AbstractThis dissertation shows that nowadays it is impossible to manage people without manging use of technologies, therefore the title "technology used a tool to manage people", is perfectly suited to what will be presented in this project, which is a connection between what is already known about contemporary theories of human resource management (HRM) and what is being developed in terms of the e-HR platform to manage people. In addition, a new theory of HRM is outlined which is based on the E-HR technology and suggests the alignment between the human resource sector and the business strategy of the organisation. Firstly, the research statrts with the presentation of the evolution of HR, which was initially called 'industrial welfare', and then follows on with main activities and goals of HR today. Secondly, the disseration gives a different perspective of HR and its future challenges in regards to the relationship between technology and traditional HR, resulting in an e-HRM platform. It gives a new approach for the alignment of human resources with technology to show that HR is now part of the business and organisational strategy. HR cannot be restricted to administrative tasks any longer. Finally, it will apply management theories to the real world or, in other words, it will show that it is unavoidable to manage people and HR without making use of IT.
