Abstract

We 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.
