Every year, organizations spend a significant amount of their budget towards the investment of a digital HRM solution. The field is developing very quickly and an increasing amount of organizations keep on investing in e-HRM continuously.

The operational consequences are related and have been commonly explored with outcomes of efficiency, effectiveness, and cost- and time reduction/ savings for HRM. The relational consequences imply improvements in the HRM service for management as well as employees, improved HR communication, HR relationships, and changes in the HR professional status. The transformational consequences are characterized by the focus on organizational change/ strategic reorientation, strategic knowledge management, strategic competency management, globalization, and HR scheduling. The aim of this study is to get insights in the consequences of a digital HRM solution for an organization its HRM- and business performance.

Additionally, we will look at the changes in the development of perceptions of e-HRM consequences in the last 10- 12 years. Therefore, we have drawn the following sub-question: “What are the changes in the development of perceptions of e-HRM consequences in the past decade”?
