What is HRIS?

HRIS, or Human Resources Information System, is a software solution designed to streamline and manage various human resource management processes within an organization. It comes with a suite of tools that help with maintaining employee-related data and automating routine HR functions.

What features does an HRIS include?

Not all HRIS are made equal. A robust HRIS is one that can evolve with the changing needs of your organization and should include features such as:

  • Employee onboarding and offboarding
  • Attendance and time-tracking
  • Employee data management
  • Payroll and compensation management
  • Performance management
  • Employee self-service
  • Anonymous surveys
  • Customizable reporting and analytics

What are the benefits of using an HRIS in your organization?

A quality HRIS can:

  • Improve efficiency and time-savings by automating routine HR tasks like payroll processing, time tracking, and tedious paperwork
  • Increase transparency and compliance by centralizing all important information on a shared platform. This allows everyone to access policies, update personal records, and make leave requests at any time.
  • Facilitate decision-making for HR leaders with the use of reporting tools to analyze employee activity
  • Increase cost-savings by reducing manual efforts of HR staff, freeing up their time to focus on other important tasks
