This paper presents the intriguing idea to use mashups and Web 2.0 technologies for Human Resource Management (HRM). It first discusses current use of Web 2.0 used in HRM. Then, the authors describe a few case studies to verify that mashups can provide solutions and additional identical capabilities for HR managers. The authors created four mashup applications (people search, email validation, web site visitors on map and local search engine) developed in Open Kapow and Yahoo Pipe mashup editors for the Admissions Unit for the Postgraduate Studies School at a Malaysian university which performs common staffing functions. Corresponding managers worked with the mashups and their inputs are analyzed. Therefore, the main contributions of this paper are: (1) a focus on the relationship between Mashups and HRM, which is quite new (2) a comparative platform for future research on similar area, and (3) suggestions for organizations to adapt Web 2.0 mashups.
