Title

The effect of human resource information system application on employee satisfaction and turnover intention


Abstract

This paper aims to elucidate the effects of Human Resource Information System (HRIS) implementation on turnover intention and employee satisfaction. In the current research, a comprehensive case of e-Recruiting system implementation was investigated, to study unintended consequences based on the perception level of employees, during HRIS use. For this purpose, a conceptual model was used; developed and tested, which combines the attitude and belief factor of technology adoption with job-related outcomes. The data was collected from 167 HR employees working in a global firm, which implemented a novel HRIS for its hiring department. The results of the present study revealed that, employee satisfaction mediates the indirect effect of perception towards applying HRIS on turnover intention. The findings of the present study provide additional information on systems use and technology acceptance, by proposing work-related consequences, as significant extra success variables.
