I am glad to inform the academic community that a new teaching textbook on Electronic/Digital HRM, that is suitable to be adopted for teaching in advanced undergraduate and graduate programs will be available from Routledge, UK sometime in June, 2018. See

As with other parts of business, technology is having a profound effect on the world of work and management of human resources. Technology is a key enabler for faster, cheaper and better delivery of HR services and in some cases can have a transformational as well as unintended negative effect.

Designed for the digital era, e-HRM is one of the first textbooks on these developments. It incorporates the most current and important HR Technology related topics in five distinct parts under one umbrella written by leading scholars drawn from across the world. All the chapters have a uniform structure, and pay equal attention to theory and practice with an applied focus. Learning resources of the book include chapter-wise learning objectives, case study, debate on related burning issues, and a companion website.
