Description & Coverage
Description:

Businesses worldwide are faced with major challenges related to the progressive (and many times unavoidable) incorporation of information technologies into their processes. Often, organizations don’t suitably react to the new requirements of these technologies, resulting in outdated policies, practices, and strategies.

Human Resource Management in the Digital Economy: Creating Synergy between Competency Models and Information is a reference for both practitioners and academics that demonstrates how to implement e-management and competency models in companies. This book offers perspectives on the impact of integrated e-human resource policies and provides recommendations for addressing the shift from traditional human resource policies to new perspectives.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Cross-Cultural Competences
  • E-Recruitment
  • Human Resource Flexibility
  • Human Resources Management Strategies
  • Organizational Analysis of E-Learning
  • Organizational Commitment and Job Satisfaction
  • Outsourcing Human Resources
  • Personnel Selection Process
  • Talent Management
Reviews and Testimonials

I specially recommend the text for its applicability through a selection of the empiric examples of the chapters to highlight the topics analyzed.
