Technology іѕ ubiquitous. Whether уου аrе іn thе industrialized world οr developing markets, a growing number οf people аrе connecting wіth mobile devices lіkе smart cell phones аnd very portable computers lіkе Apple’s iPad.

INTRANET-- For the communication with in the organization. Companies doesn't need extra HR for transmitting the information.

Thіѕ allows people tο communicate асrοѕѕ traditional boundaries within companies οr externally асrοѕѕ thе world.

Thеу hаνе instant access tο information аnd tο people. Smart CEO’s аrе thinking аbουt ways tο leverage thіѕ technology explosion. Many аrе already experimenting wіth virtual teams, non-traditional workplaces, аnd flatter corporate structures.

"OUTSOURCING"--An outsourcing company can often procure services at a lower cost than the buyer because his purchase of HR services such as recruitment, for example, is still fragmented.
Therefore, a provider can take over existing local contracts and realize savings by replacing them with a globally leveraged subcontract purchased at a preferential price. In instances in which the buyer tenders centrally and has already leveraged global scale, this opportunity is significantly reduced.

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

HRMS packages are collections of HR modules that are designed to minimize, if not eliminate, tons of paperwork generated by human resources tasks or functions. They allow for effective and efficient tracking not only of employee but also of company information from start to finish.
Also referred to as HRMS, this kind of software solution aims to help human resources personnel free themselves from the trouble brought by cumbersome paperwork that comes with their daily tasks and functions.

CISCO VIRTUAL OFFICE

Cisco Virtual Office and the Telecommuter
The Cisco Virtual Office and Cisco Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN solutions are secure methods
to extending office-quality services to the remote workforce. Smart businesses are realizing the
benefits that a distributed workforce can provide through both flexibility and productivity for the
workforce as well as a reduction in costs through facilities and real estate. Changing the way
people work also provides benefits to the environment, including:
● Eliminating the need for travel and commuting
● Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions,
pollution, and congestion on the roadways
● Reducing overall net energy consumption
● Reducing costs in energy and materials through
personal work environments over fixed offices

As an example, currently more than 14,000 Cisco employees are using the Cisco Virtual Office
solution (on both a full-time and part-time basis). Through the results of an internal survey, it was
estimated that the average employee saved 2.81 hours of commuting time per week and reduced
up to 2.5 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
In addition, the Cisco Virtual Office solution allows organizations to reduce real estate and energy
costs through the transition to a connected workplace. The connected workplace is a flexible office
environment with enhanced communication capabilities designed to improve employee
collaboration and productivity.

Respected madam
Application Service Providers. Some companies are now turning to application service providers (ASPs), which allow them to rent space on a remote system and let an outside company manage system maintenance, security and upgrades. It's a trend that's particularly suited to small and medium size companies with limited resources. That can save money and free IT staff to handle more urgent matters. And when it is done right, the fact that the software resides outside the organization's boundaries is transparent and secure. For example, US Internetworking Inc., based in Annapolis, Maryland, supports ERP packages from PeopleSoft and Lawson, customer relationship management (CRM) software from Siebel Systems, and e-commerce and messaging applications from Microsoft.

Very good evening mam,

Nowadays worldwide, 54 percent of large enterprises rate management of their virtual server environment as a critical or high IT priority, yet only 45 percent think their companies are doing an effective job in this important area.

1}

First of all I would like to site an example of YANTRAM BPO.

They provide live personal assistance as well as VPA services across US, Canada ,Australia.

They also provide legal and real estate assistance by VPA’s only.

2}

An org called Usfilter used virtual team concept to integrate those employees who were added to the company by mergers and acquisitions. They created companies Legal division by doing so.

3}

Majority of org nowadays are using HRIS that is Human resource information system.

Here is a paradigm for this point which is ERICSSIN INC.

It has added $1 million value to there org last year despite of poor market conditions.

What the company basically did was a three-phase program.

a) first of all they introduced a fully automated compensation plan which they called as E-FLEX. It provides flexible online benefit plans

b) followed by a complex pension administration system

c) it uses internet as well as intranet and managed by WATSON WYYAT.

The other companies like Microsoft, SOS ,Oracle, IBM and Softpeople are making heftier investments in IT so that cost of HR can be minimized. For e.g Sears invested $ 57 million in HR technology with Softpeople n there investment was done in 1991 and it does save $16.5 million annually.
hi mam.....

i m providing u two intranet technologies used these days.
and some of some of technologies impacting HR

introduction ---With advances in network and browser technology companies have been moving more and more of their corporate information resources to Web based applications, making them available to employees via the company intranet.

Companies found that there was a saving in "publication costs"
and an empowerment of employees through the increased availability of corporate procedures and knowledge to enable them to perform their day-to-day tasks

This has benefits, including the move towards "paperless transactions" and
the implied reduction in administrative overheads and the provision of better level of service to employees.

(1)..........B2E: Employee Self Service.............

B2E Employee Self Service (ESS) is an Internet based solution that provides employees with a browser interface to relevant HR data and transactions. This enables employees’ real-time access to their data without leaving their desktop. They can update their personal details, apply for leave, view their pay details and associated benefits, view internal job vacancies and book training and travel.

One report identified a major benefit as the provision of HR services to employees Tangible measures include reductions in administrative staff by 40% and a reduction in transaction costs of 50% and the reduction of processes from two to three days to a few hours

(2)...Portals.......

the term “portal” has been an Internet buzzword that has promised great benefits to organisations.
. To the business user the portal is all about information access and navigation; to a business the portal is all about adding value; to the marketplace the portal is all about new business models; and to the technologist a portal is all about integration. The portal was developed to address problems with the large-scale development of corporate intranets.

example----The access technology can encompass employee interaction centres like hotlines or helpdesks or enterprise portals.
"General Motors(GM)" is one of the leading HR portals implemented in the world and they have proposed three generations of HR portals

The technologies making the biggest impact in the HR market at present are:

* Employee self service
* Workflow technologies
* Vendor management systems
* Applicant tracking systems
* Hiring management systems
* E-recruitment software
* Internal mobility software
* Performance and appraisal management software
* Succession planning software
* Personal development software
* Career planning software
* Package review software
* Executives and key people management software

* INTRANET

The Intranet offers a number of important advantages over printed documents, when it comes to distributing information. Much of the material businesses print for internal use is expensive and time-consuming to produce (not to mention tree-wasting). You can't guarantee that everyone in your organization will receive the most recent, updated versions of internal documents, policies or other information. With the Intranet, however ...

* You can deliver information whenever someone needs it - any time, day or night. Users simply call up the internal Web page whenever they need the data.

* You can guarantee the information is the latest and most accurate available, as long as you keep the information on the Web server current. For example, you could use it to deliver daily sales projections.

* Updating information is easy. Information is posted on the Intranet using HyperText Markup Language (HTML). Because HTML is simple to learn, you don't have to hire a "techie" to update your information - you can simply train the same people who would have previously on paper and distributed it.

* You can cross-link information to other files using Hyper Text links. For example, you could cross-link your product literature to technical specifications and pricing information. To find specifications or pricing, users would simply click on a keyword such as "tecspec" or "price," in the product literature, and the system would automatically take them to the desired information. You can even crosslink information to other files on other servers-whether those servers are down the hall, down the street or across the country.
Following are the three generations of intranet given by General Motors (GM)

hello mam..

Maximizing your company’s investments in eHR technology means keeping a focus on business goals and improvements to HR quality or efficiency. In most cases, the eHR solutions that have the greatest impact on the budget are the ones that affect the most people the most often like shaving a few dollars off the transaction that is performed 1,000 times per month

for ex -:it Provide self-service answers to frequently asked questions,

What happens to my 401(k) money if I leave? It s a simple question. A five-minute phone call. And, if the company is big enough, that question can cost $100,000 in calls over a few months.

Simple questions don t require the individual attention of expensive professionals. Even some complicated questions don t require that attention. Organizations can save significantly by using eHR to disseminate information effectively. For example:

" Use the Web to post the answers to Frequently Asked Questions. Even regular updates will be less time-consuming than answering the phone.

" Move from static answers to personalized ones by using a knowledge-based tool to categorize and deliver information in a self-service environment.

" Put time-off activity and balances right on the pay stub. Put pay-stub information online, for 24x7 access. Leveraging an established communications vehicle like the pay stub for a seemingly unimportant detail like this can provide unexpected savings.

Technology Affecting Human Resources Management

Human Resources Management is an area that is constantly growing and changing to meet the new demands and challenges of a forever-evolving work force. What was once labeled "personnel" and associated with a reputation for being highly administrative and dealing solely with lots of paperwork, the field has transformed itself into the strategic entity it is today. The changes, however, haven't stopped there. While bringing both pros and cons along with it, technology has spearheaded into the forefront of human resources management.

* Technology Affecting Human Resources Management
Technological advancements have improved the ways we communicate, revolutionized how we learn, and expanded our capabilities. Whether it is the invention of a new machine, moderations to an existing one, or the discovery of a new application for an existing technology, the field is forever growing and expanding. In the early stages, it may seem like more of a hassle than it's worth to keep up with these changingtrends. It always proves worthwhile in the end, however, as new technologies bring both increased proficiency and productivity.
As increased proficiency and productivity are main goals of any human resources personnel, it's no wonder technological advancements are continually being embraced in this field where the mission is always to do more with less. In order to make the most of their highly protracted time, workers in HR are using technologies such as computer-assisted interviewing and employee self-service, as well as a variety of other technological tools, to make the most out of their time--time that's already scarce.

Hello Mam,

I’m going to talk about two technological developments that have made the job of HR managers easy – the E recruitment softwares and Applicant Tracking System.

1)E recruitment Softwares

Recruitment software plays an indispensable part in reducing a staffing agency’s administrative burden. An enterprise's HR department can be freed of its day-to-day mundane activities and can allot more time to concentrate on their prime focus of business and goals.

It is an online web application that integrates an interactive career center to corporate website. They are generally built on PHP/MYSQL/Linux Platform that enables to quickly deploy a fully functional career site customized to requirement.

It automates the entire hiring process from creating job requisitions to posting job requirements, attracting candidates, qualifying job seekers; resume processing, and final selection.

From easy-to-use online application forms to easy-to-search resume databases, ATS can handle entire candidate tracking. Many companies with complex recruitment requirements have implemented this system to streamline the recruitment cycle. This applicant tracking system has multiple modules and is customized to meet specific needs.

2) Applicant Tracking System

An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is a software application that enables the electronic handling of recruitment needs. An ATS can be implemented on an Enterprise or small business level, depending on the needs of the company. They are designed for recruitment tracking purposes.

The principal function of an ATS is to provide a central location and database for a company's recruitment efforts. ATS are built to better assist management of resumes and applicant information. Data is either collected from internal applications via the ATS front-end, located on the company website or is extracted from applicants on job boards. The majority of job and resume boards (Monster, Hotjobs, Career Builder) have partnerships with ATS software providers to provide parsing support and ease of data migration from one system to another. Modern ATS systems, such as threehats, allow applicants to be sourced from the companies own database of past job applicants.

Another benefit of an applicant tracking system is analyzing and coordinating recruitment efforts - managing the conceptual structure known as Human Capital. A corporate career site or company specific job board module may be offered, allowing companies to provide opportunities to internal candidates prior to external recruitment efforts. Candidates may be identified via preexisting data or through information garnered through other means. This data is typically stored for search and retrieval processes. ATS systems have expanded ATS offerings that include off-site, encrypted resume and data storage, legally required by Equal Opportunity Employment Laws.

Hello mam,

Discussed below are systems that make job HR department easy.

1) Vendor Management System

A Vendor Management System is a web based application that helps organizations to manage and procure staffing services temporarily or permanently or on contract basis. Vendor Management Systems generally includes features such as consolidate billing, order distribution, and advanced reporting features which out-classes manual system and processes.

Other innovative web-based Vendor Management Systems centralizes the complicated issues involved in the staffing process. The application provides the companies with instant and complete access to a large volume of affordable and qualified human resources, and this is readily available when they want to quickly acquire staff or manage long term growth. They are developed to control the entire staffing procedures, management process, and to eliminate the inefficiencies and problems that can occur in managing a workforce. This helps in building and maintaining a database of vendors to benefit a particular company.

Typical benefits of VMS includes:
• Streamlined requisition approval workflow
• Reduced time-to-fill cycle times
• Bill rate standardization / management
• Optimization of supplier base
• Consolidated invoicing
• Improved security and asset management
• Availability of vendor performance metrics
• Visibility and cost control over maverick spend
• 10-20% reduction in contingent labor spend

2) Performance and appraisal management softwares

They enable mapping of employees as well as role competencies to ensure goal alignment and cascading goals. As an automated, employee self service system, they improve performance through frequent reviews and feedback to the employee and gives time to managers to correct performance in time.
Collating individual employee ratings for elimination of the several biases, normalization of ratings and eventually translating performance ratings into bonuses, variable pay, increments and promotions is be a daunting task that takes over the lives of the HR team.

Benefits to the Organization
• Create, execute and analyze an automated, effortless and efficient performance appraisal process.
• At-a-glance goal-setting to align individual goals to the organization's vision.

Benefits to HR
• Flexibility to choose from KRA, competence or Balance Scorecard method based performance management systems.
• Track deviations in performance at a macro level and plan course correction
• Save HR time by executing a paperless appraisal process.

Benefits to Employees and Managers
• Ensures confidentiality of the appraisal process
• File appraisal forms and get review results online
• Keep track of career growth for better planning
• Get easy access to KRAs to keep performance on track

Good Evening, Mam

1) Web Portals: Information overload only seems to grow worse. Intranets have only contributed to the problem by dumping too much useless information into workers' laps. Portals and desktop dashboards--which serve up relevant and desired content--can go a long way toward alleviating the problem.

2) The Mobile Web: As PDAs and digital phones become a fixture in the corporate world; the next step in the evolution of the devices is wireless access to the Web and to corporate data. Already, a wave of Internet sites, offer access to news, personal information, and more through PDAs and the mini-browsers on Web-enabled phones relying on wireless application protocol (WAP).

3) E-Procurement: Within many organizations, procurement represents one of the last bastions of inefficiency. Employees place orders for everything from paper clips to chemicals through a disorganized network of suppliers. That's changing fast. Paper catalogs, stacks of forms, and dealing with numerous vendors are giving way to online ordering. It's quick, it's efficient, and it saves a ton of money.
By installing electronic systems that automate the purchase process - and in some cases, find the lowest prices - forward-thinking HR departments are ushering in a new era of speed, efficiency, and cost savings.

Good evening mam,

Here I am talking about e-HRM.

e-HRM is a way of implementing HR strategies, policies, and practices in organizations through a conscious and directed support of web-technology-based channels. The word 'implementing' in this context has a broad meaning, such as making something work, putting something into practice, or having something realized. E-HRM, therefore, is a concept - a way of 'doing' HRM.

Advantages of the e-HRM business solution:

1.Gradual implementation

2.Adaptability to any client

3.Collection of information as the basis for strategic decision-making

4.Integral support for the management of human resources and all other basic and support processes within the company

5.Prompt insight into reporting and analysis

6.A more dynamic workflow in the business process, productivity and employee satisfaction

7.A decisive step towards a paperless office

8.Lower business costs

Companies already implemented e-HR Strategy:

1.Dow Chemicals

2.ABN-AMRO

3.Ford Motor Company

4.IBM

Hello Mam ,

CONCEPT OF eHR and ESS

eHR is a means of electronically integrating and communicating HR-related data, information, tools and transactions. For mid-size businesses it simply means evolving traditional human resources transaction processing methods by using powerful HR software combined with two widely available and inexpensive business communication

3

technologies: E-mail and the Internet. The first step in automating HR is substituting software for manual paperwork, file cabinets, and spreadsheets. eHR is the next logical step in HR automation – that is, using intelligent email alerts and Web-based Employee Self-Service to automate the key information and process flows that are critical to successfully managing your human capital. eHR basically says to the small and mid size business: “You already invested in e-mail and the Internet. They are not expensive or complex. Why not put them to work for you in HR?”

Today's labout force, more importantly, is diverse in terms of ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, disability and other cultural factors. The managerial challenge is leaning how totake advantage of this diversity while fostering cooperation and cohesiveness among dissimilar employees.
The impact of new technology on the total number of jobs available has been quite devastating. It has placed power in the hands of small group of ellite people in most large scale orgnisations.

Hello ma'm

Technology may contribute to performance management and thus to appraisal satisfaction in two primary ways. First, technology may facilitate measuring an individual’s performance via computer monitoring activities. This frequently occurs as an unobtrusive and rote mechanical process that relies on minimal input from individuals beyond their task performance.

A second approach to technology and performance management changes the emphasis so that technology becomes a tool to facilitate the process of writing reviews or generating performance feedback. Exa-mples here include multi-rater appraisals that supervisors or team members generate online, as well as off-the-shelf appraisal software packages that actually construct an evaluation for a manager. This particular technological approach occurs more often in the context of jobs that involve personal judgement, high discretion, and open-ended tasks for which real-time performance monitoring is not an option.

Automate HR portals and access to be provided to employees on line- With so many employees per organisation things have changed drastically and it become imperative that more and more automation is resorted to, to avoid manual errors and goof ups by HR.

One company that saw the benefits of keeping up with new technology is WORKSource Inc. To meet the challenge of handling 100 new employees, WORKSource Inc. acquired Web-based technology programs from GHG Corp. like electronic pay stub, electronic timesheet software, time-off system, and human resource information system (“Tips,” 2006). By adapting these new programs, WORKSource was able to reduce waste and cost.

Also, In order for Shaw’s to better manage its workforce, the company decided it was time to centralize the HR operations. After looking at different options, Shaw’s decided to implement an Employee Self Service (ESS) system. The use of self-service applications creates a positive situation for HR. ESS gives HR more time to focus on strategic issues, such as workforce management, succession planning, and compensation management, while at the same time improving service to employees and managers, and ensuring that their data is accurate. With this solution, employees have online access to forms, training material, benefits information and other payroll related information (Koven, 2002). By giving employees access to their personal information and the ability to update or change their information as needed, HR was given more time to focus on other issues

One company that implemented a HRIS system is Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. (TAMS). TAMS put all employee benefits information online and created an open enrollment option when TAMS changed healthcare providers. Almost immediately upon rolling out the UltiPro portal [new HRIS technology] to employees, TAMS began seeing improvements, with an estimated 70% increase in open enrollment efficiency (Wojcik, 2004). By determining the efficiency of the new program, TAMS was able to realize the benefits of the new HRIS system.

IBM has a paperless online enrollment plan for all of its employees. Not only has the online enrollment saved the company 1.2 million per year on printing and mailing costs, the employees enjoy working with the online plan.IBM was able to cut costs and give employees the freedom to discover their benefits on their own time and pace.

HR and Technology
Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) provide a link between human resource management and information technology. IT is being used by HR to benefit almost every aspect of its day-to-day operations. With HR technology constantly improving and costs continuing to decline in many instances, it is inevitable that implementation of these applications will continue to rise.

Advantages Of Technology in HR -

• Employee self-service is giving employees access to details about their payroll and pension information from any web-based location along with the ability to change information.
• CV’s can be send online which are then forwarded to a centralized pool for the recruiters to evaluate.
• Software can be deployed to manage areas such as internal mobility, appraisal management, succession planning, package review and personal development.
• E-recruitment and performance management software are also helping to dramatically improve HR’s ability to carry out effective people relationship management (PRM), and improve their organization’s employer brand.
• It also enables them to move away from subjective people management to objective and efficient people management to the great benefit of the employee/candidate.
• Applicant tracking systems provide a cost-effective answer to these common problems.
• Reduces lot of paper work.

Disadvantages of technology in HR -

• The problem can arise when organizations rely more on process technology as an alternative to human interaction.
• There can be the loss of quality talent.
• Most organizations are not measuring the ROI for HR technology systems, and thus some are finding making the case for HR technology problematic.
However, the human element will always remain a vital part since HR is all about people management, which requires human interaction and face-to-face contact.
So, the balance must be maintained between IT and the human touch.

Top HR technologies

The technologies making the biggest impact in the HR market at present are:
• Employee self service
• Workflow technologies
• Vendor management systems
• Applicant tracking systems
• Hiring management systems
• E-recruitment software
• Internal mobility software
• Performance and appraisal management software
• Succession planning software
• Personal development software
• Career planning software
• Package review software
• Executives and key people management software

The above technologies are used by all major companies nowdays like Trident, Infosys, Wipro, Tata Consultancy services.

Hello Mam,

Technological effect can be clearly seen when computers hit the corporate world,lots of downsizing took place because computers could do most of the jobs.A job is done by 2-4 people could be cut to one by just a single person e.g. An Accounting package could be used to cater for 3 jobs or so since manual entries and paper work was reduced.
Outsourcing of work also help to cut down cost.
For U.S based company it is more costly to hire a person in U.S than India,so most companies outsource their work on cheaper places.
Main impact of VPA's is reducing Jobs. because there is no need to hire persons permanent for work. companies reduce job positions because they call VPA's for work by paying less money.
Technological advancements have improved the ways we communicate, revolutionized how we learn, and expanded our capabilities. Whether it is the invention of a new machine, moderation to an existing one, or the discovery of a new application for an existing technology, the field is forever growing and expanding.HR functions are performed in the advent of high technology advances in conducting business processes over high-speed communications channels, termed e-business in today's market.
hello, mam

Technology has great impact on HR.......

Technology may contribute to performance management and thus to appraisal satisfaction in two primary ways. First, technology may facilitate measuring an individual’s performance via computer monitoring activities. This frequently occurs as an unobtrusive and rote mechanical process that relies on minimal input from individuals beyond their task performance. Jobs that incorporate this type of appraisal technology are frequently scripted or repetitious and involve little personal judgment or discretion. Working in a call centre or performing data entry are examples. In this instance, the very act of performing a job simultaneously becomes the measure of how well a jobholder accomplishes it. Keystrokes, time on task, or numbers of calls made are recorded and at once become both job content and appraisal content.

A second approach to technology and performance management changes the emphasis so that technology becomes a tool to facilitate the process of writing reviews or generating performance feedback. Exa-mples here include multi-rater appraisals that supervisors or team members generate online, as well as off-the-shelf appraisal software packages that actually construct an evaluation for a manager. This particular technological approach occurs more often in the context of jobs that involve personal judgement, high discretion, and open-ended tasks for which real-time performance monitoring is not an option.

Again, it is critical to consider these aspects of technology use in performance management within a framework of appraisal satisfaction. We will address the second application of technology to performance management in the next section of this chapter.

In 1993, computerised performance reports evaluated the work of approximately ten million workers in the United States (Hawk, 1994). Although estimates vary, by the end of the twentieth century this number may have reached at least twenty-seven million workers (DeTienne & Abbot, 1993; Staunton & Barnes-Farrell, 1996). Computerised performance monitoring (CPM) technology facilitates data collection by counting the number of work units completed per time period, number and length of times a terminal is left idle, number of keystrokes, error rates, time spent on various tasks, and so fourth.

Hello Mam,

In today’s Internet and Technology, entire world, HR departments can leverage technology to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Bluefin’s Self Service Starter Package helps to achieve this. It empowers employees to self service & manages their personal information & provides manager’s immediate access to vital analytical reports and team information. It provides role based self service functions and significantly reduces the time HR spends on repetitive administration tasks.

1. Reduce HR costs through greater efficiency and increased productivity: SAP Self Service lower costs by reducing the time HR spends on administrative activities such as manual paper based changes to employees address details, bank details and other data. Some companies have seen up to 50% reduction in HR administration costs per employee.

 ESS(Employee Self Service)

• Maintain personal information such as bank, emergency contact details

• View remaining leave entitlement & initiate leave requests



 MSS( Managers Self Service)

• Access teams and employees data for example: a list of team members and their promotions, summery of employee information and so on.

• Reporting – enables managers to execute pre defined reports e.g salary reporting

• Workflow approval for leave requests and cancellation

• Company branded portal

2. Companies are targeting employee fitness to contain health care costs creating individualized plans using wearable technology and websites. Companies such as Intel, Papa John International, Timberland and International Paper are signing up for memberships on websites that provide information about fitness and nutrition. They are conducting health screenings & tracing staff’s workouts. Some companies are even giving workers pedometers to track how many steps they take. The main reason is to contain employees medical costs as companies have to pay huge amounts to insurers for health costs of their employees so they can reduce their health care expenses.

• Shape Up the Nation online services from virgin group is another service which have helped in participation in wellness programs by offering incentives to employees to reduce their health care costs.

3. Some other factors can be:

• Shared services and outsourcing

• Master data management

Hello Mam,


Technology is very helpful in reducing the cost in different organizations. below are the examples of technologies which are used in organizations....


INTERNET-
The Internet, based on computer technology, has drawn a great deal of interest in the field of human resources. This paper will project, given today's attitude toward Human Resources departments just to what extent Internet technologies will impact HR departments in the future. To do that, it is essential to provide an overview of the current status of software and the Internet.
Using the Boolean terms "Human Resources Management Software" gives a more reasonable universe of some 20,000 sites featuring software for Human resource management.
It is already known that the computer and the Internet are being used to automate most of the related tasks of an HR department of any organization. The automated systems in place strive to reduce the paper work and streamline all the functions of the Personnel Department while interacting with other departments or with other branches of the organization.

VIDEOCONFRENSING-
This report analyses the various influences of videoconferencing, both positive and negative, and evaluates its usefulness in organisations. One of the major points of discussion is how face-to-face meetings, whether virtual or physical, have been affected by the embracing of this new technology by various organisations and groups.

Reduce HR costs through greater efficiency and increased productivity: SAP Self Service lower costs by reducing the time HR spends on administrative activities such as manual paper based changes to employees address details, bank details and other data. Some companies have seen up to 50% reduction in HR administration costs per employee.

as technology improves
organisations are using HR information systems to support and manage an increasing number of HR processes and functions. Where e-HR was at one time simply a tool used for administrative and recording processes, it can now encompass a variety of applications, for example recruitment and selection, e-learning, flexible benefits. It also supports integrated call centres, shared services and self-service environments. It can be an important aspect of any changes to the structural design and operation of the HR function.

The research has involved a comprehensive review of the literature in this area and ten in-depth case study reviews with a range of stakeholders in a variety of organisations within the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, including Nortel, BskyB, Crown Prosecution Service, Cancer Research UK.

There is no doubt that the implementation of IT within HR is a complex matter and the implications and impact will differ according to the nature of both the organisation and the technology. However, there are a number of principles that hold true across organisations and technological solutions.

The focus of the research project has been on the use and impact of technology on three main areas:

* the efficient delivery and support of HR activity and processes
* employee communications and engagement
* the changing role and skills of HR and other managers.

Benefits for you:
- practical examples and lessons learned from detailed case studies
- an outline of the process involved in planning for and developing and HRIS
- an examination of the drivers for introducing new technology
- guidance on preparing a business case.

THE CONCEPT OF e-HR

The e-HR solutions that have the biggest budget impact are the ones that affect the most people the most often. That's why it's smart to focus on transactions that are performed thousands of times a year.

Most companies have added various new e-HR technologies and applications at different times, resulting in each employee having a handful of passwords and user IDs. A simple inconvenience, until you consider the fact that every employee call to IT costs an average of $33, according to Forrester Research. Thats $33 every time someone forgets a password to access e-mail. Another $33 when he can't sign on to the intranet. And another $33 when he realizes theres an HR portal but has no idea how to get into his personalized information there.
the solution:
Create a single sign-on approach. One password and one ID for each employee. It reduces IT time, and it simplifies the creation and deletion of employee sign-on data.
Companies not ready to tackle a single sign-on project might start by adding a password-recovery feature to their Web-based applications, allowing employees to retrieve passwords by e-mail or other form of credential


Maximizing your company's investments in e-HR technology means keeping a focus on business goals and improvements to HR quality or efficiency. In most cases, the e-HR solutions that have the greatest impact on the budget are the ones that affect the most people the most often like shaving a few dollars off the transaction that is performed 1,000 times per month. Sticking to the small details like those cited above may seem dull, but the results are definitely exciting.

Good Evening MAM,

Impact of Technology on HR

New skills required: As new technologies are developed and implemented there is an urgent need to upgrade existing employee’s skills and knowledge if the organization wants to survive and flourish in a competitive world. Additionally, there will be growing demand or workers with more sophisticated training and skills especially in emerging hot sectors like telecommunications, hospitality, retailing, banking, insurance, biotechnology and financial services. For example service sector employees require different skills than those utilized in manufactured. They need strong interpersonal and communications skill as well as the ability to handle customer complaints in a flexible way.

. Recent technological advances as we all known in computers, lasers, robots, satellite networks, fiber optics , biometrics cloning, and other related areas have paved the way for significant operational improvements

HR are using technologies such as computer-assisted interviewing and employee self-service, as well as a variety of other technological tools, to make the most out of their time--time that's already scarce.

Technology affects the HR function by the following ways

1. With the advent of technology, jobs tend to become more intellectual or upgraded.

2. The employees who pick up and acquaint themselves with new technology, the job will be challenging and rewarding.

3. Technology lays down the requirements for much of the human interaction in organizations.

4. Jobholders will become highly professionalized and knowledgeable.

Organisations are greatly influenced by changes taking place in internal as well as external environment. Today's labout force, more importantly, is diverse in terms of ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, disability and other cultural factors. The managerial challenge is leaning how totake advantage of this diversity while fostering cooperation and cohesiveness among dissimilar employees.

The impact of new technology on the total number of jobs available has been quite devastating. It has placed power in the hands of small group of ellite people in most large scale orgnisations. The new technology generally compel people to learn a new set of skills altogether and also learn to work together in project teams time and again.

Top HR technologies
The technologies making the biggest impact in the HR market at present are:

* Employee self service
* Workflow technologies
* Vendor management systems
* Applicant tracking systems
* Hiring management systems
* E-recruitment software
* Internal mobility software
* Performance and appraisal management software
* Succession planning software
* Personal development software
* Career planning software
* Package review software
* Executives and key people management software

Human Resources information technology is essential for companies to manage their benefits plans and their employee information. Benefits management technology is no longer a “nice to have,” but a necessity to help HR manage both a sea of information and the money spent on benefits plans, as HR faces limited resources and constantly changing data.

The information technology can save everyone time and expense once he or she learns how to use it efficiently. Human Resource will be impacted more than any other department.

Human Resource Department must be a leader in the implementation of emerging technologies. HR departments are harnessing technology to meet their goals to enhance efficiency and reduce cost, but most importantly, they are providing better service to their employees ("HR Logical").

Systems are being implemented in the organizations that allow Human Resource Departments to enhance their efficiency for transportation of data, enabling them to store, manage, and analyze critical employee data without requiring the user to actually maintain the data.

Technologies those make impact are:-

E-HR

Enterprise web 2.0

Benefits administration

HRIS

HRMS

Social media

Cloud computing

CRM management

Technology may contribute to performance management and thus to appraisal satisfaction in two primary ways.

First, technology may facilitate measuring an individual’s performance via computer monitoring activities. This frequently occurs as an unobtrusive and rote mechanical process that relies on minimal input from individuals beyond their task performance. Jobs that incorporate this type of appraisal technology are frequently scripted or repetitious and involve little personal judgment or discretion. Working in a call centre or performing data entry are examples. In this instance, the very act of performing a job simultaneously becomes the measure of how well a jobholder accomplishes it. Keystrokes, time on task, or numbers of calls made are recorded and at once become both job content and appraisal content.

A second approach to technology and performance management changes the emphasis so that technology becomes a tool to facilitate the process of writing reviews or generating performance feedback. Exa-mples here include multi-rater appraisals that supervisors or team members generate online, as well as off-the-shelf appraisal software packages that actually construct an evaluation for a manager. This particular technological approach occurs more often in the context of jobs that involve personal judgement, high discretion, and open-ended tasks for which real-time performance monitoring is not an option.

Technology has great impact on flexibility for HR or reduction in the cost of employees.

1. e-HR reduces workload

HR technology is accomplishing its objectives, two studies show. The most important of these for HR managers who are working their way up to business partner are applications that enhance employee acquisition and development, succession planning, and performance measurements and are valuable for more than just cost-savings features.

Other e-HR initiatives have a positive impact on data accuracy and quality improvement, and more cost-effective HR department operations.

Since research and results will help you make a strong business case for your own HR technology initiatives, here are hard data results from these two studies.

HR department operations. Fully 60% of HR managers report that Web-based employee self-service (ESS) has reduced their department's administrative workload, says the Towers Perrin sixth annual HR Service Delivery Survey. Manager self-service has eased HR's administrative burden for nearly half of respondents, shows the study of nearly 200 of the world's leading organizations.

In addition, HR departments have been able to eliminate other HR service delivery 'channels,' such as voice response systems and paper-based transactions, boosting hard-dollar savings through productivity improvements notes Thomas Keebler, a Towers Perrin principal and expert in HR service delivery solutions.

2. Human Resource Outsourcing Services

Human Resource Outsourcing is a process in which a company uses the services of a third party to take care of its HR functions. A company may outsource a few or all of its HR related activities and this help businesses to cut costs, concentrate on core business and ensuring employee satisfaction.

1.Human resources professionals are upping their reliance on technology to manage safety and security information and functions. Workplace safety and security can benefit from technology by facilitating acquisition and analysis of injury and illness data, injury costs per employee, training documentation and management, performance management, electronic communications, digital access key log-in information, security camera data management and identity theft protection.

2.Biometrics devices that use fingerprints or other physical traits for identification can help solve some employee discipline problems and protect sensitive data. Time clocks are one of a growing number of workplace applications of biometrics.

3. Technology is helping in eliminating the need for travel and commuting in CISCO SERVICES,which reduces the cost of recruitment

4.During the last decade, the Internet has played a growing role in external recruiting. Large, all-purpose online job boards quickly found a place in recruitment. Meanwhile, niche sites catering to specific industries and demographic niches such as women and Asians won favor. Online corporate job sites and intranets have become key recruiting tools, allowing employers to get the word out about job openings quickly and inexpensively.

4.Employers also are using technology to market job openings more strategically. Many capitalize on emerging technology like RSS--real simple syndication--allowing online postings to reach job seekers via e-mail or text message as soon as a new job is posted. Others are enhancing traditional online listings with videos and podcasts.

5.Once an application comes in, many HR professionals tap desktop search engines such as Google to check backgrounds. A few employers check out workers' private blogs and entries they may have placed on social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace. Others sign up for help from computerized background screening services.

6.Once a new hire comes on board, many HR professionals are relying on electronic onboarding systems to handle tasks including assigning packing passes, computers, uniforms, e-mail addresses and security badges. Some employers--particularly those with a scattered workforce--are capitalizing on computerized learning systems for orientation and to deliver coaching on topics from sexual harassment avoidance to conflict resolution.

EXAMPLES

*In the USA, outsourcing of functions in hospitals not directly related to the work of doctors and nurses (care of patients) has substantially increased the productivity of the hospitals, and provided new opportunities for service employees.

*In 2010, knowledge and information-based activities contributed to almost half of the gross national product and employed 47% of the American workforce . One could postulate that those numbers have increased over the last 30 years. As information has become an increasingly important feature in the business world, new technologies have become available to facilitate its use and dissemination. This has led to an ever expanding and evolving field of information technology (IT).

*Technology is also playing a pivotal role in the controversy regarding illegal immigration. Tens of thousands of employers are voluntarily using e-Verify, an Internet-powered tool offered free by the Social Security Administration and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to verify a match between employees' names, Social Security numbers and immigration information.

hello mam,

I’m going to talk about two technological developments that have made the job of HR managers easy.

1) .Technology threatens to replace human interaction in every venue of our lives. We telecommute; correspond with colleagues, friends and family via e-mail and instant-messaging; order groceries; and purchase virtually every good and service online. Technology-driven service is generally convenient, consistent and reliable. Although the initial investment and implementation can be costly, technology solutions generally have a short return on investment cycle and create economic efficiencies in the long term. The challenge is to motivate customers toward high-tech delivery channels by making them convenient, user-friendly and at a reduced cost over personal service options.

Banking customers ready for humans to be replaced with ATMs, Internet banking and Voice Response Units.In the early 1990s, Canadian Imperial Bank, in partnership with Safeway, failed at its attempt to operate SelectBank kiosks in Safeway stores where customers could only bank via ATM or online. On the other hand, Atlanta-based NetBank, founded in 1996, has built assets of almost $3 billion exclusively via the Internet. There is no doubt that more customers are using electronic delivery channels than ever before, but 92 percent of U.S. households visit a branch office at least once per month and 50 percent consider the branch their primary contact point, according to a recent TowerGroup report. As a result of this, many banks are renewing their focus on retail merchandising in branches and are recruiting more sales-oriented individuals for branches and call centers to maximize sales opportunities during these customer visits.With this work done within few minutes and no interaction with employees.

2).Softwares used in banking sector like "TALLY,MICROBANK5+,TITANIUM ORE,MONEYMAN,BANCADO software" includes modules for customer information, deposit accounts, certificates of deposit, installment loans, commercial loans, mortgage loans, general ledger, automated clearing house, and safe deposit box billing etc. works on computer , minimize the task of an employee and reduction in cost of employee.

technology in designing can also reduce cost:
Companies can slash costs by improving the design process at its beginning. Design for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA) software includes a design-formanufacture module, with which engineers obtain early cost estimates on parts or products, and a design-for-assembly module, which they employ to determine the best methods to manufacture products.

hello mam..

Maximizing your company’s investments in eHR technology means keeping a focus on business goals and improvements to HR quality or efficiency. In most cases, the eHR solutions that have the greatest impact on the budget are the ones that affect the most people the most often like shaving a few dollars off the transaction that is performed 1,000 times per month

for ex -:it Provide self-service answers to frequently asked questions,

What happens to my 401(k) money if I leave? It s a simple question. A five-minute phone call. And, if the company is big enough, that question can cost $100,000 in calls over a few months.
Simple questions don t require the individual attention of expensive professionals. Even some complicated questions don t require that attention. Organizations can save significantly by using eHR to disseminate information effectively. For example:
" Use the Web to post the answers to Frequently Asked Questions. Even regular updates will be less time-consuming than answering the phone.
" Move from static answers to personalized ones by using a knowledge-based tool to categorize and deliver information in a self-service environment.
" Put time-off activity and balances right on the pay stub. Put pay-stub information online, for 24x7 access. Leveraging an established communications vehicle like the pay stub for a seemingly unimportant detail like this can provide unexpected savings.

Hello Ma'am

The core HR responsibilities are as diverse as recruitment, oversight of legal and regulatory compliance, benefits administration, and the safeguarding of confidential employee information cannot be carried out effectively without high-tech tools.

These days technology is advancing at an unstoppable rate, especially when it comes to information technology. While human resources professionals can undoubtedly benefit from new software developments, there’s clearly the potential that increased automation could lead to some uncertainty about the 'human' element of their job.

*Some within the industry feel that technology is one factor that is bringing about a major change in the role of HR departments.

*HR professionals also rely on automated systems to direct employee benefit contributions. Such systems automatically direct a portion of workers' pay toward their retirement savings plans unless employees opt out,which reduces the manual work leading to decrease in work force.

* HR functions are performed in the advent of high technology advances in conducting business processes over high-speed communications channels, termed e-business in today's market.'

*The growth of electronic communication and Internet has made the work very easy. HR professionals, working in tandem with information technologists, now rely on policy and software to monitor data flow, block inappropriate data such as pornography, and prevent the leaking of trade secrets.

*HR can start to use social media as an employee engagement tool.

The use of new technology and methods reduce the work of HR resulting in decrease in the work force requirement . Hence, it reduce the cost.
