Abstract

Some HR processes are more easily accepted when they go online, why? The Process Virtualization Theory provides some viable explanation. This article presents the development, testing and modification of an experiment to be used in studies predicting virtualizability of HR processes. The experimental procedure was developed along with an instrument that contains measurement of Process Virtualization requirements and other criterion variables. Two e-HR process mock-up were developed for the testing purpose. Data was collected from 230 business majors from six different colleges located in northern Taiwan. Students were randomly divided into two groups in a computer lab setting. Each group experienced a different e-HR process mock-up. T-test result shows that the procedure and the instrument was able to find a significant difference in relationship requirements and monitoring capability between the two e-HR processes. However, the two groups do not show a significant difference on the criterion variable behavior intention.
