Despite all the hype about e-learning, the real breakthrough in technology, at least as far as HR goes, is in the development of the corporate intranet for people management purposes. Bryan Hopkins and James Markham's new book explains the potential for intranets in every aspect of HR; personnel administration, performance management, employee development, communication and knowledge management, as well as training and e-learning. It asks and answers the key questions you need to ask yourself and provides case studies illustrating how organizations have successfully exploited their intranet to help their people work more effectively and efficiently. HR managers are under pressure to cut costs and to increase the effectiveness and range of the services they deliver. In many organizations there is also considerable pressure to maximize the returns on investment in technology. This book provides you with the means to achieve all of these goals.
