Abstract:Electronic human resource management (eHRM) is increasingly popular amongst firms. Potential benefits of eHRM are the opportunity to cut back costs (operational benefits), added interactional and basic business support options (relational benefits) and the ability to transform the HR function within a business to be more strategic value adding (transformational benefits). These benefits are proposed to have the potential to strategically contribute within an organization. Research on the presence of these benefits however is scarce and contradictory. This research addresses the gap between potential benefits of eHRM and the lack of empirical verification of these benefits. The following main research question is formulated: What are the contingencies influencing the strategic contribution of eHRM? Based on theory and empirical research a contingency framework is designed addressing the contingencies that are proposed to influence the strategic contribution of eHRM.
