Digital Transformation of Human Resource Management: Digital Applications and Strategic Tools in HRM

Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)

Abstract

The introduction of computers in every field of life as the ever-expanding and widespread communication technology, cause significant changes especially in business life. With the internet and technology changing our lives radically, this change has also affected the management forms of enterprises significantly. In today’s enterprises, it is seen that the traditional methods used for the management of business processes are no longer sufficient. Business processes that are complicated in enterprises have become manageable only by using technology. Rapid developments in the internet technology have also diversified the understanding and operation of human resources management. Data and resource management of enterprises is more systematic and easily accessible in a digital environment. This situation has enabled most of the work done by the human resources department to be carried out in the digital media. Human Resources Management (HRM) has become Digital Human Resources Management (Digital HRM) due to this transformation. Enterprises now use digital human resources systems while carrying out their human resources functions. In this respect, while enterprises offer many innovations in the digital field to consumers, human resources management also applies similar innovations to employees or candidates. Therefore, digital transformation in human resource processes is more effective when used as part of a broader employment process. In this context, this study focuses on the use of digital applications in human resources management of enterprises. However, the reflections of digitization on human resources processes have also been elaborated.
