Instructions

Review the following case study:

Accountancy Victoria is based in Footscray, Victoria and provides accountancy and book keeping services for a range of clients.

Accountancy Victoria was established by the two Directors who are the Senior Accountants for the company. Other staff employed are three accountants, a bookkeeper and an Officer Manager. The company is expanding due to the demand for accountancy services and will employ a further three senior accountants in the next 2 months, as well as an Officer Manager and Client Services Coordinator.

You have recently been appointed as the General Manager of Accountancy Victoria. Your role is to manage the day to day operations of the company. The first task you have been allocated is to establish formal systems and processes for a range of areas, as currently most of the company’s systems and processes are informal.

To start the process of creating formal systems and processes, you have been asked to develop systems and processes for workplace communication, consultation, as well as a Code of Conduct and dispute resolution processes.

You are required to complete the following activities either in relation to the case study information or for your own workplace.

Each document must be written in clear and concise English, be approximately 2 pages and follow the style guidance provided in the Style Guide.

  1. Research and develop a Code of Conduct

You are required to research and develop a Code of Conduct so that staff are aware of and follow the standard of behaviour expected of them in relation to their fellow employees, as well as clients. Your research could include review of other staff Codes of Conduct. The document you develop must be in your own words.

The Code of Conduct needs to include as a minimum the following guidance:

  • Introduction – purpose of the Code
  • Scope – who it applies to
  • Details of expected personal and professional behaviour (as a minimum, this should address a range of ethical behaviours, as well as behaviours appropriate to working within diverse workplace)
  • Conflict of interest requirements
  • Gifts, benefits and hospitality
  • Outside employment/consulting
  • Use of social media

  1. Workplace Communication and Consultation Policy and Procedure

Research and develop a workplace communication and consultation policy and procedure is needed to describe the mechanisms that will be used for internal communications, as well as how staff can provide input into a range of workplace related matters. Your research could include review of other workplace communication/consultation policies and/or procedures. The document you develop must be in your own words.

The policy and procedure should include the following minimum information:

  • Purpose
  • Scope
  • Communication strategies for communicating with staff – type, purpose and frequency. You should include at least four strategies in your policy and procedure.
  • Communication protocols for meetings in relation to sending out of agendas and writing up of minutes.
  • Consultation process – ways in which staff can contribute to workplace issues (e.g. surveys, suggestion forms, etc) – you must include at least three. Provide specific detail about the consultation mechanism e.g. for a suggestion box – indicate the location of the box and how suggestions will be recorded and actioned.
  1. Dispute Resolution Policy and Procedure

Research and develop a dispute resolution procedure needs to be established so that all staff are aware of dispute resolution procedures in place. The dispute resolution policy and procedures needs to address the following:

  • Purpose of the policy
  • Scope – who it applies to
  • What constitutes a dispute
  • Responsibilities of managers in disputes
  • Responsibilities of employees in disputes
  • The process by which a dispute will be handled.
  1. When you have completed all of the above documents, you must submit them via email to your assessor (as though he or she is a staff member of Accountancy Victoria).

The email should provide a clear and simple summary of the documents attached and refer to the opportunity for staff to provide feedback. As the staff have varying levels of education and the bookkeeper’s first language is not English, ensure your email is written in plain English so as to be easily be understood by all recipients.

Your assessor in the role of a staff member will provide you with feedback which you should incorporate into your documents.

When you have incorporated the feedback, you will need to send the final versions to the staff (your assessor) via email again and indicating in a covering email that the feedback has been incorporated and outlining changes made based on staff feedback.
