Abstract

This research aims at exploring a political perspective that includes political benefits, barriers and risks to E-HRM implementation in the context of Bangladesh through adopting an institutional perspective. In order to achieve this aim, we conducted 30 semi-structured qualitative interviews (15 in each ministry) in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Public Administration. Based on the interviews, the findings were thematised as three categories: political benefits, political barriers, and political risks. This research makes a robust contribution to the field as indicating different aspects of political perspectives by adopting an evidence-based approach that comes from the qualitative orientation of this research. This also provides a map for understanding current political benefits, barriers and risks regarding e-HRM implementation.
