Abstract. In this article, we explore the implications of introducing information technology into the work of the personnel department to increase efficiency. Modern relations in the enterprise dictate that the most important department mediated by information technologies (a network-based organization) be a strategic, flexible, cost-effective and service-oriented organization. We use the experience and initiatives of enterprises and national banks to show the implications of the introduction of information technology in personnel management. Although the influence of IT on HRM has attracted the interest of scientists, no empirical research has been conducted in this area in Azerbaijan. The survey was conducted among IT managers and specialists from the commercial and banking sector, based on which data show that IT is widely used in organizations to perform HRM functions in the dynamic economy of Azerbaijan. The results also showed that, while IT affects all sectors in terms of HRM to a certain extent, the types of IT used vary considerably in their recruitment, maintenance and development tasks (recruitment, maintenance, and development tasks). Our empirical results also show that these organizations do not apply information technologies systematically and properly when performing the functions of the HRM. In conclusion, we offer several recommendations for improving management, as well as future research.
