Abstract

Human Resource mobile applications (HR mobile apps) can be described as a platform that could centralize multiple human resource (HR) activities towards a better management in human capital. The emerging workers such as part-timer, permanent workers, contract workers, flexible workers and others contribute to this trend. Furthermore, HR mobile apps could help the Human Resource Management (HRM) in centralizing the payroll, attendances, leave applications, and build the relationship with the employees. The future use of this HR mobile apps is not well known although it has been used in the developed countries such as United States of America, United Kingdom and the Republic of Korea. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to explore the drivers and barriers to HR mobile apps used for the organization in Malaysia. Due to the exploratory nature of this research, descriptive research design is considered as appropriate. Foresight tools such as STEEPV analysis, impact-uncertainty and scenario building will be used to answer the research questions. The drivers of the HR mobile apps were identified by using STEEPV analysis. Once the drivers and the barriers had been identified, a questionnaire will be prepared to be distributed to the Multi-National Companies (MNC) in Klang Valley, Malaysia. Purposive sampling will be employed in this study to identify prospect MNC. The questionnaire includes respondent assessment of impact and uncertainty of HR mobile apps. Finally, impact-uncertainty analysis was developed to show the future scenarios of HR mobile apps in Malaysia in the future. As the result, external integration and human resource digital mindset scored the highest impact-uncertainty. Based on the result, four scenarios have been developed to achieve the second objective of this research and the scenario might occur in the future due to the implementation of human resource mobile apps.
