"Technology is everywhere in our world. We see it everyday in activities such as banking, shopping, flying, entertainment, or communicating. We live with technology, and we are surrounded by it. We cannot escape its influence and how it shapes our lives. But work organizations are also as dependent on technology as we all are for our daily activities. Organizations use technology for manufacturing, sales, production, marketing, and yes, for human resources actions and interventions.
So this is the focus of this volume—electonic HR (eHR), a new world order for managing human resources in organizations. A world where scientists and practitioners in the industrial and organizational psychology field have much to say and much to offer in order to promote the effectiveness and optimization of eHR technologies and services. And so the motivation behind this volume—to provide practical advice to those who compose, manage, and develop human resources in work organizations."
—from the Foreword by Eduardo Salas
