Final Case Study

Answer5: In my opinion, out of the three options I would suggest the third option for the Controls, Inc. subsidiary. To continue with their current strategy containing a lot of errors and haphazard would mean dissolving the company into nothing in the coming future. Also I would also not suggest hiring an HRM specialist that also from another firm because the Company cannot afford to take such risks in handling such high paid workers who needs a suitable working environment with hardworking team-mates.
