identified on page 84 of your textbook) for your position.
Assessing the supply for labour (including general economic conditions, labour market conditions, and occupational market conditions that may alter the workforce) for your position.
Based on your assessment of supply and demand in #1 above, determine the overall situation (i.e., equilibrium, surplus, or shortage) and make recommendations on what your organization can do if it were going to replace you given the labour market conditions.
Completion Guidelines (these are factors that are required and will affect your overall grade).
