Reengineering Human Resources Human resources management is on the brink of radical transformation and the instrument of that transformation is information technology. Starting with this provocative premise, Reengineering Human Resources offers human resource professionals an eye-opening introduction to the changes that are about to affect the organization, staffing, and delivery of human resource services. For those who are prepared to take full advantage of the new technology, it will mean dramatic increases in productivity and impressive decreases in cost, as well as vastly improved services and greater client satisfaction. In a real sense, the field of human resources is undergoing a revolution. Written by management expert Lyle. M. Spencer specifically for human resource professionals, this book shows how new technologies, reengineered work processes, and retrained employees will bring about this revolution. Although it assumes no technical expertise, Reengineering Human Resources brings the reader up to speed on the latest hardware and software applications, including personal computers, interactive voice response systems, personal digital assistants, CD-ROMs, expert systems, information networks, and much more. Not just a description of these changes, this important book provides complete "how-to" instructions for reengineering, including activity-based costing, value analysis, and work flow charting. It describes the radical new approaches to organizing work made possible by combining traditional work analysis methods with advances in information technology. Specific cases of reengineered human resource functions, including recordkeeping, employee health care benefits, performance management, training, compensations, and labor relations are illustrated with real-life examples. An entire chapter describes the ways employee competencies will change in the reengineered organizations and jobs of the future. Information on implementing these changes explains how to calculate both the costs and benefits of reengineering. Timely, authoritative, and compelling, Reengineering Human Resources offers human resources professionals the opportunity to shape the future of their workplace and their profession.
