The purpose of this research paper is to investigate the factors that determine the technology adoption of corporate enterprises in using the human resource management (HRM) system in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) area. The structured questionnaire was employed to collect the data from 401 companies, and the probability of the adoption of the HRM-EEC system was analyzed using logistic regression. The empirical result illustrates that reducing the amount of time for registration and usage, as well as the convenience improvements for users, will increase the likelihood of system adoption. However, the probability of system adoption will reduce when the number of companies using the HRM-EEC system significantly increases. Finally, the robustness of this empirical result is diagnosed through the Hosmer-Lemeshow test and the count R2, which measure the prediction power of the model at around 80 percent.
