    Abstract

    E–HRM research with an international perspective is scarce. One of the ways to deal with this lack of international e–HRM research is to 'borrow' from one of its more mature support disciplines, information systems (IS) research. The study presented in this article started from the assumption that the IS literature has a rich history of research with an international focus. For that reason we carried out a literature review in order to find all articles on IS in multinational corporations (MNCs) published since 2006. A final set of 53 articles was read and categorised, resulting in a general analytical framework. We used this framework to review the international e–HRM literature. This confirmed the 'richness' of research on IS in MNCs and showed that e–HRM in MNC research has almost only focused on the post–implementation issues. We conclude that the E–HRM in MNC literature can learn from the IS field, but additional research in this specific field is definitely required
