The Human Resource Management department is arguably the most fundamental when it comes to the proper running of any organization, whether public or private. Riordan Manufacturing Inc. is essentially not an exception in this. With the current advancements in technology, the corporate world has maintained a lead in innovation as well as adaptability to change. Corporations are setting new standards by the day in a variety of fields, from manufacturing to customer care. A company’s human ...view middle of the document...
An automated system of Human Resource Management involves the use of online catalogs to gather, classify and analyze information from target audiences, who are in this case the employees of Riordan Manufacturing. Human Resource Information Systems can be referred to as online tools for managing an organization’s staff. The managerial duties encompassed within these IT structures include payroll administration and accounting operations. For such a dynamic and matrix establishment as Riordan Manufacturing, the most suitable HRIS package is one that consolidates its functions into simple but efficient divisions that cater to specific organizational needs. Therefore, an overhaul of the existing human resource management system within Riordan Manufacturing would result in a more efficient general and executive work-force. The proposed automatic system of human resource management would also serve to manage employee information regarding job-specific obligations and procedures within Riordan. This system will also assist top-level management in guaranteeing the safety of their workers by allowing for fast and efficacious networking platforms between various departments through which they may exchange information.
The actual data collecting tools and methodologies to use during the implementation of this project depend entirely on the intended purpose of the restructuring. The same goes for the data analysis method. In order to establish the efficiency of a system or structure of operation, there is need to involve every concerned party. Questionnaires and surveys would therefore prove to be integral parts of this particular monitoring, evaluation and control assignment. This is fundamentally the case since through no other means can a researcher establish the effectiveness of any enterprise, other than by using human-oriented approaches (Thite & Kavanagh, 2008). Whenever data is collected for the purpose of analysis in any research undertaking, a feasibility test is of paramount importance so as to ensure accuracy, timeliness and relevance in the information gathered (Boroughs, Hunter, & Palmer, 2008).
The most appropriate tool for determining the viability and correctitude of Riordan’s current human resource management system in this project is the Service Request Management model. This is primarily because the main aim is to determine the efficiency of the human resource system that has been in use within the organization. In other words, using this method will enable the company to ascertain whether its internal feedback mechanism is above par or requires a deep-seated overhaul. A feasible project is one that can produce desired results within a specified time-frame given certain financial and logistical constraints. Shifting from cumbrous management tools and techniques to automated systems is a move in the right direction given the aforementioned technological changes within the corporate arena. Since Riordan has provided a...
