Abstract:The current status of E-­HRM research is assessed from an IS perspective, as this is where the field of E-­HRM (partly) originated. In contrast to most E-­HRM research, which is founded in HR or Business Research, this paper presents a new scope to study E-­HRM. This new scope can be used to complement existing research and offer additional understanding of the field of E-­HRM. Based on a literature review on IS in MNCs, this paper presents a framework that represents the existing body of literature on E-­HRM in MNCs. The paper demonstrates that general IS literature can be considered a valuable addition to E-­HRM literature. The importance for more E-­HRM research in earlier stages of the E-­HRM lifecycle, i.e. pre-­implementation and implementation, is supported by the findings. In addition, a comparison between ‘Top Journals’ and ‘Other Journals was made, which reveals that ‘Top Journals’ tend to keep an organizational focus, while ‘Other Journals’ take on a more individual focus.
