e-HRM in Mexico: Adapting innovations for global competitiveness uri icon


  • Purpose - Using information and communication technologies to deliver human resource services (also known as e-HRM) has become an important strategy for firms seeking to achieve a competitive advantage. A case-based study was carried out with the purpose of investigating how four of the most competitive Mexican firms are implementing their e-HRM strategy. Design/methodology/approach - Literature from e-HRM and human resource management in Latin America is reviewed and integrated. Four case studies developed in Mexican firms are depicted. Findings - Evidence suggests that, to fully understand the way e-HRM is used in firms from emerging economies, it is important to take into consideration local idiosyncrasies. Originality/value - This study integrates Latin American dimensions of HR management in the study of e-HRM, a budding research stream that is under-investigated in emerging countries. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
