AbstractTechnology is continually changing, and organizations are adapting to these changes. As a result of new technology and automation, the Human Resource Department is experience as transition phase in its structure and function. This paper first explores the current functions of the department. It then develops into the current challenges that the HR department faces moving forward. After taking a look at current product offerings available to automate the department, I discuss the possibility of fully automating the department. Implications to automating the department and using these services are also discussed. Can the department fully automate? If the department is using new services, what happens to the employees of the company, and the HR department as a whole? How do these changes not only impact the department, but how the organization operates? These are some questions addressed.
