Bradford Enterprises has experienced rapid expansion over the last 12 months, growing from 10 locations and 3,000 employees in one state to 22 locations and 8,000 employees in seven states. Bradford Enterprises has decided to upgrade its HR approach and raise it to a new level to be more competitive. The company’s owner is looking to implement three specific HR tools to help the HR do its job well and manage this expansion. The tools are selection tests, a Human Resource Information System (HRIS), and succession planning tools. As an HR manager, you have been asked to sit on the committee to identify which selection tests, HRIS, and succession planning tools should be considered. Your task is to identify specific criteria for the selection process of each tool.
Write a paper of no more than 1,050 words identifying which selection criteria you feel is most valuable for each tool; use references to support your choice. The conclusion must include an analysis of the chosen criteria for the three tools and how they differ from each other.
