Devaki Devi Puvada


The advent of modern technology has strongly influenced the world of work in the 21st century. Computer Software simplifies the management of daily work and plays an increasingly central role in managing the organisations. In fact, companies must have specific functions in which information technology plays a fundamental role to convert a regular Human Resources (HR) department into a core, powerful and dynamic electronic HR department to accomplish its role of strategic partner in planning and execution of organizational activities .Therefore, it is expected that the HR practices and the Employment relations (ER) undergo major changes. This study is meant to provide an overview of the fundamental transformation of HR practices in light of modern technology and their specific consequences for employment relations. This study uses data collected from one Public sector steel plant, two Private sector steel plants, one Business process organization, one Public sector information technology organization and one Private sector information technology organisation covering 928 respondents to assess the linkages between HRM systems, Technology and Employment relations. The findings on the literature point out that the use of technology is an eminent tool to be applied to obtain competitive advantage and is a key part in global business. This study finds that the use of Technology influences HR systems and Employment relations and vice-versa.
