Abstract [en]

This paper promotes philosophical arguments for a practice based view to e-HRM, as an alternative to evidence based management, to close the gap between HRM academics and practitioners. A reflexive theorizing of HR work is proposed, encouraging diversity in epistemological and ontological assumptions to support a mindful problemization of empirical work. In my study of an HR transformation project at Sandvik Corporation I argue for a positioning of e-HRM studies towards a deeper acknowledgment of situated work practices. I also propose some contemporary discussions within organization studies and information systems research, acknowledging especially the entanglement of technology and every day practices, and ethnography as a strategy of investigation. Finally I conclude with a discussion of the contribution of this research approach to the study of e-HRM.
