Abstract

IS support for Human Resource Management (HRM) to date is largely limited to administrative tasks such as payroll and attendance management. However, support for one of the core tasks of HRM is rather scarce: the selection of candidates for open jobs. Also, existing solutions often focus solely upon assessing person-job fit. Despite the fact that researchers stress the importance of other fit types such as person-team and person-organization fit, existing HR systems have not yet integrated such perspectives. Building up on findings from literature, we in this paper develop an approach incorporating the different existing fit types into a unified model of multilevel fit. Based on this, we derive concrete requirements for an IS-supported personnel selection approach.
