Making use of the Internet in the HR Office


Many HR Managers spend hours each day trying to keep up to date with current issues and trends. Using the Internet for on-line research has increased in value and importance and one that can be crucial to the HR Managers career development.

By using search engines alone could miss many very important issues, therefore spend some time becoming more familiar with the way that the Internet uses search engines would be highly recommended.

A principle to take into consideration is the KISS one, Keep IT Simple Searching. Here is a few pointers to take into consideration:

  • Gain a better understanding of how search engines work
  • Do not rely on search engines alone
  • Use other fact-finding tools such as e-mail, phone and address information
  • When you do not know where to begin, use magazines and virtual reference desks for topics you are not that familiar with
  • Use legal, government and company information research resources

Most people appear to have picked up using the Internet without much training, one factor being that they have not got the time to do so. You may find that an hours tuition may in fact lead to hours of time being saved back in the workplace.
