Languages of publication
In recent years IT technologies certainly have significantly influenced the way human resources are managed. One should remember that using new solutions in the area of IT first of all they should analyse relevance of introduced changes. It should be remembered that using new solutions in the field of IT should first of all analyse the validity of the introduced changes. The article shows that IT systems can also be an important factor improving human resource systems in Polish mining enterprises. Accordingly, in order to reduce the work outsourced, it was proposed to introduce a database enabling the migration of employees within the enterprise. Therefore, a survey was conducted among employees of coal companies in order to check whether the application of the offered database will be accepted by the company's workers and whether currently used IT systems are sufficient.
