Personnel & human resources management

Human Resource Management System (HRMS) or interfacing between Human Resources Management (HRM) and Information Technology (IT) is yet to become a core area of interest for HR managers in India. However, curiosity of HRM practitioners in this area is increasing as database systems and ERP are entering into HR departments of organizations. Areas of HRM where this is directly making an impact are payroll, work time, benefits administration, HR management information system, recruiting, training, performance management, competency mapping, etc. What this book additionally emphasizes is the need for HR managers to be aware of the cultural implications of application of IT both at the social as well as the organizational level. It also highlights the importance of leveraging IT for knowing the employees better.
This book will be of value to HR managers of progressive organizations.
This book offers a sociological and historical perspective on the evolution of human resource management and how it is likely to change tomorrow's workplace. It captures the evolution of the human resource function from the welfare manager to the role of the cultural modernizer of today in a very compelling manner.
There are three main arguments that this book contains:
It is not enough that HR be only a curious onlooker to developments triggered by IT; HR needs to assimilate the core of it.
HR should be aware of cultural implications of what the modern technology is creating.
Know your employees and think about them better with information technology.
