Abstract

Technology is transforming human resource (HR) practices and activities by improving their effectiveness in managing organizational resources. The use of relevant technology in HR would increase organizational ability to meet new business challenges such as globalization and increase of diversity in workplaces. Computerized payroll system is one of the technologies commonly used in HR and considered as the heart of HR activities. However, the use of computerized payroll system among SMEs is not well researched on especially in Malaysia. Thus, the objective of this study is to identify the use of computerized payroll system among SMEs and the relationship between SMEs managers’ characteristics with Perceived Usefulness and Perceived Ease of Use based on Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). Thisstudy used cross sectional survey research strategy with questionnaire as major data collection method. Data collected was analyzed using descriptive statistics, Spearman correlation coefficient and chi square. It is found that only 58.1% of SMEs surveyed had used the computerized payroll system which is regarded as a matured technology. None of the SMEs’ managers’ characteristics are significantly correlated with Perceived Usefulness and Perceived Ease of Use. This finding show contradictory results when compared to previous studies.
