HUMAN RESOURCES IN THE DIGITAL AGE (Issues impact and challenges of e-HR in the Indian Scenario)
There is no gainsaying the fact that e-HR has become an inseparable part of the functioning of almost all the large business players in the current scenario. It helps in integrating the widespread activities of organizations by enabling connectivity between different organizational functions and providing accurate and timely personnel information on-line and round the clock. The ultimate result is a substantial elimination and cutting down of redundant activities and a boost to the profit margins of the organizations. E-HR phenomenally reduces dependence on the time consuming and error-prone HR paper trail. However, as always, technology comes with its inherent risk- that of huge set up costs, overkill and loss of the “human touch.” Hence, first and foremost it is very important for the HR professionals to get comfortable with the technology before they make other people see the value of such tools.This paper highlights the results of a study conducted to identify and analyze the issues involved in installing e-HR systems in any organization.
