Abstract:This research project investigates the e-HRM consequences present at Dutch schools while taking into account the context and technology used. Via 17 interviews operational, relational and transformational e-HRM consequences were identified. Via a questionnaire with 184 respondents from 3 schools the perception of employees regarding operational and relational consequences were measured. Operational and relational consequences were found to be present at schools, but transformational consequences could hardly be identified. Operational consequences mainly positively impact the HR-department, but also negatively impact line managers and digitally less skilled employees. Relational consequences were found to have a mixed impact regarding different groups of employees. The identified transformational consequences were found to have a positive impact or the impact couldn’t be measured. The perception of employees regarding operational consequences was neutral, but was negative regarding relational consequences. The introduction of e-HRM technology does impact job satisfaction and e-HRM technology is not considered to be innovative, only as a basic necessity by employees and line managers. Increasing the use of e-HRM technology is seen as a positive development by both line managers and employees. E-HRM technology may be an opportunity for the schools, but strong HRM systems need to be in place first.
