Electronic Human Resource Management has brought about a paradigm shift in the way operational, relational and transformational functions of HRM are performed. Most of the companies across the globe have digitized their HR practices of recruitment, selection, training, performance management, compensation management, leave and attendance management, time management and other operative and strategic functions either through adoption of integrated software applications like SAP or Oracle People soft, or through adoption of standalone applications like Applicant Tracking System, Recrumax, Learning Management System, Payroll, Performance Management Suite and so on. Through this study an effort was made to analyze the effectiveness of e-HRM in auto-component industry from multi- dimensional perspective. e-recruitment, e-selection, e-learning, e-performance management and e-compensation management are the five core dimensions of e-HRM considered for the study. A research premise was developed and tested based on the opinion survey of around 110 HR practitioners at Senior and middle levels of management from 44 select auto-component firms. The findings explicate that technology integration with HR practices in auto-component industry is yielding significant benefits to the firms in the form of reduced cost per hire, increased applicant volume, and enhanced quality, simplified processes, reduced cycle-time of HR and many others which are discussed in detail in this paper.
