Activity 1 •Write a report on Data Management which gives at least two reasons why organisations need to collect HR data, identifying at least two types of data to be collected and explain how each supports HR. You should also describe two methods of storing records and the benefits of each. Give an explanation of two essential items of UK legislation relating to the recording, storing and accessibility of HR data. Activity 2 •Identify an area of HR data that you will investigate, (such as absence data, records of new starters or leavers, performance appraisal statistics), the time period you intend to investigate and the part of the organisation you will focus on. Analyse this data to identify any trends, patterns, or causes, and present your findings in a written statement, with relevant supporting documents (for example, spreadsheets, tables, graphs or charts) to illustrate your analysis. If you have not been able to source your own data for this activity, we have provided three data samples for you to analyse. Choose ONE of the samples to analyse for activity 2.
