    Abstract

    This paper presents results from an exploratory study in a governmental organization on the strategic value of e-HRM. By means of a questionnaire as well as through face-to-face interviews with HR professionals, line managers and non-managerial employees data were collected on two generally acclaimed strategic advantages of e-HRM: changing the role of HR towards a business partner, and increasing the time available for strategic HR issues. The data presented reveals that indeed to a large extent these strategic advantages are realized, however regarding some advantages certain conditions need to be met. The results of this paper contribute to the ongoing debate on e-HRM and its strategic value.
