Assignment Overview and Directions:
Using your organization, or one you are familiar with, you will identify your knowledge of HRIS and to make a suggestion about a new piece of technology for each of the weekly learning objectives for HRMT415 for Weeks 2-6. It could be one piece of technology that brings these all together or you might have a suggestion for each. For clarification, these topics were discussed in the course for Weeks 2-6:
The topics for Weeks 2 through 6 are as follows:
1) Week 2 – eRecruiting and eSelection
2) Week 4 – Self-Service and HR Portals
3) Week 5 – eLearning and Training
4) Week 6 – Performance Management
Each of these topics should be about one page in length responding to the assignment objective, i.e. make a suggestion about a new piece of technology for each of the weekly learning objectives. In some cases, it might be an integrated system – where it is one program that fulfills each element.
You should also share the requirements that must be considered in relation to each of the decisions that you make as well as your rationale for the recommendation. A good place to find information for this assignment is the online APUS library and on the SHRM website. This paper will require you to research HRIS technology.
