Abstract

This paper explores how the national background affects the use of e-HRM, using data from thirteen European countries. Findings suggest that the adoption of e-HRM is region-specific and affected by multiple factors. They also support the existence of two distinct sets of HRM technological systems, i.e. back-end and front-end ones.

Keywords: e-HRM, national context, front-end and back-end systems

JEL Classification: M12, O32
