E- HRM, Interviews Based Study, Banking Sectors


The study's central tenet is to examine the rising role of E-HRM practises in the banking industry. It studies E-HRM practises and their causes by interviewing managers in Pakistan's banking industry, one of the rising economies. The researchers documented the target audience's reactions using a qualitative research technique. Ten semi-structured interviews were performed to elicit information on the primary practises, functions, and barriers related with the role of E-HRM practises among corporate banking management level staff. Nvivo 10 software was utilised for analysis. The data reveal that E-HRM has a direct impact on recruiting, selection, training, job opening, mobile banking, fintech, TRSM, motivation, communication task fulfilment, and bank performance.
