HRM 530 Final Exam
TCO A: Explain how you would introduce the concept of technology into an HRM office? What factual information would you share to convince the business leaders of the value of HRM technology? Provide a thorough explanation.

TCO C: You are the new staffing manager for Square, Inc., a large and still growing company with 23 locations nationwide. Square Inc. hires approximately 300 employees per year. They currently place advertisements in their local paper to source candidates. They also receive an estimated 2,000 unsolicited resumes annually, but usually find it too time consuming to review them all. Currently, Square Inc. does not utilize technology in their staffing processes. Assess the given situation at Square, Inc. and recommend specific ways that Square, Inc. could utilize HRM technology to improve the effectiveness of their staffing function. In your recommendations, be sure to address any potential problems that might arise from the use of each technology you are recommending, and provide solutions for those problems.
