This chapter looks at what are perhaps the most obvious applications of e-HR in that they represent traditional functions of the Human Resources Department, managing staff information and compensation and benefit administration. Because this involved the storage of large amounts of information it has also been an area where computers have been used for some years. Portals that provide access to HR administration are often used as gateways to other HR services and functions, such as e-learning, performance management and employee benefits schemes. It is therefore important that they are implemented and designed carefully. One of the requirements of the Data Protection Act is that anyone whose details are stored on a computer should be able to demand to see this information at any time. Organisations typically collect large amounts of information about members of staff, usually distributed across a number of different systems.
