Question

Case Scenario: Fictitious Business Description;Castle?s Family Restaurant has eight restaurants in the Northern California area with approximately 300-340 employees. Most of the employees work part time, with approximately 40% full time. The operations manager, Jay Morgan, also acts as the HR manager and travels to each location each week to take care of scheduling, recruiting, hiring, and answering questions for the employees as needed. He also takes care of payroll using an Excel spreadsheet and has a computer application to print payroll checks. Mr. Morgan approaches you, an HR Consultant, for a proposal. Due to the increase in gasoline costs, he would like to greatly reduce his travel time for visiting each location each week and wonders if there is anything you can suggest to him to help him complete his HR tasks in a cost-effective manner. He hopes there is some way he can do part of his HR tasks from his office instead of traveling to each location.;Stage I (due Week 2);Using the case scenario above, provide an assessment of the current business. Describe the company in terms of size, type of business, etc. Explain why you think an HRIS is needed.

Make assumptions in your business description using theory as needed and include the information in your paper for this case scenario.

Share the ?type? of system you plan to implement to help your customer. This must be substantiated in this paper to your customer from a theoretical perspective.;HRIS VENDOR CHOICE: Now that you have an HRIS type chosen, you need to now conduct research to find an HRIS vendor. You want to do a compare and contrast in this section of at least two vendors. Then, choose a vendor. Explain why you chose this vendor over others. Include the web address and proper citations for the vendor applications compared. You must have theory to support your decision.;Stage III (Final Project, due Week 7);At this point in the project, you have identified the problem and a technology solution for the business.
