Bringing HR into the Information Age: Why the Status Quo Isn't Going to Get Us There
AbstractWe surveyed practitioners about the use of HR technology in their organizations and expectations for future changes. We then surveyed faculty about the coverage of HR technology in their curriculum. While most practitioners reported they use technology primarily for administrative purposes, fully 82% felt their companies would be migrating in the next five years toward greater use of HRIS. By contrast, HR curricula are focused primarily on teaching one or two specific HRIS packages or general concepts related to selection and implementation of HRIS. These findings provide a wake-up call to HR educators with respect to educating future HR managers.
