But, HRM departments of most of the countries are no longer doing file or paperwork, rather with the invention and advancement of IT, efficient, faster and cost saving. Moreover, the world is moving towards 4IR, where technologies, AI, VR will the big player. In this regard, E-HRM is to create a sustainable and competitive advantage through employee engagement. Textile is one of the major successful manufacturing sectors with greater contribution to the national economy of Bangladesh. So, the purpose of study is to ascertain the relationship between five E-HRM practices (independent variables) and organizational sustainability as steady increase in profit and market growth (Dependent variables). Cronbach alpha has been used to check the reliability and validity of variables. Pearson Correlation and OLS Regression analysis have been used to show the relationship with the help of SPSS. After analyzing the data, it was revealed that all the E-HRM functions have positive correlation with organizational sustainability. Notably, E-recruitment & selection (ERS) is the most significant function (0.006) and HRIS & e-communication (HRISC) relatively low significant (0.045) function among all E-HRM functions. The study will hopefully be proven useful for decision makers of various firms who wish to reduce costs and increase profit by adopting environment friendliness to gain sustainable development.
