Stiroh, (1999) an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York observes that its defining characteristic is a “focus on increasing globalization and expanding information technology” (pg. 87). Research suggests that revenues from electronic based business to business trade will double over the next five years from $43 billion in 1998 to$1.3 trillion in 2003. Revenues from business to consumer trade are predicted to rise from $8 billion to$108 billion over the same time period (Forrester Research, 1998). However, there is increasing attention to the challenges facing business in the new economy, and an increasing chorus of analysts suggesting how tenuous many of these business models really are. A recent Barron’s article showed that many dot-com companies have only days of remaining cash (Willoughby, March 20, 1999). Such a key emerging phenomenon has not escaped the attention of writers, though the existing body of writing has some important gaps. We would classify existing e-business literature into two groups. First, there is a growing body of literature that discusses the how the Internet is transforming business models and organizational strategies. A second, much smaller body of work has focused on e-HR, or more specifically, the implications of the Internet on various HR practices. dc.language.iso en_US dc.subject economy dc.subject business dc.subject consumer dc.subject HR dc.subject practice dc.subject commerce dc.subject work dc.subject companies dc.subject strategy dc.title The Human Capital “Impact” on E-Business: The Case of Encyclopedia Britannica dc.type preprint dc.description.legacydownloads The_Human_Capital_Impact_on_EWP00_05.pdf: 4583 downloads, before Oct. 1, 2020. local.authorAffiliation Boudreau, John W.: Cornell University local.authorAffiliation Dunford, Benjamin: Cornell University local.authorAffiliation Ramstad, Peter M.: Personnel Decisions International
