Research 2: High Performance Work System
This study presents a theoretical framework demonstrating the relationship between high-performance work systems (HPWS) and organizational performance. HPWS are conceptualized as a system of human resource (HR) practices, and it lead to (a) financial performance via administrative efficiency and (b) sustainable performance via flexibility arising from the coordination and exploitation of knowledge resources.
Organizations using HPWS make a noteworthy investment in their pool of human capital so that employees are well trained, skilled, and empowered to perform their jobs. Existing perspectives on HPWS are directly allied with research on high involvement work practices and high-performance management practices. In fact, researchers often note that various naming preferences are frequently used interchangeably and refer to the similar phenomena of interest. HPWS is defined as an integrated system that is not only aligned with the HR practices and strategies but is also aligned with the organization's strategy.
After thorough analysis of this study the researcher concluded that HPWS has a strong relationship with the organizations performance. In order to achieve the organizations objective the HR should implement HPWS to ensure that clear contribution is given not only by the HR but also by the employees towards the achievement of final outcome.
The researcher during this study identified some of the HR categories which may comprise the HPWS. These categories are supported with description and examples are listed below:
HR Practice Categories
Extensiveness of procedures
to evaluate relevant knowledge,
skills, and abilities for job fit
and organization fit

Research 3: The Role of e-HRM in Building Positive Work Attitudes
Generation Y are the new generation of employees. These employees are talented, technology oriented and self-starting, but at the same time are not too much committed or loyal towards their work. Developing effective work arrangements for such a new generation is essential for the future growth and sustainability of firm competitive advantage. This research suggests that e-HRM systems assist work arrangements that produce positive outcomes; E-HR signals and reinforces the organization's investment in the employee-organization relationship. This broad study provides priceless and at times unpredicted outcome particularly for the new and thus far little known Generation Yers.
HRM departments should become genuine â€žbusiness partnersâ€Ÿ competent to generate and sustain a company's strategic value. The rapid growth of the Internet in recent years has obliged HR department towards the new e-HRM approach. Latest technological opportunities are a link that could help unite the two sides of the working relationship; for organizations, e-HRM solutions are techniques to maintain organizational flexibility and knowledge-sharing.
E-HRM can be designed with three types of goals in mind: improving conventional HRM strategic orientation, improving client service orientation and improving efficiency, thus creating three special types of e-HRM: operational, transformational and relational.
The results of this research are listed below:
Are Generation Y Technologically ready: the results suggested that there is no one best way to deal with Gen-Yers. They are optimistic towards technology but feel insure while dealing with it.
Are E-HRM systems adopted and useful: E-HRM is not fully adopted and needs much more attention all over the world. However E-HRM is definitely useful and helps as a retention strategy for those Gen-Yers who are fully comfortable with technology.
Does E-HR influences the employees work attitude: it definitely influences the employees work attitude as it influences trust in HR department.
From a more realistic perspective these outcomes suggest that organizations have to enhance their e-HRM investments, but they also have to introduce and communicate them better in order to be consistent not merely with the technological optimism of the fresh employees but also with their technological distress (Bissola & Imperatori, n.d).
