This report provides survey and detailed case study evidence of the experiences of organisations in implementing e-recruitment. It also illustrates perceived benefits, and evidence of barriers to implementation.

A key message for recruiters is to acknowledge that the adoption of e-recruitment is about more than technology. Most significantly, e-recruitment is to do with cultural and behavioural change, both within HR and amongst line managers. For e-recruitment to deliver, it is about developing the capability of HR to facilitate the system, and to view the staffing process as an end-to-end process, similar to that of a supply chain.
