Internet has transformed our lives and the way we communicate, how we learn, how we work and spend free time, in essence - it has more or less changed every aspect of human society one can think of. This paper deals with the influence of Internet and information technology on work and human resource management. It observes main novelties and (inevitably coming) changes in areas of staffing, motivating and leading and discusses possible adaptations of organization and business. To discover the mentioned changes and consequences, firstly we try to broadly assert present condition in the field, both globally and in Slovenia, and outline promising future trends. Finally, combining that with elements of human-resource management we try to predict basic consequences that IT will have on the way employees are rewarded and the way new employees are acquired.
