The case of terminological variation
In this article we reflect on the problem of terminological variation in the context of electronic Human Resource Management (e-HRM). In particular, the article takes a closer look at central notions in the HRM policies of companies, such as the competency and job profile, and reflects on the problems that may arise when companies wish to automatically exchange competency-based job profiles. Those problems result from differences in the use and understanding of competency-related terminology as well as occupational terms. The article aims to illustrate with examples from the PoCeHRMOM project how we tried to overcome those problems by using our own terminology management practices and tools.
