• External or Internal Hiring External hiring in the case of Tanglewood would be best since the company is increasing and expanding its stores. • Core or Flexible Workforce Tanglewood prefers to use their own core workforce instead of “temporary workers” therefore this may not work for the company, but I wanted to mention it as a possibility.
