Abstract

The purpose of my research project was to look at the area e-business and its relationship with the human resource function, particularly the integration of e-business technology and HR. Although many organisations are aware of the benefits of e-HR there has been a varied response among HR practitioners to embrace technology with many implementing phases such as e-recruitment without as much knowledge of other benefits such as intranet systems, e-learning, media tools for communication etc. So I undertook a survey amongst HR professionals in order to gather information on their knowledge of e-HR technology and what they have been using to date. From the responses I received over 80% were using e-recruitment systems and were also providing HR related information on their websites with contacts, however only 50% were using e-HR for services such as training, handbook information, compensation and payroll. A smaller percentage of 30% were using e-HR for more technical services such as performance management, time and attendance and employee surveys. So the conclusion I had drawn was that although e-HR was being well received in the areas organisations were availing of they still were not fully responsive of other benefits and efficiencies that could be made through other areas such as intranets, e-learning, web 2.0, social networking and enterprise resource planning software as these areas scored low usage and responses.
