Demonstrating the ability of the student to evaluate and analyse a problem related to a data set by means of statistical methods learned during the lectures.

Report

The assignment brief:

The individual assignment will be a report of 2500 word (+/- 10%) demonstrating the ability of the

student to evaluate and analyse a problem related to a data set by means of statistical methods

learned during the lectures.

The students will be introduced to a fictional company that has designed and run an employee

survey to solve current challenges. The survey is linked to financial and performance records of the

company. Each student will be issued with a unique variation of a simulated dataset. Students write

a report addressed to the Board of Directors. The report should include a short description of the

background of the problem, a brief report of the data preparation, analysis, interpretation of the

results with recommendations for actions. In addition, students should critically evaluate the

quality of the questionnaire and the analysis. The analysis should include descriptive statistics,

tests, correlation and regression. The report should follow a classic structure including an executive

summary as well as a log about data preparation as appendix. The log should be user friendly with

appropriate illustration to enable a reproduction of the analysis with the same results.

Check the assignment brief for the exact assessment criteria.

 

Background

In the last JCC (Joint Consultation Committee) meeting between senior management and employee

representatives, employee representatives reported about increasing dissatisfaction of shop floor

staff with recent restructuring in the company. They pointed out that employees feel more and

more detached from their work resulting in lower commitment to their work. Since firms sales also

declined recently, the senior management issued an employee survey to investigate workplace

issues and their impact on performance. They are also interested in the role and communication of

line managers as transmitters of companies’ strategy to shop floor employees.

You are commissioned to analyse the survey and write a report for the next Board of Directors

meeting. The survey has been linked to financial and HR records to permit a comprehensive analysis

of the problem. Employee representatives own the key data to merge the three data-sources. This

should secure anonymity for employees.

The data include the following variables from administrative records:

  • A person identifier
  • A team identifier
  • Age (admin1)
  • Gender (admin2)
  • Tenure (admin3)
  • Ethnic background (admin4)
  • Unit-level performance (admin5) in £ 1000

The data entail the survey (see next page) with the following variables (number of questions in

parentheses)

  • Engagement (survey1 – survey9)
  • Stress (survey10 – survey12)
  • Supervisor support (survey13 – survey16)
  • Distributional justice (survey17)
  • Procedural justice (survey18)
  • Decision autonomy (survey19)
  • Job satisfaction (survey20)
