Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich BWL - Personal und Organisation, Note: 1,7, AKAD Fachhochschule Stuttgart, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Electronic Human Resource Management (E-HRM) ist seit einigen Jahren ein neuer Trend im Personalmanagement. Viele Unternehmen sind auf dem Weg, ihre Personalarbeit zu elektronisieren." Dabei geht es allerdings nicht nur um die Veranderung der eingesetzten Medien, es geht vielmehr um die Verbesserung und Beschleunigung der Personalprozesse. Unter Electronic Human Resource Management versteht man die Unterstutzung aller Funktionsfelder des Personalmanagements durch neue Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien, vor allem das Inter- und Intranet, aber auch nicht netzwerkfahiger Anwendungen. Es ist dem Begriff des E-Business zuzuordnen. E-Business bezog sich ursprunglich darauf, strategische Unternehmensprozesse neu zu gestalten, um die Herausforderung eines neuen Marktes zu bewaltigen . Aufgrund der zwei unterschiedlichen Bedeutungen des Wortes Business, einerseits Handel," andererseits Unternehmen," lassen sich auch zwei Bedeutungen fur den Begriff E-Business" ableiten: elektronischer Handel und elektronisches Unternehmen. Letzteres umfasst die integrierte Ausfuhrung aller automatisierbarer Geschaftsprozesse eines Unternehmens mit Hilfe Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien. Wie bereits im vorherigen Abschnitt erwahnt, reiht sich hier auch das E-HRM ein. HRM wird einerseits synonym mit Personalwirtschaft verwendet, andererseits druckt es einen eher strategisch-wissenschaftlichen, reflexiven Zugriff auf die Gestaltung der personalwirtschaftlichen Prozesse aus"
