Business prof writes on HR management, IT investments

Adam Seth Litwin, an assistant professor at the Carey Business School with expertise in the areas of strategic human resources management and employment relations, has had his paper “Not Featherbedding but Feathering the Nest: Human Resource Management and Investments in Information Technology” accepted for publication in the tier one journal Industrial Relations, published by the University of California, Berkeley.

Litwin’s research suggests that firms that are slow to adopt information technology find that a “conventional employment model” interferes with fully implementing new technologies, and it focuses attention on the facets of employment relations most conducive for innovation in the workplace.
