E-HR learning solutions to boom

Three-quarters
of European employers are planning to improve their e-HR capabilities over the
next two years, a survey by consultants Watson Wyatt reveals.

Results
from the BSE/e-HR survey 2002 show that three out of four companies want to increase
the amount of information held on company intranets and other e-HR solutions.

One-fifth
of the 173 companies surveyed are also planning to spend more than 11 per cent
of their change programme budget on e-HR solutions.

Despite
this, employers are still unsure about the benefits of e-HR and many report low
usage by staff.

Just
over a third of companies report that e-HR had only been slightly effective or
not effective at all in helping them to achieve their goals, 33 per cent state
it had proved moderately effective and just 8 per cent of employers believe
e-HR has been very effective.

The
survey also reveals that UK companies tend to focus on e-HR as a means of
reducing costs, while continental firms are more likely to invest for reasons
of company culture.  www.watsonwyatt.com
