Understanding HRIS in the workplace

Whitepaper Learning & Development

Your choice of HRIS is really dependent on your workplace, industry, size and specific HR needs. An HRIS, or a Human Resource Information System can also commonly be referred to as HR Software, HR Tech, and HRMS (HR management systems). An HRIS is a way for you to automate, centralise and digitise your HR function. There are a number of benefits associated with implementing an HRIS, but one of the main benefits is efficiency. 

Having a single, integrated platform enables you to store and retrieve data easily, reducing the need for manual processes while also reducing the risk of manual error. When you’re dealing with employee data and payroll, it’s important you’re reducing data entry risks as much as possible. 

HR historically has been seen as a non-revenue generating function, which results in many organisations having limited resources for their HR functions. In these cases, it’s incredibly important that you’re considering ways to reduce basic administration through the use of technology, to ensure that your limited resources are spending their valuable time on the most impactful areas of HR. HR Industry reports are consistently reporting the biggest pain point for HR Professionals as being general administration work.
